  • A roadside park beside U.S. Highway 287 northwest of Woodville is a wonderful place just for sitting on a park bench, listening to the sounds of the forest, and dipping your toes in a spring-fed pool built by Civilian Conservation Corps workers in the 1930s. Families come here for reunions, kids enjoy running around the expansive grounds, and Scout troops often camp beneath the tall trees.
