Choke Canyon State Park is located just about an hour away from Pleasanton, less if you are living in Jourdanton. The park consists of two units, South Shore and Calliham, is located on 26,000-acre Choke Canyon Reservoir, a water supply for Corpus Christi.
If you are looking for something to do with the kids this Friday, May 2 here’s your chance to attend a scavenger hunt the park is offering. The hunt is from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and is being held every Friday until October 17.
It’s a race to see who can find every challenge first! This scavenger hunt is both fun and educational. It’s a great way to get your child outdoors and have fun with them. It will be a race to see who can complete the challenge first and tell the ranger how it relates to the food web.
But while you’re at the park remember, even if you find something, leave it alone, don’t take it with you. That way it is there for the next person to enjoy!
This hunt is held every Friday at 10 a.m. and lasts forty-five minutes. Please meet at the pavilion by the boat ramp. Remember to bring water and wear sunscreen.
This event is free to attend for campers and day users. Park entrance fees are $5 per person (age 13 and up).
The South Shore Unit is a day-use only park (6 a.m.-10 p.m.) and offers boating, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing and birding. The Calliham Unit offers camping, picnicking, boating, hiking, wildlife viewing, birding, fishing, lake beach and softball and volleyball areas.
