Cameron Park has so much to offer!! The number of beautiful trails, playgrounds, and views is amazing. The size of the park too is surprising for the city. It's the second largest municipal park in the US, just behind Central Park.

We stopped for two days so my wife could check out The Silos. We discovered that the park which borders the Brazos River is a great spot to stroll or do some serious hiking! Once you hike up the cliffs you're in a whole different world of silence and bamboo trails.Do yourself a favor and stop in Waco for 2... More

In October 2016, on a beautiful Texas day our family was visiting Waco, the Mammoth Site and Texas Ranger Museum. We had driven down from Fort Worth, with family we were visiting and had a picnic at Circle Point, in a pavilion on the cliff over looking the river. I'm not sure if it is the Bosque or the Brazos...

They pulled a romeo and juliet and leaped to their death so they could be together forever. <3 Giving the cliff its... More

Cameron Park is a true jewel in Waco with its location along the river and the many mountain biking and hiking trails. Also spots to picnic or overlook the river!

Nicely laid out, with plenty of explanations of history, etc. Well maintained signage, toilets, views. Jacob's ladder and Lover's Leap well worth visiting. Free parking all along the way. All free entry.

Hiking Jacob's Ladder was a small challenge. The steps are deep, so I had to hold onto the ladder in a few places. It is a nice little hike. I noticed that some people would go up and down in order to get in some good cardio and strength training. If you are in Cameron Park, hike the Ladder. Once... More

I love driving thru the heavily wooded areas. Their pristine beauty reminds me of some places in Central America. Likewise driving along the river is very peaceful. The shelters there are perfect for outings...the meadows even are terrific for frisbee or picnics. We are so blessed to have this beautiful place to visit daily.
