Deep in the heart of Texas may be one of the coolest nude recreation places without an ocean. Hippie Hollow is a legal nude recreation area just outside Austin, Texas. It’s big, clean with a long shoreline, big boulders for sunbathing, trees for shade, trails for walking and a lake for swimming, rafting, or just floating around with a cold drink.
A weekday in July didn’t produce a big crowd, but there was a good assortment of men and women, young and old. A few couples, a few singles, two sisters re-connecting, some roommates chilling out for a day and our team. A good crowd of straight and gay all with one thing in mind – kicking back and enjoying some natural fun.
We’ve heard things get a lot more lively on weekends, when boats pull up along the shore, bbq’s and ice chests come out and it turns into a land and sea party. Sorry we missed that but hope we’ll be back in Austin another time when the party is happening.
We did some swimming, chilled out on a raft, played a little frisbee, and hiked along the paths through the oak trees. Even on a quiet day it was a great break.
