Jacob's Review:
   It's a pretty cool lake, it looks good. It's really neat to go water-skiing by the cliffs! You should bring a bathing suit and sun lotion so you don't get burnt. And there is an Island you can go on but you have to have a boat to get to it. Some people duck hunt there sometimes.


Dad's Notes:
   Stillhouse is closer to Killeen and easier to get to than Belton Lake. The lake is also not as crowded as Belton, making it a great lake for water sports. The best skiing is near the cliffs - it blocks any wind, nice and deep - great skiing!! It's also a great place to go fishing for white Bass, crappie, channel and yellow catfish. Restroom facilities at most of the parks!

Union Grove Park: RV sites w/electricity and water hookups and three screen shelters are available too. Restroom facilities, Showers, dump stations, fishing pier, big swim beach and boat ramp. You can also go hiking, biking, horseback riding, have a picnic and just enjoy the scenery there. Model Airplane Field too!
