Visitors to this day use state park can enjoy historical study, picnicking, nature study, fishing, swimming and viewing Texas longhorn cattle. The Visitor Center contains memorabilia from President Johnson's presidency and interactive displays about the land and people that shaped a president. Adjacent to the visitor center, the German immigrant experience in the region is illustrated by two log cabins built in the mid-1800s, and the nearby Sauer-Beckman Farmstead , a living history farm.
A nature trail, including a Hill Country botanical exhibit, winds past wildlife enclosures stocked with bison, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, other native wildlife, and longhorn cattle. These animals have played a part in the park's history, and the local wildlife continues to be an important attraction for visitors. The park is famous for its spring wildflower display.
This park is located across the river from the LBJ Ranch, part of Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park,
