Great place for birding. The Audubon Society makes regular visits here and has scheduled walks with other birders.
Live Oak Slough is next to O R Mitchell Lake 1 and is always a bliss to check out; Long Hollow is another tremendous spot to visit close by. This lake is so wonderful. O R Mitchell Lake 1 is wonderful enough to spend more than a day at, Alamo River RV Resort is a wonderful local campground. Dry warm beds await you at Travelodge San Antonio Lackland
A F B, and Pony Parties Anywhere is a good scene to ride horses near O R Mitchell Lake 1. A visit to Guadalupe River State Park revives the soul, and in case you're seeking something fun to do in close proximity, pop by Alamo Dragway for some go-kart racing.
