This Texas Lake was Featured on TikTok
Stillhouse Hollow Lake in Belton is a very popular fishing spot, but I had no idea it had an island. Stillhouse Park Beach has an access point with water shallow enough to wade through.
TikTok user @mycurlyadventures shocked a lot of Central Texas residents with the video of the beach, along with its location and some tips on how to reach it. Many followers commented that they had no idea this place existed until now.

Parks in Central Texas
According to narcity.com, if you want additional views and some exercise, Dana Peak Park and Chalk Ridge Falls Park both have hiking trails that lead to the lake. Both parks are open year-round, and offer fantastic scenery.
If you're looking to spend some time by yourself, this is the perfect area to get away from it all and still be close to home. Who says you can't afford island life?
