The Standard Times recently published their annual San Angelo Living 2017 newspaper insert. It had this to say about Twin Buttes Reservoir:
The City Park at Twin Buttes is located five miles west of San Angelo off of U.S. Highway 67. Both primitive and RV camping sites with electrical hook-ups, water and chemical toilets, and boat launches. Primarily large mouth and white bass are found in the lake.The City needs to offer a correction: Only primitive camping is available at Twin Buttes, as there are no restrooms or electrical hookups. They've been gone for decades.
How many people received the insert? One website said the Sunday paper goes to 31,222 readers. How many readers have RVs?
Texas Parks and Wildlife has a Twin Buttes Reservoir page. It steers the public to camp at San Angelo State Park at Lake O. C. Fisher.
It will be interesting to see how citizens act at Twin Buttes over the July 4th holiday. The City has been all over the place on fireworks at Twin Buttes. It used to be the annual trashing of Twin Buttes, but recent efforts reduced or eliminated fireworks use. That's the plan for 2017, low or no fireworks.
I hope to be on the water, windsurfing or standup paddling. Stay safe and have fun this July 4th.
