About: Rio Vista is actually very different in the summer than it is in the winter. During the summer months, the resort is abuzz with lake activities and water sports. Boats are being taken in and out of the lake on our boat ramp.
The boat slips and piers are full of ski boats, fishing boats, and jet skis. Groups without their own boats rent our kayak or canoe, or have jet skis and larger boats delivered to our pier from Splash (or other boat rental places on the lake). People are swimming in the lake and swimming pool, playing ping pong or riding bikes. Families are playing baseball, bocce, pool, horseshoes or other games. You can smell the barbeque and hear the laughter. It is truly a fun place to be!
In the winter things change. The Winter Texans arrive from Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Canada, etc. They bring with them a zest for life and a happy spirit. They play golf, go antiquing, play card games, play pool, visit area sites and fish, fish, fish.
As a group, we go out to dinner, have pot luck suppers, breakfasts and brunches. (Yes, a lot of our activities do revolve around food.) But, we also play bingo or Texas Hold'em and have Christmas parties, Valentine parties, St. Patty's Day parties, etc. - you get the picture. In the winter, we also have visiting bald eagles. There is an eagle's nest just six miles from Rio Vista, and the eagles stay well into April.
Directions: Rio Vista Resort is in Kingsland off Highway 1431 behind the Wells Fargo Bank, within four blocks of the bank, the library and the Arts and Carfts Center.
