South Llano River State Park is south of Junction in Kimble County. The 2,600-acre site, adjacent to the South Llano River, was donated to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1977 and was opened to the public in 1990. Because of his love and respect for the land, Walter Buck donated his ranch to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

The park offers approximately 18 miles of hiking/biking trails, 58 campsites with water and electricity, six walk-in tent sites, and five hike-in primitive campsites. The park is open year round. The Turkey Roost area of the park is also open year round, with restricted hours from Oct. 1 - March 31  (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.). The park has two miles of river frontage, a large pecan bottom, and typical Hill Country areas. The 523-acre, wooded bottomland is home to white-tailed deer and the Rio Grande turkey. The bottomland represents one of the most substantial and oldest winter turkey roosts in the central portion of the state.
