Cameron Park - Lover's Leap

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Cameron Park - Lover's Leap

There are countless “Lover’s Leaps” – it seems that whenever there is a tall cliff somewhere in the world, someone has spun a story about two star-crossed lovers who decided to end their lives there, because society wouldn’t let them be together in peace.

Well, here’s another one – this time on the north end of Cameron Park. The story here is that two Native Americans from warring tribes had fallen in love, and they chose this spot to commit suicide together. There are claims that the couple can still occasionally be seen around the area, and that their whispers can be heard if you listen really close.

Who knows if any of it is true, but this “Lover’s Leap” is still worth a visit just for the incredible views of the Brazos River below.

    1. I don’t know about ghosts at Lovers Leap in Waco, but I’ve seen and dealt with several people who have jumped there trying to kill themselves, and some succeeding. I was a Paramedic in Waco for several years.
