  • This park is a little out of way, but worth the drive to visit and day trip or spend a night or 2! We were greeted by 2 very friendly park rangers. Went inside for a little info. We received a map of the park and drove in. Day passes are 5.00 per person. We have a Texas State Park Pass so it pays for each visit. The screen shelters are pretty decent with 2 twin beds, bring you a sleeping bag or some sheet. It was very comfy screen shelters. The air conditioned cabins have to be reserved 24 hours upon your arrival online. You cannot book the air conditioned cabins the same day of arrival. The Lake is soooooo huge, 2 piers for fishing or hanging out. Many picnic tables and grills for cooking. This is a BEAUTIFUL park!!! Great job to the rangers for keeping it up so nicely! Oh, and you will see roadrunners, deer, birds of all kind and plenty fish in lake!
  • Awesome park. Water was so nice. Camp sites are awesome, located right by the water. Good sized fishing piers. Great place to go just to get away for a day, or 10.
