Free, free, and free!

This campground is located on an impressive peninsula sticking out into Lake Meredith and probably has the best location to view the sunset on the entire reservoir. The small campground has about a dozen sites, all first-come, first-served. None of these are good for RVs longer than 15 feet, but ours and our only other neighbor (in a van) fit just fine. 

The bathrooms were very clean and are family-style, single use with toilet, sink and shower. The water was hot with good pressure. Did I mention this campground and showers are FREE?

The nearby boat launch is just down the hill, with a huge parking lot (our guess is that the lake gets BUSY in summer) offering some great fishing and water sport opportunities. There were a few hiking and mountain biking trails,though more seemed to be on the less developed, western shore of the lake. 

The town of Fritch is less than 4 miles away with a few restaurants and a small grocery store and gas stations. Be sure to check the Alibates National Monument, just 10 miles south of town. A very cool, little known spot.
