Rock climbing and kayaking

LMWSP has tons of activities for the family. You can spend the day exploring and climbing the rock formations, bring climbing gear if you plan to get to the top. You can also spend your day on the water, swimming on the beach, fishing from a pier or exploring the shoreline by kayak. Primitive,…

Closed?

Not sure what was up, but this campsite is gated off and locked with no trace of anyone having been there for quite some time. Try at your own risk, just don't plan to stay here and roll in at 10 pm like we did.

Wish we had stayed here

We didn't actually camp here. We were camped nearby at Possum Kingdom State Park and came here to check things out. The sites were large, wooded with privacy. Lots of cool trails. Lots of birds around the lake.

Perfect location

What a beautiful spot. Reminded us of the way real campgrounds used to be. Lots of space between campers. Not a bad spot in the park . All are so close to the lake and beautiful views everywhere.

Nice sites, solid choice

We stayed at site 136 in dogwood canyon, and it was lovely. Next time I'd stay at 137 for a bit more isolation, as you could see the boardwalk from our campsite as the area is sparsely wooded. Couldn't see the parking lot due to brush, but it was a very short walk and that was nice. Composting…

Google Maps needs Help

Caution- Google Maps has no idea where the entrance to this campground is. Entry was very easy and the Ranger on duty was extremely helpful. There is lot's of space in Section 1 but through out the campground there are not very many full hookup sites.

Pros: Nice patio pads at most sites,…

Close to town and still in the middle of now where

I have visited this a few times in 2019 and my husband and I went up here to star gaze. It’s always been quiet, clean and spacious. We enjoy getting away for a little bit and being that we live in Denton this is a great place to sneak off to.

Camping at Texas State Parks

I've camped at several Texas State Parks recently. They're very nice places to camp at. Restrooms are well kept. Some are free and can stay up to 14 days.

Ray Roberts Lake

I tent camped here in December at the Hawthorn campground site 8. One thing I wasn’t expecting was that this was a walk in site. It was about 100 yards from the parking lot to site 8. Kind of a pain when setting up camp but it makes for a very quiet camping experience once you’re done. Water…

This is a big camping area, lots of campsites near the lake

The campground is nice and well maintained and sites are fairly well spaced with lots of grass, trees and open areas. The park staff were very friendly and helpful. We were in site 78 for 5 days. Only a few of the sites in the Deer Ridge campground loop looked level, fortunately ours was one of…

My favorite

One of my favorite Texas state parks. Ve RT y nice campground on a lake. But do NOT miss the penitentary. Cliffs forming a prison below used during the civil war. Amazing rock structure with rock climbers.

Equestrian camp small but good location near fort

We stayed one night at the equestrian camp on our way through the area. We prefer leaving the equestrian spots for horse owners but it was the last one available in the park. Although, of the 5 sites in this loop, none of us had horses!

With only a couple of small pens and not much space, we…

My husband’s favorite spot!

We love coming here because it’s convenient, private, and by the water. All the spots are great! Our favorites are in the 90~94 loop and a friend said the 20-24 loop is also great waterfront spots.

Bathrooms and showers are clean. Easy dump station. And great hookups.

Simple Beauty

The park was a simple beauty get away. Nothing too spectacular, but still a nice spot in nature. The hosts and rangers were super nice and helpful along the way. Some campsites were so-so while others had 200 degrees of lake front views. These spots were jaw dropping.

The hiking is simple, the…
