    Welcome to Meridian State Park Campground, a charming spot nestled in the heart of Texas. This place is perfect for those who appreciate a quieter, more intimate camping experience. The campground offers a mix of tent, RV, cabin, glamping, and yurt accommodations, so there's something for everyone.

    One of the standout features here is the lake, which is great for swimming, fishing, and kayaking. The water is clean and inviting, making it a favorite among visitors. The park also has several well-maintained trails that are ideal for hiking and biking. Just watch out for spider webs if you're an early morning hiker!

    The campsites themselves are well-kept and come with amenities like electric hookups, drinking water, and picnic tables. Some sites are pull-through, which is a big plus for RV campers. Site 01 is particularly popular for its seclusion. If you're bringing a big rig, be aware that the sites can be a bit tight, but they are surprisingly level.

    Pets are welcome, and there's even a market on-site for any last-minute supplies you might need. Firewood is available for purchase, and yes, you can enjoy a campfire here. Just make sure to clean up after your pets to keep the area pleasant for everyone.

    The park staff are known for their friendliness and helpfulness, making your stay even more enjoyable. Kelly at the office gets a lot of shout-outs for her excellent service.

    So, if you're looking for a peaceful getaway with plenty of outdoor activities and friendly faces, Meridian State Park Campground is a solid choice. Just don't forget your air mattress if you're tent camping—the ground can be a bit rocky!

    This is a great primitive beach area. There is adequate parking at this ramp. This is one of the three ramps on the lake that are functional when the lake drops to 16 feet low.

    Steele Creek Park is a Corps of Engineering park which offers primitive camping and there are limited facilities in the Park. The park is located just south of Morgan and Lakeside Marina. It is an open access Park. There are two primary areas of the park. The first is on the river channel side of the park and is on the north side of the Steele Creek Park. This area has great camp sites on a bluff overlooking the lake. This side also has some good natural beach area below the camp sites. The southern section of the park overlooks Steele Creek itself. This is a brushy creek and while there is some swimming areas available, it is not as swim friendly as the other side. Each side of the park has a boat ramp. This is a remote park area and is patrolled on some frequency by the Sheriff’s Department. Boat launching is FREE at both ramps.
