3 Reviews of Harbor Bay - Lake Meredith National Rec Area
Great for access to the lake

We camped at site 3 in Harbor Bay. HB3 is in a small loop off the main access road with a vault toilet nearby. The FREE campsite had two other sites close by but no one else was in either of the sites the night we camped. Each site has a covered picnic area, grill, and fire pit. We had a beautiful view of the lake and easily walked down to enjoy the sunset. Other visitors were swimming, but keep in mind that the lake here has muddy access and not a sandy beach.

Over Crowded , but ok

We came on a Saturday morning were able to find a sweet single back down road ( which was not the best ) but we were fine in our Subaru , everything else in the area was packed in with campers and boats . Our site was small but we car camped and were great ! Great swim area enclosed by brush making nice private area. Major con is no trees for shade ! Free to camp though !!

Tucked away from it all

Tucked into a low valley on the eastern shore of Lake Meredith, this campground offers tons of space for tent and small RV campers, with just a few sites that can accommodate a larger RV. There are several vault toilets and trash receptacles, but no drinking water – so plan accordingly. Sites are FREE and first-come, first-served.

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, more seemed to be on the less developed, western shore of the lake. 

The town of Fritch is less than 3 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. It is super cool!
