About Lake Whitney State Park

For Lake Whitney camping choose from campsites with water only, water and electricity, or full hookups. We also have screened shelters, many with a lake view.

We offer water activities galore, from fishing and swimming to boating and skiing. On shore, you can explore our trails, see the stars, try geocaching, or set up camp. Rent our group recreation hall or camp for your next gathering.

A wide variety of wildlife lives in the park. Watch for deer, raccoons, snakes, armadillos and opossums. Wild turkeys and bald eagles have also been sighted here.

Beautiful Lake

Only 2 trails, one of which is lacking. But it makes up with beautiful lake views.

Beautiful Sunsets and wild life too!

Large park with spacious sites, level, shaded and full hookup’s. We saw lots of deer and wild turkey! Great place to fish, kayak& hike!

Nice

Great park. Has lots of different types of camping. Clean bathrooms. Some hiking . Great swimming beaches. Lots of little coves for pulling your boat into next to your camp spots.

Cabin 13 is BEST

Visited here at least 30 times…ALWAYS love it!

Come Hell or High Water We Are Camping

We had limited weekends to take the grandkids camping. It has been raining non stop all over Texas. I began to look for places within 2 hours of Fort Worth. Texas State Parks are a great. I settled on Lake Whitney. They have these shelter sites that are awesome. For $30 per night ($10 per night more than normal e&w site) plus $5 per adult gate fee. That may not be economical for everyone, but $40 for an overnight camp was fine. The shelters are very clean and well kept. Inside is a picnic table and enough floor space for another plus some. So if your tent fails in you go. The top of walls are screened and bottom solid. I set up my camp kitchen and we ate meals inside due to weather. We set up our large tent behind the shelter to block wind from the lake. The site also had it's own parking, another table outside and fire ring. We had site 4 right across from the lake and swimming area. The bath house was very clean and only a short walk. You can fish license free from the shore. There are 5 or 6 moderate hiking trails. Also the park is home to plenty of woodland animals. The 4 yo and I took a 2 am bathroom break and saw a herd of dear about 30 head.

The park is very good for families and fishing.

There are also a boat ramp, small airstrip and day use areas.

The staff is awesome.

Flat land

Flat land and water, open camp sites with no privacy, unless you wanna fish - this isn’t the place you wanna go

not really liking it

the layout is weird. no waterfront by the full hookups. All the good sites are standard hookups or no electricity at all. Shade all around but over your camper. So it has a hard time cooling. Just not what I have heard about it.

Whitney Wonderland

We really enjoyed the stay here over Memorial Day weekend. The pull through sites were fantastic. There was plenty of room for everyone, even on a busy holiday! Fishing from the shore left a bit to be desired but it looked like thete were better areas if you have a boat. There was plenty to do to keep 4 teenage boys entertained for 3 days.

Best for fishing

The campsites are fairly open, easy to see your neighbors and vice versa. Two short hiking trails each about a mile in length, both pretty flat. They are rebuilding the shelter area due to past flooding. In the shelter area, showers are not completely private. Again, the sites there too are pretty open. The lake is large and can get pretty choppy on windy days. Lits of fishing boats. Swim area with picnic tables near shelter area. Play area near rv sites. The newer large restroom area near the rv sites are private.

Family friendly

Love going here with my kiddo! There‘s lots of easy access to the water and the trails are nice. We’ve gone during different times of the year and never had any issues. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
