2 Reviews of Sanford - Yake - Lake Meredith National Rec Area
Free, Beautiful, and WARM!

This campground, located on the bluff overlooking the dam and a large part of Lake Meredith, offers about 10 traditional RV sites with water and electric. There are also plenty of tent sites, each with a covered picnic pavillion. There is a sanitary dump, the bathrooms were very clean and are family-style (single use with toilet, sink, and shower). The water was hot with good pressure. The best part…this campground is FREE (unless you need hook-ups)!

The nearby boat launch is just down the hill, with a huge parking lot (our guess is that the lake gets busy in summer). The area offers some great fishing and water sport opportunities. There are 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, a small grocery store, and gas stations. Be sure to check the Alibates Flint National Monument, just 10 miles south of town. It is worth a stop!

Amazing Views and FREE!!!

My family and I decided to take a one night visit to Lake Meredith to see the lake again after our last visit was shot down due to the Mother's day fire a few years back. To our amazement the park as green and the lake was at a decent level. The boating community were out in full force but there was still a lot of campsites available. The best thing about these sites: they are FREE! Nice facilities with showers. There is a swimming lake as well with loads of fishing all over the lake.
