  • My wife and I decided to spend a quiet and relaxing weekend at this lake. We rented a cabin that has a full bathroom, kitchen, two queen beds, HVAC, and a fire place. The fire place made the trip spec...  more »
  • The lake is beautiful and the park is well maintained. The park people were very friendly and accommodating, so I will return.  more »
  • It was Hot! Over 100 degrees hot. But we hiked the trail to the scenic overlook anyway. It was worth it. Then we went swimming in the lake, which really cooled us off. There is a small general store, ...  more »

  • One of my favorite state parks - so many great campsites, incredible views, friendly staff. Giving 4 stars as our most recent trip involved a rusted out grill collapsing on us as we were cooking dinner. May need to have equipment/sites checked more regularly/consistently, but overall a wonderful place to go with or without the kids/family.
  • I've been coming to Possum Kingdom every since I was a little kid when my dad would bring me. That was back when the deer would come out of the mountains and we could feed them Ritz crackers that the small convenience store sold. Now I'm 37 years old and I'm bringing my kids to Possum Kingdom and they enjoy it also.
  • Very beautiful Park for camping and fishing. There are couple of small hiking trails one can do with kids. Public toilets well kept.
  • Loved every minute of PK. The office staff was so nice and welcoming and waking up to a beautiful Texas sunrise and watching the bazillion stars at night is truly magical. We will definitely be coming back.
  • Full service state park on the shore of Possum Kingdom Lake, located in the Palo Pinto Mountains between Mineral Wells and Breckenridge. Western area includes trailer camping area, cabins, walk-in camping area, fishing pier, and swimming area. Eastern area includes a boat ramp and multiple tent camping areas that range from open sites near the water to more secluded sites above and near the water. Park water is NOT POTABLE--drinking water must be brought in. Excellent lake access, but few non-lake-centered amenities such as trails. Can be incredibly crowded, particularly on summer weekends and holidays.
