    Have lived by Lake Meredith for 34 years and worked for the Natiinal Park Service one summer! Great place and have watched it go from 90 feet to 50 feet and the landscape is still beautiful !!  more »

    Lake Meredith is a jewel! The hiking trails are wonderful. Now we can go even when we're not planning to be on the water.

    Free Camping @ its best. My camping spot was up a bluff from the lake, as were the others. Not many beaches at this lake. Strong winds at times. The showers are new and private: bath with toilet, shower, bench, sink, which can be locked. Absolutely wonderful spray. Made driving six hours that day worth it.

    Great lake. They just need someone to clean up a bit and attend to it every once in a while.

    Camp sites are free! The bathrooms are clean and have nice showers! I don't know why this place wasn't crowded, but I'd recommend going here if you're in the area.
