  • Our first trip to Lake Tawakoni and the weather was terrible, but it did not keep us from having a great time walking Spring Point Trail. Staff at the entrance were very friendly and helpful. Park is not huge and is easy to maneuver through. Facilities were very clean and the park was well manicured. We only walked the Spring Point Trail that day; there had been quite a bit of rain and we were in muddin boots. Even though it was very foggy, we were still able to view quite a number of birds both small and large. The dense fog lent a 'spooky' vibe to our walk and we had a lot of fun with it. Trails were well marked and easy to follow with plenty of places for camping / fishing.. We will definitely be back again when the weather is more cooperative.
  • I absolutely love this place . This park offers a bit of everything for the outdoorsman. The trails are fun to walk or bike and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. Fishing is great here , lots of catfish . Camping and this park is clean , clean ,clean . The restrooms stay supplied and clean and there is a place for swimming . My family and I love coming here every year .
  • Lake Tawakoni is a meticulously maintained park. We were lucky to get a site. However, our site was the only one with no privacy. Our backend overlooked the bathrooms. Wish bushes or something could be planted. The lake was beautiful!
  • The state park is beautiful. Nice trails, Serene views, amazing lake with small waves. The restrooms on the other have could do with some help from exhaust fan and also a bit of cleaning. Would love to spend more time there.
  • We went here once because Lake Holbrook was way too busy. It was actually very nice. They have a covered area and a playground and a nice little beach area. It's a great place for a swim, the water was a little stinky and the entrance a tad slimy, but it's a lake, so... We had a great time. I would recommend especially if you don't care for super large crowds of people.
