  • 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.
  • We love this park. Just an hour east of Dallas but you feel so much further away. Tons of places close by to eat or bring your own food and cook on the grill. The water was perfect and they have an actual beach area with a sand bar that goes out at least a hundred yards. We even caught several catfish from the bank. We'll be back for sure.
  • Very nice State Park. I was just stopped for the night as I traveled to my destination. Having arrived on a weekday after Labor Day, it was basically empty! I love it when I feel like I have the entire place to myself! Paved RV site with ample and well maintained electric and water. Showers are private (able to lock the door behind you) and well maintained. Park was also well kept. I would stay here again for a longer duration the next time!
  • This park is so clean, quiet, and beautiful!! There are lots of birds!! The sunset over the lake, with birds diving down to the water was such an amazing sight!! We camped at site 53, which has an amazing view of the sunrise over the lake. Site 54 has the best view. The hiking trails are lovely and well marked!! I heard the fishing is great, too!! The ants are are rampant, so bring insect repellent!!
  • Love this place. Went this weekend for the Christmas light show and it was so much fun. So many people participated. It was just family fun. Thank you state park
