Spent an afternoon out on the lake.

Nice to be out on the water. Was a little chilly this time of year but enjoyed our day. Liked the marina set up where everyone gathered and socialized.

Take a bike ride or nice walk with your dogs on the dam! Great view and very peaceful! Also excellent bird watching!

We had a wedding photo shoot there and it was amazing. The lake itself is not very big though. The chore is quite rocky. But it is nice seeing blue water and the atmosphere itself is really lovely.

We love this park, prices are reasonable, and for us close to home. We can come camp or visit for a day and feel like we are miles away from where we live. They keep it clean.

You can't beat walking or biking for free on top of the Joe Pool Lake dam. We come here time after time for the scenery and free exercise. The best time to come is late April or early May when you can see the bluebonnets blooming. But this is always a beautiful place to walk or ride a bike. You... More

We visited the Lake in Sept and did some knee boarding with our family - 6 kids in all The water was pretty cool even at this time of the year, but that didn't stop us from enjoying a few hours of swimming. We were pretty cautious about where we anchored and made sure the kids stayed in life jacket... More

Enjoyed the peacefulness of our location. The fishing wasn't all that great but we had a good time. My daughter fed ducks and we enjoyed the mild weather for a November. Will go back when it's less hot and less cool.

Watching the sailboats on Joe Pool Lake can take the edge off the toughest day. My intent and expectation is to have a sailboat again and spend more time on the water.

The park was an excellent location for the family reunion. The pavilion was a nice size, we were right on the lake, near the bathrooms and playground. Parking was close by and the atmosphere and the cleanliness of the park was just perfect! We also was able to enjoy the concert that was out in the park, in a different... More
