very nice park

One of the nicest lake parks I've been too. Entry fee is required, but can fish without a Tx license while in the park. Very clean and has concrete walking and bike trails... read more

I'll admit the title of my review is a bit sarcastic. North Texas is typically hot and dry in the month of July, and I was confident the trails would be fine last weekend, as we haven't seen a lot of rain since June. This region received an all-time record amount of rainfall of nearly 17 inches in May, 2015.... More

We take our boat here all the time!! Great lake! Even on busy days, you still have room on the lake to do all water sports or just hang out. Camping is beautiful also.

Great beach for kids and swimming. Usually very windy. Our large umbrella blew down the beach at one point, surprised all of our guest beach goers. Make sure you anchor whatever shelter you use. The hiking and bike trails are great. We live locally and use Ray Roberts as our staycation destination.

My wife and i stayed at this park in a small camper on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The sites were nice but i perfer to get my camper further into the trees. The parking pads were mostly short so the camper was closer to the road than I like. Behind the pad was the fire ring, table, and tent pad.... More

They have a resort there called Lantana Resort which had beautiful grounds and hotel. Our son had his wedding there and it was beautiful. Very friendly staff and wonderful views of the grounds and lake.

One of the nicest lake parks I've been too. Entry fee is required, but can fish without a Tx license while in the park. Very clean and has concrete walking and bike trails. Showers and RV park is above average with full hookups.

We've stayed at both Isle Du Bois and Johnson Branch and they're both some of the best State Park camping spots around. They're quiet, heavily treed, and have excellent (but few) restroom and shower facilities. (Be sure to ask for a spot close to the potty if you're tent camping.... It can be quite a hike through the woods if... More

Stayed two nights in early February. Although I had made a reservation it wasn't needed. If traveling during the summer months it would be recommended. If you plan on staying in Texas State Parks more than ten nights it would save money by purchasing an annual pass for $70 per person as Daily Fees are $7 / day / person.... More

Beautiful state park. The hike and bike trails stood out for us. They have some trails that are fully paved allowing the use of any bike or you can mountain bike on the trails that are alo used for hiking and, in some parts, equestrian use. There were over 20 miles of trails which can keep you occupied for hours... More
