I was not surprised when I read Molly's review about her experience with the police at Ray Roberts. I live about 30 minutes away and camp here often. I have also been harassed several times. The first time was at Johnson Branch and there was not another camper within 100 yards of us. The officer approached our campsite in the... More

I have supported Texas State Parks for many years, and have been coming to Isle Du Bois for over 15 years. After our experience this weekend I will never step foot onto another park as long as I live in Texas. My husband and I, invited our friends to come camp with us. The only tent sites available were in... More

Shade trees along the shore and campgrounds make this an ideal spot for an easy getaway from Dallas or Ft. Worth. If not camping, make it a day trip to hike paved or primitive trails, bring the horses for trail riding, or just bring the boat or the swimsuit for cool clear water sports.

Love this place. Great for kids, bike rides, Geocaching all over the park, away from crowds, and great RV sites. If you want more open area, go to the swim area, you can use their playground, play games and enjoy a family picnic day.

We were camping in a tent in Isle du Bois Unit May 4 and 5. The nature is really wonderful there. We had a view on the lake and it was really magnificent. On our tent site, there was a Northern cardinal always looking at himself in our car's side mirror and it was really peculiar (and beautiful) to see!... More

Perfect swimming destination for the whole family. The lake was clean and clear with a sandy bottom! I felt like we were at the ocean without the rip current, jelly fish and salt. Plenty of picnic tables, covered areas, trees, green grass, bath houses w/ showers and playgrounds. For a day trip this was perfect. The shallow area is large... More

Good place to take the RV. Great hiking/mountain bike trail. My boys loved the kids fish pond and the swimming beach. Great for a weekend.

My family went camping this weekend with a few other cub scout families. While we we were around the campfire, my wife went into the tent to get something. My four year old son went looking for her and called out "Momma, where are you?". We got him and told him to be quiet because other people were sleeping. About... More
