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

Family stayed at Johnson Branch and loved it over Thanksgiving. Campsites are spacious and private. Showers and bathrooms are clean. The lake is beautiful and the hiking and biking trails were fabulous. We recommend it strongly. Can't wait to go back. Only downside is a fee per person/ per day. Rather pricey.

I took my two kids as well as various friends the past three weekends and really enjoyed our time out there. The facilities are nice, good amount of room between camp sites and plenty to do with the kids. We had one night with someone being too loud but they eventually piped down around 10:40. All in all, great location... More

We have had our little family-reunion campouts at various Texas State Parks for more than 20 years, and were shocked by the treatment we received from a ranger at Isle du Bois in Ray Roberts Lake State Park. We always book five campsites for our group of about 20 people, so we have a lot of room to spread out... More

For a Texas lake, Ray Roberts has some wide open areas as well as some protected coves where you can get out of the wind if need be...although lake levels are down, RR is still a good place to go!

We camped overnight at the Wild Plum primitive site. It was nice and kept space between the other sites. Only issue was we had to carry our gear a bit to get to it. Only half the path is paved. Lake is beautiful. Beach is very nice. We will return!

This is an oasis near the DFW area. Our party of 3 adults took an afternoon day trip to this state park on a Wednesday afternoon. The picnic area we enjoyed was covered and near a really nice beach. The water was perfect! We saw deer and roadrunners. The facilities were clean. However, I get what people are saying about... More
