“Satisfied my kids craving for the "beach"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

We didn't plan a beach trip this year, so my kids compromised on a visit to Lake Grapevine, and they had a great time. The beach here is a bit gravely, but it appears clean. My kids enjoyed digging in the sand, gravel and all. There is a small roped-off area for swimming in the lake, and I think it went out to at least 8 feet deep, so it was decent swimming. Even though we went on a Saturday, it wasn't overly crowded - the $5 entrance fee probably keeps the volume down. The views are pretty. There's a good playground for the kids, and there are also boat rentals if you want to kayak. Lots of people bring awnings to set up their own shade on the beach. You can bring a picnic lunch.

“Great beach to swim!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We came at about 11am on the 4th of July and got a great parking spot. The beach is sandy and clean. There were kayak and canoe rentals available that were very reasonably priced and we had a blast!! There could have been more restrooms available and maybe some picnic tables or more shade available. Other than that it was a blast and I will be back!!!

“Camping in the Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

We just spent 3 days camping in a tent in Meadowmere Park, campsite #58. Great little campsite sheltered by trees on two sides, the beach appox. 100 yards down and only 20 feet from the roadside parking (you don't have to lug your gear too far). We were there Wed.- Fri., so not a lot of folks in the park or on the lake. There are no RV hook-ups or dump stations, just campsites. It was rather quiet and relaxing, except for the jet engines from DFW Airport. Although not loud, my wife kept thinking it was thunder!
As other raters/reviewers have said, wear water shoes!! The lake itself is about 10-12 feet low, creating lots of shoreline to explore, but also exposing a lot of glass and cans from boaters years ago. If you can, bring bikes. Lots of roads and trails in and around the Meadowmere area.
The front gate folks are extremely friendly and accommodating. They do sell bottled water and ice at the front gate. Even if you forget something, you're only 15 minutes away from grocery stores, Walmart and Target.
Campsites are $25 per night. Daytime visits are $10 per car/truck, $5 per motorcycle.

William, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your camping stay! We are working on shoreline clean up and appreciate your patience as we have never had this much exposure around the water. We hope you will camp again with us soon!

“outdoor summer fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

My husband and I visited with our 4 year old. We went with the intention of renting a kayak for the three of us. I am not sure if there is more than one vendor out there but the vendor advertised on Grapevine Lake's website only has one two person kayak with space in the middle for a duffer. The kayak was out so our LO played at the playground and walked through the water and had a really good time.
We will go back and I will definately take
-chairs with shade as there aren't any benches at the playground for parents to sit and watch their children (we sat on the "curb").
-Water shoes - i saw some glass and i saw pets so i imagine there is pet waste
-shade for the beach
-sunscreen
-insect repellent
-picnic blanket
-life jacket for our LO

Next time you are in the park stop by the gate house for your kayak rental. We have plenty of two seat kayaks available for you to take your little one out on the water. Sorry about the confusion with the other vendor. Also, if you want to be sure to get a covered picnic table we would be glad to help you reserve one. We look forward to helping your family make wonderful memories at the lake.

We look forward to seeing you this summer and don't forget we have sports equipment for you to borrow, that way, you can enjoy our horseshoe pits, disc golf and volleyball courts. Just ask our friendly park attendants (it's free)!
