We drove up to the parking area here from our cabin. We then walked down to the lake with the dog, not for people with mobility issues. There is a place a little further down with benches and a nice view for people with physical...More

We were pleasantly surprised with this little park. There is alot of parking, quite a few very easy hiking trails but what is nice is that you can get right on shore and walk the part of the lake from the trails. Sometimes you cant...More

The park provides some nice views of the lake if you are willing to walk along the trails. You can also stroll along the waters edge. There is some trash on the trails and along the waters edge left by knuckle heads. If you have...More

The website says it open on Sunday at 630 am. Family and arrived at 730 and the gates are closed at both entrances, really upsetting after an hour and a half drive to get here.

Nice view of the dam and lake. Park benches set up and trails down to the water and easy walking on the dam. So peaceful and relaxing to watch the sun set over the lake!

Have you ever noticed how some people are easier to draw out if they’re physically active? Well that’s the case in our family, and for honest heart to heart chats - this is a great place. You’re outside and for the most part it’s pretty...More

Phenomenal views that we weren’t expecting driving up. Trails, facilities and history on the 2002 flood. A nice time to visit during more of the off season

I believe this location would hold that number of people. I would contact them directly and ask your question.

Yes there are. The Corps of Engineers has several parks with campgrounds around the lake. There are also commercial cabins around the lake.

Which areas of Dallas should tourists stay out of? (6 Replies)
Hey DFW residents. I mentioned in two previous Tripadvisor threads that I'm headed to Dallas this November. I'm flying into Love Field, staying at the Love Field Wyndham, and using the DART light rail to get me around. I'll be parking my rental car at the Inwood/Love Field DART station, and riding the DART from there. Are Victory Park, West End, and the Reunion District safe areas to walk around? What about Trinity Overlook Park? I heard South Dallas is pretty bad. Please inform...More

When people mention South Dallas as an area to avoid is it parts of South Dallas not the whole, and it is not so much within the city proper. Most of the areas you describe are fine with the caveat that any part of the city may become unsafe at any moment due to whoever may be in the area, as is true of all cities. If you are normally city smart and know how to be safe, then you should be just fine.

Overlook Area for a Tourist (3 Replies)
Hello! My husband and I will be coming out to Portland for a couple of days around Labor Day. We've been looking at Air B&Bs in the area, targeting ones that look to be close to public transit. We'd prefer to stay in a neighborhood area rather than downtown. We will have a car (as we are doing some other traveling around the West Coast), but we'd prefer to use public transit or walk while in Portland. I've found some nice looking air B&B rentals in the area North/Northeast of downtown...More

Overlook is not an area that is on many peoples radar, much less for visitors. There really isn't anything wrong with it, but it just doesn't have much for visitors. We were married in that area, so am not against it in general, but for a new visitor that is not where I would suggest. Look to either the downtown/NW 23rd areas, or on the east side around Alberta, Irvington, or Hawthorne. These areas will give you a better feel for what Portland has to offer, as well as will put you within...More
