Beautiful state park with lots to do. Had fun teaching my nephew how to ride jet skies. The lake wasn’t crowded. We ate at the marina and the food was good.

No pay per fish. If you are in a Texas State Park you don't need a fishing license either. You do have to follow the bag limit for species of fish as outline in the Texas fish and game regulations.
