We spent the day fishing and enjoying the park. Fish were not biting but we enjoyed it anyway. The water flowing across the road was special for the kids

A beautiful and lovely park. It was a little warm but the views are spectacular. Mineral Wells has continued to be a great little getaway. Now off to Garrett’s Store.

Campsites for every need, near the lake or opposite, but within view. Bathroom showers lack in privacy to some degree. Nice lake if you’re a lake goer. A nice swimming area. Canoe and kayak rentals. Lots of hiking trails. Best of all— the rock climbing...More

What a really cool park! A great lake with an unusual dam you can drive across (and must to see half the park). Really friendly staff in the bait shop - they were knowledgeable about bait and the best place to fish. Unfortunately we'd only...More

I would definitely recommend this camp ground that accommodates RV’s Tents and Shelters (limited). Hook ups for water, electricity (50 and 30 amp) no sewer so you are using the dump stations, if you like hiking or rock repelling this park is for you.
