Lots of things to do here. Boating. Camping. Swimming. This Lake is really pretty. Just make sure if you are not a strong swimmer to wear a life jacket. It has a strong under tow.

The lake was nice and the weather was beautiful! However, we pretty much went around the whole lake looking for a place to fish off the land. We ended up fishing at the boat ramp, per the attendants at one of the parks.

Great Lake always fun. Plenty to do on and off the water. In the spring the white bass fishing is excellent.

Whether you're fishing on the shore, riding on a boat, or jumping off the rocks, this is definitely a good place to be when that Texas summer heat rolls around.
