Owner description: Beautiful park located in the heart of the Palo Pinto Mountains.
Reviewed June 2, 2009

Possum Kingdom State Park is a great park. We just hiked trails for the day, but it does take awhile to get to....even when AT the lake. We came from the East side of the lake, and it took about 35 min to drive to the park. If we had a boat, we would have been there in 3 min. Schedule accordingly.

The lake itself is really nice. Very pretty and deep. Great fishing, great for exploring all the coves and inlets too! You can rent boats or jetskis at numerous places around the lake.

Other things to do are the Hike & Bike trails. Take time to do the hikes with the scenic overlooks - gorgeous! Also, there are Brazos River Authority Public Access Areas - they charge $3/day p.p. on weekends only. These Areas are VERY well maintained, each little 'site' has it's own covered/shaded picnic table, a grill, and nearly all have beach access to the water. Really worth $3/day (or FREE Mon-Fri) to have a great shaded place on the water to relax or fish. Also, the Areas have bathrooms and showers.

We stayed at Golden Cove bungalows, at it was just the cutest ever. The bungalows and the grounds have all been refurbished and it's really nice. They rent watercraft too. Our rented jetski had 3 total hours on it - brand new! The manager (Michelle) is the ultimate multitasker and such a neat lady.
