I found the swim beach to be excellent and like the family atmosphere. There were several posts about the police (listed above) but i find it odd that any one would complain about police enforcing a clearly well documented rule. There are signs all over the park that state no alcohol. They don't say no alcohol unless you just want a glass or two of wine with your wife. Come on folks, lets get real. You cant have it both ways. This is a dry lake and one of the few dry lakes in Texas. so if you go to Ray Roberts be aware. A little alcohol is like being a little pregnant. You are either violating park policy or you are not. If you want to drink, then you can go to other lakes where it is permitted, but let's nor bash the police for doing their job.

We got the year pass, and that's the only thing that makes it worth it. It's too hot to fo the trails and there isn't much else to do other than swim. Busy on weekends and holidays. Not worth $7 a person, though!

Planned a long weekend at Ray Roberts, First time to stay there and will be last!! We camp with our horses, No state park camp grounds ever provide electric for horse camping area. I have a trailer with a weekend pkg which includes a generator that runs quieter than most (can sit outside and talk without being annoyed or a need to speak louder to be heard over the noise) Park Ranger was a lil over zealous came by 3 times before 10 pm we arrived at 5. He imformed us that we could not run our generator after 10pm Seriously.... it was our friends next to us and 1 other camper 5 sites down in the entire horse camp area.We were the only ones with horses. He came by several times during the night shining his headlights into our campsite. It is not stated anywhere that you cannot run generators after 10pm in any Park rules when making reservations. They provide electric to other campers in the park where they are allowed to bring their pets as long as they are on a leash. Well my pet that weighs 1000 lbs. is always on a leash!!!! And better mannered than most dogs. If you are going to have a rule of no generators then you should provide electric hookups to all who would want them!!! And not discriminate against the horse owner who wants to have a fun weekend away. Needless to say packed up and left!!! unless its a cooler month which is very few here in Texas or you only want to camp in a tent Don't waste your time The trail wasn't really all that great either.. Greatly disappointed and total waste of my money
