The park offers swimming in a designated sandy beach area (no lifeguard on duty) on Wright Patman Lake, a nature trail and a hiking trail of five miles, water skiing, boating (canoe rentals are available at the park), and fishing. Wright Patman Lake is also a popular fishing spot. The reservoir covers 20,300 acres and has an average depth of 7.6 feet. There are 170 miles of shoreline. On shore, the activities include walking, nature study, hiking, camping, picnicking, or jogging along roads, trails or shorelines. Bicycling is popular along the hilly park and area roads.

The trail that I went on was poorly marked and I got lost. There was a lot of high water but the ranger had told me the trails were not under water. Not sure if that wasn't the case and that's why I lost the trail. I was basically just wandering in the woods.

Great trail. Some of it is currently under water due to floods. Burned off areas are growing back now and as a Texas State Park no fishing license (in state or out) is required to fish from th3 bank.

I did the "nature trail" @.8 miles it was nice. Still in recovery from a fire and some chainsaw grooming.

A pleasant walk. Be alert for wild pigs on this trail.
