Possum Kingdom State Park is on the south/west side of the lake. We were there in the middle of June 2011. The temperature each day was about 105. It was very uncomfortable during the day. Whatever you wanted to do, it needed to be done in the morning before it got too hot. The whitetail deer are plentiful in this area, and are a pleasure to watch.
