We really enjoyed our camping weekend here. The concrete trails were very nice for the kids to ride their bikes on and our campsite was very shady and level. Not all the camp sites have shade so drive around and look before picking your site. The trails have tons of flora and fauna to look at and made for a... More

We went to do some hiking. Some of the DORBA trails were still closed due to down trees. They have both wide concrete trails suitable for strollers or wheelchairs as well as dirt trails which can get muddy.

Boogie on up to Lake Ray Roberts State Park. Spring is in the air, on the trees, flowers, you get it. Always a great place to unwind from the urban blahs, but even better now that winter has lost it's pall over the area. Bluebonnets even!

This was our first time to Ray Roberts Lake State Park. The camp ground is very clean and has great trails for walking, hiking, and bikes. They have a really nice 2.2 like trail on a wide concrete path that a wheelchair could go on. Pilot Point is right by, and you can see all the race horse ranches. Lots... More

There is a good playground if you have children and nice beach. The picnic area is clean and in good condition. The restrooms are ok also. The lake view is good from the picnic area.

Lake Ray Roberts is a decent lake. It's well north of Dallas/Ft Worth and Denton. It takes up 29,000 acres of land between Sanger and Pilot Point. The lake was created when a tributary of the Trinity River was dammed up. The state park has three or four points around the lake. The Isle du Bois is probably the largest,... More

I wish I had a chance to stay longer at the park and make BBQ there since the park is worth an entire-day visit; I had not plenty of time so I just walked around for a couple of hours enjoying the view of the lake.

Beautiful park . Awesome sunset . We went for a very peaceful bike ride before left in the morning .The bath house was clean and spacious. This was my idea of perfect camping.

Friendly rangers give accurate directions to camping areas. You can choose your own camping spot, but get there early, because spots with lake views fill up early, and that was on a freezing January weekend! The ranger said that the park is very crowded, actually filled to capacity, on weekends, holidays, and in the summer. It was tidy and clean.... More

A large lake that does not have trees jutting up through the surface. Seems to be a popular destination for boaters and campers and has large beech with picnic area. Some sites are right on the lake and park is clean. One marina only which is a couple miles away that rents out a handful of pontoons.
