Hitting the water this time of year is not uncommon and it's always super refreshing. The best thing about splashing into the water is all the great Texas views you can get from the beautiful bodies of water around the state. Lake Meredith in North Texas offers visitors the chance to take a dip in the plains of Texas with breathtaking cliff views like no other.
The lake is hidden behind hills and is filled with stunning coves. Visitors can swim in the lake, hike, and camp, which means you'll likely never be bored. There are boat ramps you can use on the lake and if you don't have your own, there are shops around the lake that will gladly rent one out to you. You won't have to pay a mooring fee so all you have to do is hit the water!
Camping is conducted on a first-come-first-serve basis and you'll have plenty of options to get a gorgeous view. You can choose to stay at one of the outlook points or on the shore, closer to the water. On the offchance that you choose to do a little bit of glamping there are 10 RV camping sites as well, available for a fee. Wild camping at the park is free any time of year.
The park is open all day, year round. Park Headquarters are open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, closed on holidays.
