Ray Roberts Lake State Park

Natural Playground

Escape the bustle of the city and get back to nature just an hour north of the DFW Metroplex. Come play at Ray Roberts Lake State Park for the day or the weekend!

Things to Do

On land, you can camp, hike, bike, ride your horse, rollerblade, geocache or go backpacking. On the water, you can swim at one of our beach areas (no lifeguards on duty), paddle, or wet a hook in our kids’ fishing pond or the lake. Or enjoy quieter pursuits:  photography, nature watching, or simply relaxing!

Stay at one of our many campsites or reserve a room at Lantana Resort. Hold your next group event here; we have group walk-in campsites, four picnic pavilions overlooking the lake, and meeting rooms at Lantana Resort.

Fish the 29,000-acre Ray Roberts Lake. Anglers catch largemouth bass, crappie, white bass and catfish here. The current lake record for largemouth bass is 14.07 pounds. We have boat ramps, a marina, a fishing pier and fish cleaning stations. Remember, you can fish from the shore or a pier in a state park without a fishing license!

Explore our trails. The 20-mile multiuse Greenbelt Corridor runs from the Ray Roberts Dam to Lake Lewisville, along the Elm Fork Branch of the Trinity River. Horse riders can use 12 miles of the trail, while 10 miles are for hike and bike use only. Johnson Branch and Isle du Bois have multiuse trails, some of which are paved.

Ray Roberts Lake State Park has nine units. Three are developed:  Johnson Branch, Isle du Bois and the Greenbelt Corridor. Six satellite units (see sidebar, under hours) have boat ramps. The full-service Lake Ray Roberts Marina is at the Sanger unit; Lantana Resort is at the Jordan unit.
