I love to hike but never get to enough because Keltin and I keep ourselves so busy. Well last weekend we had a Sunday free and headed out to Lake Ray Roberts State Park. We picked this location for our hike for a couple of reasons: drive time and that it was a place we hadn’t visited before.
Also, a family friend of ours wrote a book on called Best Tent Camping: Texas. Even though we weren’t looking to camp the book was helpful in that it had the address and the entree fees for the park along with simple directions plus a host of other information like good local places to eat. Could we have gotten all this online, yes but its nice to have it all on one convent page.
Our 5 mile hike along the Dogwood Creek Trail wasn’t anything crazy beautiful but it was so nice just to be outside on the trail. Bear was happy to sniff and mark everything he could and Keltin and were glad just to be in nature.
In case you want to visit:
- Cost to get in is $7 per adult
- They have a ton of tent camping spots, some have a view of the water.
- Tent sites have a picnic tables and grills
- They have a boat ramp at the park
- There is a playground at the end of the main road near the lake.
- This is a popular spot for mountain bikers and the park contains a number of trails.
When you are out in nature please leave it better than you found it. It makes me sad to see trash along the trail and I have taken to picking it up. Also, don’t forget to submit your story to my TRAVEL MOMENTS CONTEST.
