Lake Meredith National Recreation Area

Like an oasis in the desert, Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is a welcome surprise amid the parched, windy plains of the Texas Panhandle.
 
Created by the Sanford Dam on the Canadian River, Lake Meredith provides fresh water for 11 surrounding communities. It also offers a wide variety of recreational activities, on and off the water.

Close your eyes, and you can feel the cool breeze as your boat skips across this pristine reservoir. Cast your line, and you can already smell dinner cooking over the fire. What will it be tonight? Catfish? Rainbow trout? Crappie? Large mouth bass?

Landlubbers can ride horseback through Plum Creek or McBride, or zoom through Blue Creek and Rosita Flats on a motorbike. Miles of trails and dry creekbeds provide hours of off-road excitement.

At night, pitch your tent on the bluff at Fritch Fortress or by the lakeshore at Harbor Bay. Once the sun sets, the sky fills with stars that find their twins in the surface of the lake.

Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is a magnet for families seeking fun in the open air.
