Possum Kingdom is a gem of a camping destination. Initially we booked a spot in the premium section, but as soon as we saw it, we wanted to change. Fortunately for us, they had openings in one of the "water only" sections, and for $10, we were able to downgrade our reservation. The problem with the premium spots (for us)... More

I had this on a list of "Must do's" in Texas and I can't figure out why. It's a ways from everything and if you are looking for a place to camp, fish, swim and boat, this is your place. The entrance fee is only $4 for the day. If you are looking for a day trip and some great... More

This was our first visit to this state park. Having a new RV we wanted to experience a weekend getaway. the park is very remote and it takes a while to get there. Once you arrive, the views are spectacular. It was very quiet and peaceful here. There are hiking trails and possible canoe rentals. We did not know about... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times. It is very clean and rooms are spacious. Breakfast was good. The lady at the desk was very kind, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Low key with very little amenities surrounding the park. Perfect for night sky photography! It feels like youre driving nowhere going in but once at the park you feel welcome and safe. You get the best of both worlds. Youre out in the middle of nowhere but its its own little compound of people and amenities.

I havn't been outdoor camping in many, many years. I'm so happy I chose Possum Kingdom State Park for my first time in adulthood. It's an extremely beautiful area via a lake nestled between hills. Our campsite included amenities such as covered picnic tables, a ring fire pit with a restroom/ shower within walking distance . The onsite store is... More

Beautiful state park. We arrived on Thursday and there was only one camping site taken, but starting Friday late morning it started to fill up. By Saturday morning just about every site was occupied. We were by the lake and it was really relaxing. The only drawback with it being so full was the amount of smoke from all the... More

I enjoyed the view all the way from Ranger/Caddo and the winding roads from its main entrance.Beautiful lake park that is a great relaxing hideaway for families. The covered picnic tables are sparsely distributed in between the lake and the roadside parking area---all for free use after paying the entrance fee. Tip: Get a Texas State Park Pass to save...

We got to stay in a cabin. Everything was within walking distance. The swimming area was perfect. The fishing was excellent the park personnel were friendly. Watch out for the fire ants. They are pretty aggressive here.

Read the reviews, decided to go, a quietish spot, but very little to do. For a day trip, a little disappointing. Very little apart from the lake.
