Owner description: Scenic park great for camping, hiking, swimming and fishing.
Reviewed 26 August 2008

Ray Roberts Lake State Park is a pretty Texas park. The Isle du Bois section near Pilot Point has lots of campsites with shade and facilities (toilet, basins, showers) nearby. The campsites in the Hawthorn Campground are fine, though some are so close to water’s edge they can be affected by the water level.
The campsites in the Deer Ridge and the Quail Run campgrounds are preferable in particular those by the lake with their views of the lake and easy access. A large sandy beach is good for sunning and swimming and has picnic tables. At the beach, a camp store is open in season with limited basic supplies. A two mile loop hiking trail provides a nice walk through the woods. A big launch area provides access for boats and parking for vehicles with trailers.
The Lantana Lodge’s restaurant has a nice view of the lake and decent food. The lodge is in another section of the park (Jordon) which requires a drive out of Isle du Bois and through Pilot Point to get to. The motel style rooms there are large and attractively furnished. Some have views of the lake.
Also nearby is the Greenbelt Trail which begins below the Ray Roberts Dam. It's an easy trail that goes for six miles, ending just above Lewisville Lake.

I love going fishing at Lake Ray Roberts! It's ver pretty and I have been going there for a long time. I like to fish at the back of the peir. The cropie and bass are great! It is a great place for families to go. I have never had a problem.

This is a very nice State Park. Close to Gainsville outlet stores & Winstar Casino. There was a beautiful sunset when we were there.
