Explore Lake Meredith!

Lake Meredith lies on the dry and windswept plains of the Texas Panhandle. The lake was created to supply water for 11 cities and to create recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, water-skiing, sailing, scuba diving, and swimming. The backcountry surrounding the lake provides areas for hunting, camping, horseback riding, and hiking.


Boating is a popular family activity at Lake Meredith. Thousands of visitors each year enjoy the refreshing water on the hot summer days. Complete boating regulations can be obtained at park headquarters or from a park ranger. For your safety, get a current weather forecast before boating.


Fishermen can enjoy angling for several different species, including walleye, crappie, bass, catfish, trout and more. Lake Meredith hosts several fishing tournaments each year. One of the most popular is the Small Fry Fishing Tournament, held in cooperation with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, which promotes the sport of fishing for children.


Game species found at Lake Meredith include whitetail and mule deer, dove, turkey, quail, duck, pheasant, and geese. All hunters are required to have a Texas State Hunting License. A Federal Duck Stamp is also required for those hunting migratory waterfowl.


Camping opportunities abound at Lake Meredith, whether you like designated campgrounds with tables, awnings, and grills, or backcountry areas that are more primitive. Campers may stay up to 14 days.
