Lake Whitney State Park, Texas
CAMPSITE #36 ~ Lake Whitney State Park
Don’t forget to bring your boat or airplane!
Lake Whitney State Park has its own boat ramp and runway for small planes!
TRAVEL TIPS & PHOTOS:
- Lake Whitney State Park is located on the shore of Lake Whitney, and very popular with fisherman. It includes a nice boat ramp with courtesy dock.
- If you don’t have a boat, bring your plane! There is actually a small runway in the park (check with ranger station first).
- You can also park your boat with your camper at most sites.
Plenty of room for two vehicles, trailer, and boat!
- Mrs. Padilly’s campsite was #36 in the Horseshoe Camping Loop. This loop is not close to the water, but does provide full hook-ups.

- Our site had lots of elbow room to set up camp, including fire pit, and a concrete picnic table on slab.
- There are some nice waterfront RV sites, but they only have water and electric (such as this site, #103).
- Our campsite was big enough for two vehicles; one pulling our Shasta, and the other pulling our C-Dory. Since we camped during the work week, when crowds are lower, we were able to get this big site, which normally would be used for bigger trailers/motorhomes.
- This is a big weekend destination for the Dallas – Ft. Worth area, so plan beforehand if you want a bigger pull-true.
“Howdy!” from Miss Roxie
- Wildlife abound at this park, especially dear. We had a band of wild turkeys cut through our campsite. And, even though our campsite is located under a canopy of trees, we were still treated to a nice sunset.
- Do you like to camp in a tent? This park has some of the best tent sites we have seen — and either on or near the water!
- There are only two small hiking trails at this park – the focus is the water.
- Bathrooms are a bit old, but they look like they are in the process of putting in new ones. We saw one new bathroom under construction near the tent camping sites, and it looks like it will include AC.
- We totally enjoyed our stay here, and especially the time we spent boating on the lake.
