Fishing, Family & Fun
Need to get away? Take a short road trip from DFW or Waco to the shores of Lake Whitney. You’ll find clear water, plenty of campsites, and a great place to relax with the family.
Things to Do
We offer water activities galore, from fishing and swimming to boating and skiing. On shore, you can explore the trails, see the stars, try geocaching, or set up camp.
A wide variety of wildlife lives in the park. Watch for deer, raccoons, snakes, armadillos and opossums. Wild turkeys and bald eagles have also been sighted here.
Fish for largemouth, striped and white bass, or bring home a prize blue catfish. Get detailed fishing and lake information for Lake Whitney.
The park has a boat ramp and a fish cleaning shelter. We also loan fishing gear for use in the park. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore in a state park.
We hold an annual youth fishing tournament on the first Saturday in June.
Hiking and Biking
Explore our trails, or get in your steps on park roads. All trails are open to hikers and bikers.
Bass Fishing and More . . .
Our 355-acre lake is a bass fishing destination, but fishing is not all we offer. Come to swim, canoe, camp, explore nature or relax. We’re just an hour southeast of Dallas.
Things to Do
You’ll find plenty to do at Purtis Creek State Park. Paddle a kayak or canoe, hike and bike, camp, geocache and picnic. Rent our picnic pavilion for your next gathering.
Our lake features catch-and-release largemouth bass, as well as catfish and crappie that you can take home. We have fishing piers, fish cleaning stations and boat ramps.
Hike and bike
Tackle the 4.1-mile Wolfpen Hike and Bike Trail. The 1.7-mile Beaver Slide Nature Path takes you along the lakeshore. Or explore the short, easy Solar Trail along the dam.
Blue Water & Scenic Shores
How long since you’ve been to the lake? Grab your family, fishing pole and swimsuit and head for the clear blue water and striking scenery at Possum Kingdom State Park. We’re just an hour west of the DFW Metroplex.
Things to Do
