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.
