Lake Ray Roberts is a decent lake. It's well north of Dallas/Ft Worth and Denton. It takes up 29,000 acres of land between Sanger and Pilot Point. The lake was created when a tributary of the Trinity River was dammed up. The state park has three or four points around the lake. The Isle du Bois is probably the largest,... More

I wish I had a chance to stay longer at the park and make BBQ there since the park is worth an entire-day visit; I had not plenty of time so I just walked around for a couple of hours enjoying the view of the lake.

Beautiful park . Awesome sunset . We went for a very peaceful bike ride before left in the morning .The bath house was clean and spacious. This was my idea of perfect camping.

Friendly rangers give accurate directions to camping areas. You can choose your own camping spot, but get there early, because spots with lake views fill up early, and that was on a freezing January weekend! The ranger said that the park is very crowded, actually filled to capacity, on weekends, holidays, and in the summer. It was tidy and clean.... More

A large lake that does not have trees jutting up through the surface. Seems to be a popular destination for boaters and campers and has large beech with picnic area. Some sites are right on the lake and park is clean. One marina only which is a couple miles away that rents out a handful of pontoons.

Ray Roberts is very close to Denton making it quite accessible; however it's not really an escape from the grind. All the trails are paved and there a lot of cyclists. I really didn't feel like I was back in nature while walking on a sidewalk. To each their own, but this park is more for the cyclists than hikers.

This is a beautiful park, offering a swimming beach, boat launch, campsites - including some with horse corrals, a lounging ring and other equestrian facilities. Linked to a first class improved bike trail, it also ties to the Greenbelt Horse Trail that runs from US 380 to the north end of the lake over some 20+ miles of forested trails.... More

Went here on a Sat and camped that night. We stayed at Johnson branch location in the Juniper cove campsite. The area was clean and nicely shaded. There were several other camp sites with no shade so I would avoid if possible. The camping reservation system was new to us but I can break it down simply. Reserve online and... More

Beautiful lake. Breath taking views. The park and lake are gorgeous. You can walk for miles. Nice place for family outings. We saw fish jumping all afternoon. It was very peaceful afternoon.
