My family enjoys lake Meredith many times throughout the summer. We have a great time boating, playing on the jet ski, and fishing.

Part of our summer vacation must include swimming. With Alibates monument down the road, we had to swing by and get wet. Water was cool, swim area was clean and safe, staff in area were knowledgeable and respectful. Great get away in North Texas.
