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.

We stayed north at the Isle Du Bois part of the state park. Nice! Very clean! Very quiet. Next time we would stay at the State Park on the Ssouth side. It seemed more busy and active on the south side. We had a great stay! The trails are fantastic!!! #19

They have great concrete and dirt hiking trails at Johnson and Isle du Bois. There are also bike trails and equestrian trails. The interpretive trail (Lost Pines) at Isle du Bois unit is one of the best I've ever hiked and it's only 1/2 mile long, so almost anyone can do it. Just be sure to get a map at... More

We love this lake. We go boating often and during the week it isn't crowded at all. We also like to mountain bike here as well. Several different trails .

This park has a little of everything any outdoor enthusiast would love. They have challenging dirt trails perfect for running and mountain biking. The Isle du Bois branch was my favorite one. There are areas for horseback riding, water activities with several boat ramps, day picnic areas and campgrounds for overnight stays. Can't wait to go back for more running... More
