Lake Murray State Park is a Texas Outside favorite because of the clear water, good coves for swimming/fishing/skiing, excellent water/electricity sites right on the water, and lots of things to do within the Park. The Lake and State Park were built by the Civilian Conservation and Works Progress Administration and completed in 1937. It remains the ??State's largest park at over 12,496 acres and the lake has over 150 miles of shoreline and very clear blue water. Read the review of Lake Murray.
Water and electricity sites are available in Cedar Cove, Tipps Point, Buzzards Roost, Marietta Landing, and Martins Landing. There are some great sites on the water and most of the sites are clean, spacious, level, and have tables, grills, and a fire pit.
Each of the camping areas include boat ramps (some are pretty narrow, so be careful), dump stations, restrooms and showers. Some include a fishing pier, paved nature trail, hiking/biking trails, playground equipment, and a swimming beach.
The Lodge at the State Park has 80 rooms and plenty to offer including: tennis, volleyball, horseshoes, a restaurant, recreation room, 9 hole disc golf course, swimming pool, miniature golf, boat rentals, basketball court, and more. There are also 81 cabins, some of which are within 100 yards of the water, for rent. The cabins are not luxurious but practical and good for family fun.
There are some very cool Bed & Berth Villas for rent that sleep 8 to 12 people. These 2 bedroom villas are floating in the water on a small and pretty cove – check them out and find enough people to rent all three of them.
