Possum Kingdom State Park

We left Haskell, Texas on Sunday, May 7. We had reservations in the DFW area on Tuesday, May 9, so we needed some place to stay for two nights. About half way in between is Possum Kingdom lake. Kim and I had been to the lake before, but it had been many years. Neither one of us remember being to the State Park. We still have some time left on our Texas State Park Pass, so it made sense to make a stop for a couple of nights.

We had our pick of the premium sites that sit right on the lake. We took site #8. We chose a premium site because the person in the office told us the W/E sites are all very tight and had many branches over hanging. I walked that loop the next day and am glad we chose to stay in one of these sites. We had great Verizon cell signal and no OTA TV.

I have had some family members ask why I take so many pictures of our rig. This is not a picture of our rig, it is the campsite and our view. We also love to see our home in so many different places.

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset that first night.

The water is crystal clear. I tried to do some fishing from the bank and did not have any catches on a spinner, but a number of good hits and misses. This lake is known for trophy stripped bass and black bass. It was windy most of the time we were there, so I did not get the Sea Eagle out to do some fishing out on the lake. I did get in the lake, but it was a little cold to stay in very long. I would estimate the water temp at about 70 degrees.

On Monday, I took a long walk around the campground. I ended up with about 4 miles. It is a beautiful area with nice rock formations and views of the lake.

There was a large Prickly Pear Cactus near our site that was in full bloom. It was beautiful.

This was just a quick entry to keep up the blog. We left Possum Kingdom on May 9 and drove the last 100 miles to Benbrook, Texas. My next entries will be all about seeing the grandkids after almost 7 months on the road and a family wedding. I think by niece Alisha was the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. I took a ton of pictures.


  1. Nice looking lake. Bummer no fish. Sure looked like a nice place to sink some bait off those rocks. We didn't have any luck either in Arkansas. All those storms and flooding kind of killed the fishing as well.
