Possum Kingdom State Park is on the southwest shore of Possum Kingdom Lake near Caddo, Texas. The park is nestled in the Palo Pinto mountains. The lake is one of the finest in Texas with the clearest water of any lake in the state. The park was the last CCC built park in Texas. Nice hiking trails. Wildlife abound. Great swimming.

Very remote park, the closest town, Graham, is 30 miles away. The park has a well stocked park store.

There are 20 sites in the premium section with 50A electric and water. Many sites on the lake. Only 10 sites can accommodate a 30'+ RV. The water and electric section of the park has 40 sites. Best suited for tents and RV's under 20'. If you have a large RV you should arrive before Friday for best site selection.

We were in site 17 with a great view and access to the lake. We will return. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older, somewhat tired Texas State Park that hasn't been properly maintained for sometime. The beach area was poorly kept with litter, pet droppings, and tall grass. Our first campsite had a damaged power connection and so we moved to another site. The Park seemed popular in that all the lakefront campsites were booked weeks and months in advance. The area has not recovered from years of drought and several large fires. The actual lake is probably among the best you'll find in this part of Texas. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This Park is some isolated and would be a longer drive to any of the smaller towns or cities in the area. The Park offers canoe rentals and has 2-3 swimming areas.

Nice clean campground on the lake. Only down side was that it is 30 miles to town. There is a marina and camp store on site. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Plenty of cedar trees that, if not the prettiest tree, still provide shade. And the kids loved hiking up the "mountain." The premium sites are suggested for vehicles over 20', but we were able to fit our 31' FW in the non-premium sites and liked the scenery much better. We hiked, biked, boated, and a nondenominational ministry group had games for the kids one afternoon. We've already reserved for next year. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our very first experience at camping in a State Park. We have already made reservations to return in July. The staff was wonderful, the store owners very friendly and accommodating. Our campsite (#13) was shady, level, free from fireants, waterfront, and just a great experience all around. We hiked two days of the three that we stayed. Restrooms were very clean with hot showers. We will be staying here often. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Tent Trailer.

My kids loved this place! There's hiking trails, a nice camp store, boat rentals and great fishing from the bank. Our site was somewhat difficult to get into. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed our visit here. This lake is in a swamp type area with moss on the trees and plenty to see. We had a great time and the park has been recently renovated. Unfortunately it was 100+ degrees, so we did not get to spend much outdoor time in the afternoon. There is a tour boat at the park that tours at 10am, 12pm , 2pm and 4pm for $15 per adult and $13 for children. This is the 4th state park we have visited in the last 6 weeks and have yet to be dissapointed. We camped at Possum Kingdom State Park in a Travel Trailer.
