Possum Kingdom Lake has over 18,000 acres of water and 310 miles of shoreline making it a favorite spot for fishermen throughout the southwest. The rocky bluffs and underwater ledges with aquatic vegetation makes this lake a diverse habitat for the many species of fish including bass, crappie, channel, blue, and flathead catfish.

Possum Kingdom State Park


Located in the rugged canyons of Palo Pinto adjacent to Possum Kingdom Lake and the Brazos River Valley, this state park is home to some of the best camping in the state. Park goers enjoy watching the white-tailed deer graze, participating in the some of the best fishing in the southwest, and taking the boat out for some scuba diving and snorkeling. Listed as one of the best places to stay in Possum Kingdom for visitors, many park goers will stay overnight in one of the air-conditioned cabins while others chose to enjoy nature at by renting a water and electric camp site.

Lush Resort


Another favorite of mine is the Lush Resort. Also, listed as a great place to stay for a visit, many Possum Kingdom residents enjoy coming here to just relax and have a good time. The bar and grill offers breathtaking views of the lake and is the perfect place to enjoy some great food and let your worries drift away. Many will schedule time in the spa for a massage while others like spending their time in the lakefront swimming pool.
