Recreation at Wright Patman Lake

Wright Patman Lake hosts a wide variety of recreational activities to allow our visitors to get out and enjoy the beautiful Piney Woods. Activities include camping, swimming, boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, picnicing and wildlife viewing. We want to encourage our visitors to come see what Wright Patman Lake has to offer, but remember to protect and preserve our facilities for future generations.
