CEDAR HILL STATE PARK
Relax by the lake, tour an old Texas farm, or explore our rugged limestone hills and rare prairie pockets. Though were just a short drive from the DFW Metroplex, it feels like youre a world away from the city.
Camp at one of 350 developed campsites, all near restrooms with hot showers. All sites have water and electricity 150 have sewer hookups, too. Several sites are ADA-accessible. Or hike to a primitive campsite, if trails are open.
There is a gravel swimming beach the swim beach is closed until 2022 with picnic tables and grills nearby. A playground and restrooms are next to the beach.
Fish the 7,500-acre Joe Pool Lake for largemouth black bass, crappie and catfish. We have two lighted fishing jetties and a perch pond for kids. We also have two four-lane boat ramps and lighted boat trailer parking. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore or pier in a state park.
