Loyd Park on Joe Pool Lake

Loyd Park Camping

Experience the adventures of a nature get-a-way without venturing far from the metroplex. On the west shore of Joe Pool Lake, Loyd Park covers about 791 acres of native Texas landscape. Loyd Park is in a peaceful tree-filled setting right on the lake but is centrally located - camping is conveniently close to major DFW attractions. Individual campsites are large (avg 1000 sq ft.), and each one has a picnic table and pavilion, grill, fire ring, and more Texas tranquility than you can handle.
