Lake Mineral Wells State Park & Trailway

100 Park Road 71

Lake Mineral Wells State Park sits along Rock Creek, a large tributary of the Brazos River. This area was an early home to several Native American tribes, including the Comanche.

Settlers began arriving in the early 1850s, and intermittent warfare occurred until the late 1870s. Rugged terrain and lush native grasses attracted many early-day ranchers to this area, including Charles Goodnight, Oliver Loving and C. C. Slaughter, who ran large herds of Longhorn cattle. Ranching continues to be an economic mainstay of this area.

What a beautiful park! Went to have a nice picnic outing. The park has plenty of picnic tables with grills next to them. The bathrooms are very clean. Hiking the challenging "Red" trail was awesome. The views of the lake are stunning. If you're able to, I highly suggest trying to go repelling and or mountain climbing. Overall, this is one of my favorite Texas state parks. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

Was a great place to go kayaking up the creek, we traveled so far up the creek that Google Map put me in the middle of a cow pasture no water detected. But we were still following the creek, some five miles out of the park. All of the Park Rangers were of a great help, it was easy to launch our craft from the shallows. One person in our party caught a 16" bass in the creeks shallow water, but mostly leisurely paddled up the creek till dusk.

I stayed at the screen shelter area, it was a really awesome place. Behind it was a trailway that's connected to all shelters, a fishing pier and a maybe boarding dock. The bathrooms are air conditioned. The shelters area hot during really HOT days, best bring a Huge fan to cool down and tent to sleep at. The rock climbing wall it nice and remember to bring your own equipment. In all I will come back again in cooler temperature days.

This was our 1st SSPG Youth Camping trip here and we all enjoyed ourselves so much that the kids didn't want to leave. We had two groups, the boys were at the Plateau Campsite while the girls and I were at the Post Oaks Campsite. We will DEFINITELY be returning. Those that chickened out regretted they when they saw the videos and pictures of all the fun activities and great food we had.
