All the Details

Lake Mineral Wells State Park consists of 3282.5 acres, encompassing Lake Mineral Wells. The City of Mineral Wells donated 1,095 land acres and the 646-acre lake to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1975. The U.S. Government transferred some of the remaining acreage from Fort Wolters Army Post to the State of Texas for use as parkland. The park was opened in July 1981. Lake Mineral Wells State Park is located along Rock Creek, a large tributary of the Brazos River. This area was an early home to several Native American tribes including the Comanche. Activities include camping; lake swimming (unsupervised); fishing; boating (boat, canoe, paddleboat rental - no skiing, jet skis, or tubing permitted); rock climbing (climbers and rappelers must check in at headquarters); mountain biking; equestrian camping, horseback riding (visitors must provide their own horses); and hiking. Trails may be closed during wet weather. Climbing is prohibited when the rock formations are wet (call the park to verify the climbing area is open if it has rained within 48 hours of your planned arrival). Information from the park's site
