The drinking water at the park is non-potable due to a high salt content.  Non-potable water, suitable for bathing, washing, and cleaning, is available at campsites, restrooms and showers. Visitors must bring their own water for consumption.


Possum Kingdom State Park, west of Mineral Wells in Palo Pinto County, is 1,528.7 acres adjacent to Possum Kingdom Lake. Some of the rock facilities at the park were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1940s. The area was acquired by deed from the Brazos River Authority in 1940, and opened to the public in 1950.
