BOATER ADVISORY: Zebra mussels have invaded this reservoir! CLEAN, DRAIN AND DRY your boat, trailer, livewells/bait buckets, and other gear before traveling to another water body. Draining water is required by law and possession and transport of zebra mussels is illegal.

Some parks and boat ramps are closed due to flood damage. Check the Army Corps of Engineers closure report for status updates.

Hords Creek Lake offers excellent camping, picnicking, and fishing facilities. Some of the fishing areas are ADA-accessible. Fees are required to launch a boat. All major coves have speed limit restrictions so anglers can better enjoy sportfishing. Shore fishing access is excellent: in addition to three fishing piers, almost the entire shoreline is open to bank anglers. There are fish-cleaning stations, swimming beaches, and group camping facilities. No marina or boat rental facilities are located on the lake.
