Return to Palo Duro Reservoir fishing page

This area is experiencing a drought which may affect fishing and boat ramp access. Use the phone numbers provided below to check ramp conditions.

The Palo Duro River Authority maintains three boat ramps on the reservoir. Two ramps are usable when the lake is full, and a third is available during low water periods only. Most of the shoreline is accessible to bank anglers. Some areas are ADA-accessible. Several picnic and camping areas are available, including two RV campgrounds with hookups. The authority charges an entry fee of $2.00/person and an additional $2.00 for use of boat ramps.
