Practice social distancing even when outdoors.

Please follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Some fishing access points are closed. As always, a valid fishing license is required and you must follow Texas fishing regulations, which can be found in the Outdoor Annual.

Purtis Creek State Park Lake

Public Access Facilities

Return to Purtis Creek fishing page

A boat ramp is provided in Purtis Creek State Park, along with two lighted, wheelchair-accessible fishing piers. A $5/day fee is required to put an object (a boat, tube, float, etc.) on the lake. Due to the small size of the lake, a 50-boat limit is in effect with a wake/speed restriction. Once the 50-boat limit has been reached on the lake, waiting boats may enter as other boats leave. Campsites and bank fishing are also available in the park. For more details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below.
