Angler fishing at sunset in the lake

Visit Purtis Creek State Park for its good fish­ing and shady camp­sites. Park planners designed the unique 355-acre lake specifically for fishing.

Fish for plentiful largemouth bass; these are catch-and-release only. Large catfish and crappie are abundant; you can take these catches home for dinner.
