Possum Kingdom Lake is a majestic lake along the Brazos River just 80 miles west of Fort Worth, Texas. This beautiful lake is famous for the huge cliffs that line the walls of the south end of the lake. Possum Kingdom has clear blue waters that are perfect for fishing or recreational boating. Scuba diving and snorkeling are also popular on this lake. Hiking and biking on the many trails that criss-cross the hills surrounding this lake can be a full weekend of fun.
There are two main park areas on the lake. Possum Kingdom State Park is on the west side of the lake and has some of the best camping you will find in all of Texas. The Brazos River Authority has several park and camping areas located on the east side of the lake on a peninsula that extends well into the lake.
