The campsites at Choke Canyon are lakeside living at its best -- or, at least, simplest. The 40 campsites at the north end of the park come with water and electric hookups, plus picnic tables and a fire ring or grill. There’s also 16 primitive campsites, with a restroom and running water nearby, located on the east side of the park. Bonus? These sites are right next to the boat ramp. ###

Camped here in early spring on a spur of the moment fishing trip. Found the park to be spacious, quiet and perfect for paddling and catching fish. No swimming... we did see a good sized gator sunning himself... ! but great for putting kayaks in. Our campsite had a shade shelter, table and fire ring, electricity and h2o. Didn't do much hiking, but we did walk the park at night and saw javelina, deer, wild turkeys, and lots of other critters. Watch out- Game wardens are present, and while fishing from the shore is fine w/out a license, you do need one while out on the lake ;) relaxing and quiet for sure.

Sweet camp spot, shade shelter and right next to the bathrooms. Choke Canyon CampgroundChoke Canyon CampgroundThis was taken on the smaller lake within the confines of the State park. You do not need a fishing license in this spot.
