Lake Meredith National Recreation Area

Contact Info
Fritch, TX 79036



Contrasting spectacularly with its surroundings, Lake Meredith lies on the dry and windswept High Plains of the Texas Panhandle. Dramatic 200 foot canyons carved by the Canadian River surround this 10,000-acre reservoir. The lake was created to supply water for 11 Panhandle cities and to create recreational opportunities such as fishing, boating, waterskiing, sailing, sail-boarding, scuba diving, and swimming. The backcountry surrounding the lake provides areas for hunting, camping, horseback riding, wildlife viewing and hiking.
