Discovering the Swimming Holes of East Texas – Powell Park on Sam Rayburn
Many families come back to Powell Park over and over.
Often, they discover the park on a day trip looking for a fun place to swim during the brutal Southeast Texas summer heat.
The family swimming area is one of the best in East Texas. Amenities include a seventeen-foot water slide, water trampoline, aquatic obstacle course, challenge rockers, and a floating mat.
They come back to tent camp, bring their RV, or to enjoy one of the comfortable lakeside rental cabins.
Sam Rayburn is known as one of the world’s premier bass lakes, but Powell Park is also known for big and plentiful white perch (crappie). Fishermen also do well with catfish on trotlines and trophy sized alligator gar.
Would you like to enjoy a memorable fishing trip with your team at work, church group, or family? Powell Park on Lake Sam Rayburn has a guide service for up to eight fishermen that specializes in catching large numbers of white perch.
Their corner of Lake Sam Rayburn is also a top place for bird watchers to get close to majestic osprey and bald eagles.
