Overview

Overview

High View Park is on a long peninsula on the western shore of Bardwell Lake, less than an hour south of the Dallas-Fort Worth area in north-central Texas.

The lake has favorable fish and wildlife habitats, providing plenty of opportunities for fishing and hunting, and great locations for camping, boating and hiking. Deer, armadillo, rabbit, squirrel and a variety of bird species inhabit the area.

Natural Features:

The park is grassy and partially forested with a mix of shade and sun. The lake's cool, blue water provides a refreshing break from the Texas heat, while bluebonnets and other wildflowers surround the lakeshore each spring.

Recreation:

Many local fishermen consider Bardwell Lake one of the best kept secrets in the state. Bass fishermen seldom leave empty-handed. Crappie fishing is moderate, and catfish are usually excellent.

The lake has a marina with fishing piers, two of which are enclosed (a small fee is charged for the use of these facilities), and there are several designated hunting areas around the lake, including those for duck hunting.

Facilities:

High View Park offers 21 campsites with water and 50-amp electric hookups, 18 campsites with water and 30-amp electric hookups, 10 picnic sites and one reservable group picnic pavilion, accommodating up to 50 people.

A swimming area with covered benches, a full-service marina, four-lane boat ramp and a courtesy dock make access to the lake easy. While public restrooms with showers help provide a comfortable camping experience.

Nearby Attractions:

Numerous amenities, as well as cultural and historical attractions, lie in the nearby cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.
