Lake Meredith National Recreation Area - Fritch, Texas

Updated: Sep 9, 2021

Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is a United States national recreation area located about 30 miles north of Amarillo, Texas, in the Texas Panhandle. Its main attraction is 10,000-acre Lake Meredith, a reservoir created by Sanford Dam on the Canadian River.

Activities at Lake Meredith include boating, fishing, swimming, camping, hiking, and hunting. Five boat launch ramps remain open, and one marina previously provided access to the lake, however the marina closed during the drought of 2011–2013. Park headquarters are in Fritch.

We found this recreational area to be lovely. The RV/camping area and the overall park was very clean and well designed. This is a very good place to visit and stay with your family. The lake was large and beautiful. This is also a great place to stop when traveling through the area. We stopped here on our way to the Rocky Mountains.
