Lake Tawakoni State Park


White Deer Reach camping loop.  Water & electric sites are available at $20 per night.

Car-camping adventure so bring the kids, dogs, and everything that will fit in the car.

Lake Tawakoni State Park is east of Dallas.  This event is in conjunction with a guided fishing trip organized by +1 (Scott Michnavich).


It’s car camping, so bring your luxury items. Big tent, big bag, and lots of good food. Campfire games and adult beverages are always welcome. Just remember to put your beverage in an alternate container. State parks have a strict ‘no public consumption of alcohol’ policy.

You can reserve a campsite on Texas Parks and Wildlife’s website, however, they will not allow you to reserve a particular site. You’ll be asked your preference of site when you check in at the park. Consider sharing a ride and a camping site with another NTO-er.

The first person to check in should post their site number on this meetup page under the comments after checking in, that way we can all get sites near one another.

Firewood gathering is prohibited in all Texas State Parks. Please bring firewood so we may continue our tradition of awesome NTO campfires.
