For centuries the raging Brazos River cut its way through the Palo Pinto Mountains. In the 1940's the river was dammed up to form a huge lake nestled within the dramatic North Texas hill country known as Possum Kingdom Lake. The natural views of Possum Kingdom Lake are absolutely spectacular! Possum Kingdom Lake is one of the clearest Texas lakes. As a result Possum Kingdom Lake is a favorite spot for inland scuba diving and boating. Year around activities at Possum Kingdom Lake include fishing, camping, hiking, golf, mountain bikes and horseback riding. Possum Kingdom Lake is only a short drive from Dallas, Ft. Worth, Wichita Falls and Abilene, Texas.
The dam at Possum Kingdom Lake, was built across the Brazos River in Palo Pinto County in the same area where Oliver Loving lived in the 1800's (one of the characters in the movie Lonesome Dove.) Rumor has it, that Possum Kingdom Lake took only a few months to get full, after heavy spring rains, submerged some of the equipment used to build the dam.
Possum Kingdom Lake surface at full level is 1000 feet above mean sea level. The Dam at Possum Kingdom Lake is about 2000 feet long and as high as a 19 story building. Lake Possum Kingdom is huge! Our lake has 310 miles of shoreline which includes sandy beaches, rock cliffs and mountains. McAdams Peak is the highest point in North Central Texas.
