Fees & Passes

There are no entrance fees or camping fees for Lake Meredith National Recreation Area. However, there are fees to launch your boat out on the lake.

Boat Launch Fees:

  • Annual - $40.00
  • Single Day - $4.00

All vessels that require state registration (TX numbers) are subject to the fee. This includes personal watercraft such as jet skis, wet cycles, and similar craft. A valid state boat registration card MUST be presented when purchasing a boating permit. Permits can be obtained at Park Headquarters. The boat launch fees fund boating safety improvements at launch ramps and waterways.
