Lake Meredith National Recreation Area exists as part of the National Park System in order to provide for public outdoor recreation use and enjoyment of the lands and waters associated with Lake Meredith in the state of Texas, and to protect the scenic, scientific, cultural, and other values contributing to the public enjoyment.
Located within the dry and windswept high plains of the Texas Panhandle lies a hidden oasis, a welcoming haven where wildlife and humans find respite from the dry grasslands above. Through this plain, the Canadian River has cut dramatic 200-foot canyons, or breaks, where humans have eked out a living for over 13,000 years. Lake Meredith now occupies these hidden coves where early humans once roamed. Families have been coming to Lake Meredith National Recreation Area for generations to partake in traditional outdoor activities including family gatherings, picnics, swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, bicycling, jogging and camping.
