Overview

Double Lake Recreation Area was built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps and offers a little of everything, including camping, fishing, swimming, picnicking, hiking and simply relaxing in nature. A variety of tent, RV and group campsites are available.

Natural Features:

The area has rolling hills forested with hardwood and pines. The campground is surrounded by the 23-acre Double Lake. 

Temperatures are moderate to cool from September through May, and hot and humid from June to August. Winters are cool and wet.

Recreation:

Double Lake is stocked with bass, bream and catfish. There are three fishing piers and a limited access boat ramp with parking nearby for trailers. Only boats with small electric motors are allowed. Boat and canoe rentals are available seasonally. 

A 5-mile hiking trail leads to Big Creek Scenic Area, and there is access to part of the 128-mile Lone Star Hiking Trail. A 20-mile mountain bike trail meanders around the lake. 

Swimmers can relax on a sandy beach after taking a cool plunge.
