The three major parks on Joe Pool Lake are Cedar Hill State Park, Loyd Park, and Lynn Creek Park. Both Cedar Hill State Park and Loyd Park offer up great options for overnight camping and very nice beaches. Lynn Creek Park does not have camping, but does have the nicest beach and swimming area on the lake. Lynn Creek Park is also home to the Oasis Restaurant which is great for on the water dining.
 
Joe Pool Lake is great for fishing. Fish species on the lake include largemouth bass, white bass, white crappie, and channel catfish. We recommend fishing the hydrilla in the coves and submerged pond areas when fishing for largemouth bass.
