The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District welcomes you to Waco Lake,

camping and boating in Texas. For more detailed information on the lake click here.

Please see attached flyer for the upcoming Get Outdoors Event at Twin Bridges Park at Waco Lake. The event is free, and was created to encourage families to be more active and to safely enjoy the out of doors. There will be free food and fun "hands on" activities for everyone. There will also be door prizes and lots of give-aways.
The Recreation.gov website has an entirely new look with features including simplified search capabilities, enhanced content and streamlined Google maps. Visitors to the website can now do much more than make reservations for camping, tours and tickets at federal facilities. The Corps has almost 30,000 reservable campsites in Recreation.gov and there is a wealth of information about Corps water resources projects. More details on the new features added to the Recreation.gov website may be found under the “New Look! New Features!” Tab located at the top right hand corner of Recreation.gov home page. We hope you take some time to explore the new Recreation.gov website, and better yet, we hope you find some great new places to get out and Explore Your America! http://www.recreation.gov
