Lake Bonham Recreation Area

Appropriately named, this park has something for everyone. There is a double wide launch ramp for boats , enclosed heated/cooled event center, an open pavilion for parties, a public beach for swimming & a dock for fishing, a playground for the kids and many lovely camping spots very reasonably priced. There are biking/hiking trails for the hardy and plenty of shade for sitting and cooling off. If you are interested in renting the pavilion or event room, call the Lake Manager Dennis Long at 903-227-7510. To reserve a campsite CLICK HERE!
Note: All boats are required to have a current Bonham Lake permit. Permits can be purchased at the concession stand at the Recreation Area or at the Kwik Chek at 971 FM 273 on the way to the lake from Bonham.
