Lake Meredith National Recreation Area

Lake Meredith National Recreation Area is located near Fritch, Texas on the windswept plains of the Texas Panhandle.  The dry grasslands have been cut by the Canadian River to create a canyon which is now a man-made reservoir.

The Sanford dam has created Lake Meredith which is the largest body of water in a 200-mile radius and supplies water to 750,000 nearby residents.  It attracts many migratory birds as well as recreationists who wish to boat, swim, fish, hunt, camp, hike, and bike ride.
