Murrell Park – Flower Mound, Texas
Murrell Park is located on the north side of Lake Grapevine and is operated by the Army Corps of Engineers. This park sits on the bluffs of the north shore overlooking the main lake. This is a very well-maintained park and one of our favorite parks on the lake.
There are plenty of campsites with covered picnic areas and fire pits. Most sites are in heavily treed areas offering plenty of shade. These sites are located along the bluffs and shores of Lake Grapevine offering great views of the lake. All sites are non-electric sites.
This is a huge park that would be great for filling and day or weekend. The day-use picnic areas are currently free. The picnic tables have fire pits located right next to them which are great for cooking out.
The Park is open to the public every day from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Entry for day use is free of charge. Once inside the park, you will have full access to covered picnic tables, restrooms, boat ramps with plenty of parking, fishing trails, hiking and biking trails (the extensive Northshore Trail), Twin Coves Marina, and the Rockin’ S Bar and Grill. The park also includes Hippy Point Campground, offering a number of easy-access campsites that can be reserved for a small fee.
Murrell Park is popular for picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, boating, and fishing. The park is home to the well-known Northshore Trail, which welcomes hikers and mountain bikers.
Horses and motorized bikes including E-Bikes are not permitted on the Northshore Trail. Horses are not permitted in Murrell Park; however, there are horse trails available on the south side and west end of the lake.
Hunting is not allowed in the park but is available in some of the surrounding public lands. Anglers can fish along the shoreline or from the water; popular species include black and white crappie, catfish, and bass.
This facility offers 11 tent-only campsites along the lakeshore with views of the water. These sites do not have electrical or water hookups.
All campsites have campfire rings grills, and picnic tables, and some have picnic shelters. Two pit toilets are provided; shower and flush toilet facilities are not available.
A community water spigot is available from spring through fall and is shut off during some of the winter months. It is recommended that campers provide their own water.
The park contains one low-water boat ramp as well as a high-water boat ramp.
Campsites 1 through 7 have no water or electricity. They also do not have picnic tables. They do have tent pads and fire pits. Only site 2 has a cooking grate on its fire pit. The others are just open pits surrounded by rocks so plan accordingly.
