Wolf Creek (Navarro Mills Lake)

Purdon, Texas

Overview

Wolf Creek Park is located on the northern shore of Navarro Mills Lake in central Texas.

Visitors can enjoy a view of the lake from the facility and participate in popular outdoor actives like camping, boating, fishing and picnicking. The lake area provides the perfect setting to get away from it all, especially for city-dwellers from the nearby Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.

Recreation

Birdwatching is a favorite year-round pastime for lake guests. Many species of songbirds, hawks, great blue herons, ducks, geese, other shorebirds and even an occasional bald eagle visit the area.

Fishing is also popular at Navarro Mills, and the lake holds the current state record for white crappie. Fishermen come from near and far to sample some of the best crappie fishing anywhere.

There are also healthy populations of channel and yellow catfish, and hefty hybrid stripers are often caught below the dam when water is being released. Liberty Hill has a fishing pier, and there is a full-service marina at the lake.

Facilities

Wolf Creek Park offers 50 campsites with water and electric hookups, 22 non-electric sites, two double sites and one group site. Public restrooms with showers, a group picnic shelter, fishing pier, dump station and a two-lane boat ramp with a courtesy dock are provided within the facility.

Natural Features

Most of the campsites are partly shaded, and Wolf Creek is also a favorite viewing area for wildflowers. The brilliant array of native flowers draws visitors from all over to the lake area during the spring. Bluebonnets, paintbrushes and a myriad of other native plants transform the often-bleak winter landscape into an incredible palette of colors. A wide variety of habitat provides a home and abundant food supply to diverse wildlife. Visitors might stumble across squirrels, rabbits, coyotes, foxes, bobcats, white-tailed deer, raccoon or armadillo.
