May 2021 update.
Prayers for Rain have been answered, lake is now full and bigger than before!

We were shocked when we drove just 4 miles north of St. Jo Texas. The topography of this slice of the state changes so dramatically you have to see it to believe it. The flat lands of Highway 82 seem to disappear into red river valley and you might think you are in rolling hills of central Texas. The views alone are worth the drive. The wineries have discovered the area as well, there are several nearby.

Camp Creek Lake is 14 acres built into this spectacular valley; making it one of the most beautiful club lakes in North Texas. The owner has about a dozen wild horses that roam this 88 acre property and it just adds to the ambience of this beautiful ranch. The lake was built in the 80's with depths to 12 feet. The lake nearly went dry in 2011 and came roaring back in 2015 and is teaming with 2 to 3 lb bass. Our electrofish survey proved both densities and relative weights of the fish to be near perfect. There is a large population of crappie and a handful of large brush piles. Along the west side of the lake is a deep (8-10') channel that runs just 10-20 feet from the shoreline. The north side of the lake is a large flat of water mostly 2-4 feet.

You can easily launch boats up to 16' along the bank. There is not an improved boat ramp.

We are not harvesting bass at this time. You may keep all catfish and crappie.

Requirements

Do not remove any bass at this time. Report the total number of crappie and catfish removed, back to the club office through the online reservation system after your outing.

Take all trash with you. Clean boat of all trash including your used soft plastics.
