Lake Sweetwater Camping

There are two campgrounds at Lake Sweetwater.  “Lake Sweetwater Municipal Park Campground” is the larger and is located at the base of the north face of the dam on Farm to Market Road 2035 (3.9 miles south of I20 exit 249).  The other is on the shoreline next to “Pappy’s Bait & Grill” at the east end of the dam (4.3 miles south of I20 exit 249).  Pappy’s is also on Farm to Market Road 2035 but it is a half mile “up the hill” and east of Municipal Campground.  Google online maps and most paper maps do not show either campground.  You can find “home made” maps that do show the campgrounds on the map page.

Pappy’s Bait & Grill has seven shoreline camping spots with water and electric hookups that are suitable for RVs and tenting.  Call (325) 235-1223 for availability and reservations.  The cost is $20 per night with hookups or $10 per night without.

Lake Sweetwater Municipal Park Campground has 32 RV or tenting sites with water and electric hookups, plus dozens of unmarked RV and tent spaces without hookups.  Call (325) 235-8816 for availability and reservations. The cost is $10 per night for sites with hookups or $6 per night for spaces without.
