If tranquility has a home, it’s probably at Fort Boggy State Park near Centerville, Texas. One of the state’s smaller parks, Fort Boggy is unknown to many, yet has a convenient location halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth on Interstate 45.

The 15-acre lake receives its waters from a spring with cooler temperatures, which is perfect for summer swimming. Hiking and biking trails are suitable for families with children. The park offers a 1.5-mile lake trail and a 2-mile nature trail.

Fishing is also popular at Fort Boggy State Park. Visitors fish from the pier, the lake bank, or on the water from small boats or paddle boats. The park has a small boat ramp, but does not rent watercraft.

Overnight stays at Fort Boggy are particularly memorable. Rough camping is available at sites without electricity, water, or restrooms, which visitors reach by hiking. In contrast, the park’s furnished cabins, with air conditioning, kitchen appliances, and indoor toilets and showers, spoil even experienced glampers. Click HERE to view more.
