Lake Meredith is a reservoir located 45 miles northeast of Amarillo on the Canadian River formed by Sanford Dam on the Canadian River in Sanford, Texas. It is a major source of drinking water for Amarillo and Lubbock.

Camping and/or picnic facilities are available at 13 developed areas around the lake. The National Park Service provides boat ramps at five points, depending on water levels. Boat launch fees are $4 per day or $10 for a 3-day period. A $40 annual permit is available, renewable each January. Boat docks are available at all open boat ramps. There is one handicap accessible fishing pier at Spring Canyon. Shoreline access is limited, as the sides of the reservoir are very steep. Additional camping areas away from the water are available at McBride Canyon, Mullinaw, and Plum Creek.

*********** NOTICE(S) *************

This area is experiencing a drought which may affect fishing and boat ramp access. Before you go, check the current lake level or contact the controlling authority for current conditions.
