Cleburne State Park Information:
This 528 acre park is located on the 116 acre spring fed Cedar Lake; Camp Creek meanders through the park. The park was acquired from the City of Cleburne and private investors in 1935 and 1936, and opened to the public in 1938. In 1935, CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps)Company 3804 constructed the small earthen dam impounding Cedar Lake, and built a 3 mile long scenic roadway around the lake. In 1936, they built a concession building, a boathouse, and a bathhouse. Additional work was completed in 1940. Park habitat consists of rocky soil covered with heavy woodlands of cedar, oak, elm, mesquite, redbud, cottonwood, sycamore, and ash and sumac trees. Spring wildflowers are abundant, including fields of bluebonnets. Wildlife species include deer, turkey, duck, armadillo, squirrel, skunk, bobcat, swamp and cottontail rabbit, raccoon, opossum, coyote, beaver, and many species of birds. Common fish species include crappie, bass, catfish, bluegill, and red ear sunfish. The land was a former favorite hunting ground for Indians. The Comanche traveled from this area on a concealed trail on raiding missions in the south. Park entrance and camping fees apply.For more complete park information, watch the Park Video.  From Cleburne, take U.S. 67 south to Park Road 21.
