Rough River Dam State Resort Park
The park encompasses 637 acres (2.58 km2). Rough River Dam of 1959, stretching 1,590 feet (480 m) across and 160 feet (49 m) high, creates Rough River Lake, a recreational lake of approximately 5,100 acres (21 km2). The lake is home to a variety of bass including largemouth, smallmouth, Guadalupe, spotted, white, yellow, and striped bass as well as other game fish, making fishing a significant portion of its tourism.
