Fairfield Lake State Park

Search Fairfield Texas

The park is on 1460 acres of land northeast of the city of Fairfield in Freestone County. The area around the park was long occupied by Indians. It was settled before the Civil War and used for agriculture. Texas Utilities built a dam that created Fairfield Lake as a cooling system for its new power plant. The company later leased the site for the park to the state of Texas.

Activities include camping, backpacking, hiking, nature study and bird watching. Waterskiing and jet skiing are popular as well.
