I recently came across an article that was written in Oklahoma in 1990 about a spot in the Texas panhandle many of us are very familiar with. In fact, it's a spot many of us have spent many a hot summer day at. The article was about Lake Meredith.

Is Lake Meredith ready to reclaim its "former" glory?

Lake Meredith Is One Of The Panhandle's Best Outdoor Getaways

We're pretty blessed in the Texas panhandle. We have Palo Duro Canyon State Park. We have Caprock Canyon State Park. There are all kinds of lakes, ponds, and plenty of places to see the sun set and rise.

If you love the outdoors, this is as good a place as any to be.

Lake Meredith has a lot to offer. It's hard to believe that at one point in time it was thought of as one of the best kept secrets of the high plains. At least, that's how a writer from Oklahoma felt about it.

The piece details how beautiful the lake can be, and the massive fish you can catch there.

Is Lake Meredith Ready For Another Summer In The Spotlight?

Before all of the rain we've recently received, I had made several trips out to Lake Meredith. On more than one occasion, the person with me commented how low the water seemed to be.

The drought in the area put a strain on Lake Meredith. There were news headlines all over about the water level being down, and continuing to go down.

The rains we got recently helped out with that. As of yesterday, people are celebrating Lake Meredith sitting at a current depth of about 79.30 feet.

Not only that, the place looks downright gorgeous. Everything is green. The rains really helped spruce the place up.

With plenty of water, sunshine, and free camping (in some areas), Lake Meredith is looking like my spot of choice this summer.

With everything looking so good, I wonder, is it Lake Meredith's time to shine once more? Not just for us, but for those from outside the Texas panhandle.

June 18 was National Wanna Get Away Day, and it got us to thinking of where Texans can get away from it all this summer and have a great time without breaking the bank.
