Plan A Camping Trip At Belton Lake

Nothing refreshes the body and mind like the great outdoors. Fortunately, we have a beautiful lake just down the road. At Belton Lake, getting in touch with nature is easy with camping and outdoor activities!

The Campgrounds

No matter how you like to camp, there’s bound to be a campsite for you by the lake. The campgrounds have spots designated for RVs, cozy cottages, and roughing it in your own tents. If you arrive in an RV, you can enjoy all the comforts of home with the site’s water and electricity hookups, perfect for a multi-night stay with larger groups. For campers truly seeking a return to nature, the primitive camping sites at the Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA) offer waterside recreation with easy access to the aquatic features and inland activities.

Recreation

While you’re getting in touch with the beautiful scenery, you’ll find all sorts of outdoor activities available at BLORA. Bring a mountain bike and tackle the biking trails, which offer engaging challenges for riders of all skill levels. You can also saddle up to explore the horseback riding trails. The adventurous can reach new heights at the 53-foot climbing wall, while sharpshooters can face off in the paintball courses.

Gone Fishing

Anglers will be thrilled to see the broad variety of fish species that call the lake home.  Drop a lure in the lake and you might come home with a boast-worthy bluegill, catfish, or bass. In the past, the waters have even served as the setting for a Lonestar Throwdown kayak fishing tournament. If you’re hunting largemouth bass, you might have your best luck fishing in the back sides of coves where the north winds can’t chill the waters, especially from the winter into April. If it’s catfish you’re after, they’re in season all year long.

Plan Your Visit

Belton Lake is open to the public year-round. BLORA’s address is 7999 Sparta Road, Belton, Texas 76513.  The campgrounds do take reservations, so it might be wise to call ahead if you plan your getaway around a major holiday.
