When you book your rental with Mill Creek Ranch Resort at one of our Canton, TX, RV parks or cabin/cottage rentals, you are surrounded by the glorious East Texas lakes. We strive to stand out from other East Texas resorts and offer guests many luxurious amenities and opportunities for adventure. A great way to spend your East Texas vacation is to take a day trip to the lake.
What To Bring to the East Texas Lakes
- Rain or shine, pack sun protection for a day outdoors. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends your sunscreen should be at least SPF 30, broadspectrum, and water resistant. Some sun protection people often overlook when packing is sun protection lip balm, a wide-brimmed hat, UPF clothing, and 100% UV protection sunglasses.
- Don’t forget to pack an insulated cooler filled with drinks and snacks. A fun day at the lake can work up a mighty appetite and thirst. For guests that are 21+, alcoholic beverages can be a fun addition to pack, but make sure you prioritize safety. Just like you wouldn’t drive a car while intoxicated, don’t navigate a boat.
- Packing towels and a dry change of clothes is a great idea. Even if you’re not planning on swimming, there’s always a chance you could get wet. If that happens, you’ll be glad that you came prepared.
How To Spend a Day on the Lake in East Texas
Fishing is always a great time, especially when you are close to the East Texas trophy bass fishing lake. Located just 30 miles away from Mill Creek Ranch Resort is the legendary Lake Fork. Maybe you’ll get lucky and set another Texas state record? Lake Fork holds 15 out of the top 20 Texas state records for largemouth bass. You can also enjoy a day of sailing when you get a boat rental from Ricky’s Boat Rentals.
If you don’t want to make the journey to Lake Fork, you can fish at one of the eight ponds at Mill Creek Ranch Resort. We’ll even supply the poles and bait. Perhaps you can even beat the 9.5 lb. record for fish caught here from either the dock or a paddle boat.
