 Located in Cass County in the far North East corner of Texas,  Atlanta State Park is a large park (1475 acres) located on the large (20,300 acre) Lake Wright Patman.  The nearby town of Jefferson caters to tourists showing off it’s Antebellum homes.Just to the northeast is the city of Texarkana with the interesting geography of two unique parts separated by State Line Ave,  one half located in Texas and the other half in Arkansas.  The land for this park was acquired in 1954.  Facilities are older but clean and maintained.  5 miles of hiking and nature trails are a pleasant break from the lake which stays busy with fishermen all year round.  In season swimming from the sandy beach or watersking are popular activities.  Campsites set in the piney woods are pleasant and spacious.  The Knights Bluff area offers 15 pull-thru full hook-ups.  We didn’t care for the fact that day users, mostly anglers must drive the park road through this camping area on their way to the boat ramp.  Two other camping loops with 44 electric and water sites and 8 primitive sites offer more seclusion.  Nearby is the geographical point where Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas meet.  It is marked by a stone marker.  Stand with one foot in Texas, the other in Arkansas and touch Louisiana for a fun photo op.  Nearest WallMart is in Atlanta 13 miles away.
