There are nearly 19,000 acres of clear, deep water to play in and plenty of places to launch and park your boat. The picturesque cliffs and 310 miles of shoreline offer shelter from the Texas winds for skiing, tubing and wakeboarding. At the same time there is plenty of open water for sailing and catching air on a personal watercraft.

Water Permit Fees
- Annual: $50
- Discount annual permit (over 65 or active duty/retired with proper ID): $35
- Daily: $5

Permits will be sold at local vendors, Chamber of Commerce and the Brazos River Authority Lake Office. Daily permits are also available in 24-hour dispensers at the Public Boat Ramp, South D&D Public Use Area and West Side Park.
The permit must be on the watercraft at all times and presented to Law Enforcement Officer upon request. A fine of up to $500 for failure to comply will be enforced.
All proceeds will support the recreational program at Possum Kingdom Lake.
There are several locations on Possum Kingdom lake where you can rent boats and personal watercraft. Contact the boat rental businesses for boat reservations and rates.
