Ray Roberts Lake was created to provide water to the cities of Dallas and Denton, and the park has units on the north and south sides of the lake, plus a greenbelt corridor for equestrian and hike and bike use. Activities include picnicking, camping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, rollerblading, swimming on a beach area (unsupervised), boating, and fishing. The Johnson Branch also offers backpacking.
