White Flint Park is located at Belton Lake, which provides some of the best fishing, camping and boating in Central Texas. This year-round campground has 12 sites with screened overnight shelters and 13 RV sites, all with water and electric hookups.
Belton Lake was created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with the construction of Belton Dam in 1954. The 12,300-acre lake is located on the Leon River, just upstream of the confluence of the Leon River and the Little River.
With 136 miles of shoreline, Belton Lake offers a wide variety of recreation activities, including camping, water sports, picnicking and nature trails. This facility has a boat ramp, providing easy access to the water for boaters and anglers.
Hawks, Great Blue herons, ducks, geese, many species of songbirds, bobwhite quail, Rio Grande turkeys and even an occasional bald eagle visit the lake area, yielding year-round opportunities for birders.
Each campsite has a covered picnic table, grill and electric and water hookups. The facility also provides a multi-lane boat ramp, flush toilets, showers and a dump station. Gate attendants reside within the park for visitor service.
All of the campsites are along the shoreline of Belton Lake. The campground is partially forested, providing a mixture of sun and shade.
There is a man-made wetland on the lake between White Flint and Winkler Parks, providing an additional 25 acres of wildlife habitat in the lake area.
