About: Pat Mayse West Recreation Area is located at Pat Mayse Lake on the Red River Basin in Lamar County, Texas. Easy access to developed park areas has made the lake a mecca for families who enjoy camping, picnicking, swimming, boating, fishing and other outdoor recreation.

The lake provides excellent opportunities for fishing and hunting. Sport fish species in the lake include largemouth bass, white crappie, sunfish, striped bass, channel and flathead catfish, and other common fish species. These lands are managed for upland game and white tail deer and are open to the public as a public hunting area. The game species present include deer, fox squirrel, gray squirrel, bobwhite quail, morning dove, cottontail rabbit, raccoon, and fox.

Fur bearers such as opossum, beaver, mink, skunk, and nutria are also present. The lake also provides resting and feeding habitat for migratory waterfowl. A few miles north of the project area are the famed Red River Bottoms where waterfowl congregate in great numbers. The campground boasts over 80 ideal campsites.
