Windsurf Park is a Diamond in the rough. Its name suggests just what a number of enthusiasts are up to several afternoons a week. Watching the windsurfing on a beautiful afternoon when the colors of the water, the sky and the brightly colored sails create a beautiful portrait. On the other hand, the place gets uncomfortably busy with people fishing, swimming and drinking, constructing little tents and sun screens. If you look at the water, its not real tempting to swim in. The silt gets stirred up and its kind murky looking. Police are kind of Leary of the place. It attracts a lot of families as well as "characters". Ive never been witness to criminal activity there, but the ingredients for alcohol and drug related problems are all there.
Abysmal. The "sand" is more like gravel. There is barely any "sand" at all. I took my toddlers on a Friday morning to avoid crowds. It was not crowded but full of trash (bottle caps, glass). My toddler wanted to take her crocs off bc they were filling with gravel. I could not allow her to take her shoes off bc she would step on trash or glass. There were so many old fire piles and piles of charcoal everywhere. I guess people just dump the charcoal on the ground when they are ready to leave? Do not go here. I saw someone cleaning up trash in the parking lot. The city needs to come and dump a few dump trucks of sand. Also a path down to the "beach" would be nice. My expectations were already low, and we had to leave it was so depressing.
Rough park; its just a parking lot and one Pavilion at the top of the hill. Dont go on the weekends during the summer it can be a bad crowd, but at least the police to patrol often. The water is usually muddy. For Windsurfers the shallow water near the beach and the jetty is a plus. The jetty also provides smoother water than the main part of the lake. Its best for sailing during a south or southeast wind, southwest wind pushes the wind line out in the bay. Tips: There is no boat ramp so dont bring a boat or "jet ski" , muddy water is not good for swimming.
Its the only beach Ive found on Ray Hubbard for public swimming. Theres plenty of space for large groups. But there is always trash on the ground and in the water. I found a glass beer bottle in the water. Glad it wasnt broken. Port a potties smell and are rarely serviced. Boaters and jet skiers arent slow or careful when near the swimming area. BUT...of you wanna cookout at the lake and get in the water..and you dont have a boat or lake front property...then your choice is slim. I may go back but I definately wont be taking children with me.
Why is the park shut down??! We got in at 9:00am but by the time the rest of our party showed up they shut the entrance and wouldnt let in any other cars! Ridiculous! Making people walk blocks carryin their stuff! The parking was NOT muddy anymore , the sun dried it out and they still wouldnt open the front gate... Thanks for ruining alot of peoples 4th of July.... TONY VASTANO is the owner .. BEWARE
Place is cool and fun went here last month and me and my cousin were playing basketball at that basketball court and went fishing here 2 years ago in 2015 on the summer and it was fun and I also had my 3rd birthday here back in the early 2000s when ever I was younger and it was great
Been coming here for over 30yrs.This is not a swimming beach, there is no swimming allowed in lake Ray Hubbard. The name says it all Windsurf bay park,is perfect for beginners and advanced sailors.
Portable bathrooms are horrible, other than that, its a great place to swim and picnic... Not too good for fishing with the crowd mostly swimming.

One Gazebo. One covered Picnic area. Both must be reserved. Dirt and Gravel parking lot. Sandy Beach front. Reasonable amount of trash cans.

Nice place but visited by people who consume drugs. A lot of trash in the ground including empty alcohol cans. No security at all.
Lo mejor lugar para ir con mi familia mis hijos
First trip of the summer. It was over crowded, and rude people. Just try to enjoy an hour of beach with my youngest. All well.
Have come a few times with my puppy during the day, seems to be controlled and havent had any issues with drugs that Ive noticed.
So much fun coming here with our dogs. Just wish people wouldnt let their dogs offleash and pick up after them.
This small strip of sandy beach was super busy on labor day but it was clean and theres plenty of activities.
Too many people with too little organization. Chaos! The parking lot is a mess and the grass is poorly kept.
Its a beautiful place but... People here bring alcohol, drugs and there is not official control about that.
Great place to swim and hang out for free. Needs to be picked up more often. a little too much trash.
Was a really good time. Kid friendly. Had a good time with the wife and kids. Will be going back
Nice atmosphere right off of lake, great view, swimming if you want, gazebos n basketball court
Nice little play ground on the lake with tables and a gazebo. Sand at play ground but no swings
One cleanest spots left on Ray Hubbard without going g to Rockwall, or in someone elses yard.
Nice place when there are no crowds. Not a super ton of beach but lots of grass fields.
You can pull your boat right up, but theyre is broken glass all over the beach :(
Es un lugar muy bonito
A little crowded, but disappointed with the amount of trash in the water.
Folkert de Jong
Nice park with a lot of places you can have a bite. Looks over the lake.
Mostly clean. Not too crowded. More grass than beach. Pretty good area.

Peaceful, secluded and nice area to go fishing.
Perfect family spot for picnics and swimming
Clean and basic family spot for the summer!
