Lake Meredith National Recreation Area

National Park Service, Texas.

Within the dry plains of the Texas Panhandle lies a hidden oasis, a haven where wildlife and people can find relief from the dry grasslands above. Through this plain, the Canadian River has cut dramatic 200-foot canyons, or breaks, where humans lived many years ago. Lake Meredith occupies these hidden coves and provides 7 different habitats for migratory birds and other wildlife.
