30 Lakes in 30 Days | Lake Cypress Springs | Texas

Eight miles southeast of Mount Vernon in Northeast Texas is Lake Cypress Springs; a haven for anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. The lake has been cleared of timber and brush to promote all kinds of recreation, but towering pines crowd nearly its entire shoreline, allowing some spectacular scenery while out on a SUP. Many springs feed into the lake, keeping the water level relatively constant even as rainfall fluctuates. It’s a very social lake community, so no matter which part of the lake you may be on you will have someone to socialize with.

Five public parks around Lake Cypress Springs give all vacationers a place to sleep, play and party. Eagles can be spotted during the winter months, and some of the biggest fish in the state swim beneath the water year round.
