General Information

Description - Fort Boggy is located in Leon County and consists of 1847 acres. It was graciously donated to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in 1985 by Eileen Crain Sullivan to be developed as a state park. The terrain is wooded, rolling hills, bottom land meadows, and wetlands. The abundant wildlife includes white-tailed deer, raccoons, squirrels, foxes, and beavers. A large portion of the park is subject to flooding during wet periods, providing excellent habitat for waterfowl and other varieties of aquatic wildlife. The ample water availability favors a wide diversity of vegetation including woodlands comprised of post oak, hickory, elm, sweetgum, and pecan, with undergrowth of American beauty berry, dogwood, sassafras, yaupon, hawthorn, green briar, and Alabama supplejack. Savannah grasslands occur throughout the park made up of little bluestem, Indian grass, purpletop, switchgrass, and stands of the highly-endangered Centerville Brazos mint plant.

Attractions - The park has a beautiful beach, swimming area and 2 hiking/mountain bike/nature trails. A reservable open air group pavilion is made of stone/rock and timbers. The pavilion sits on a hill, overlooking the lake, with a beautiful view. There are picnic tables in the pavilion and a BBQ pit in the back. The pavilion will hold approximately 50 people. Call our reservation center to reserve the group pavilion ($50 per day). Other facilities include: restrooms without showers; a hiking trail around the lake that's being completed; and several picnic tables close to the lake

Recreation - The park is currently open Wednesdays through Sundays (for day use only 8am-sunset) and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Swimming, fishing, hiking and mountain biking is allowed. There is a boat ramp and the lake (approximately 15 acres) is open to small boats, canoes, kayaks, etc.

Climate - January minimum 35 degrees; average 35 degrees; July maximum 96 degrees. Rainfall: 39"

Location - The park is located about 4 miles south of Centerville on State Highway 75.
