Wanting to get out and do something fun? We get it. To prevent you from going stir-crazy, we’ve created the following list so you know what’s fun to do around Corinth, Texas. These places and activities might be just what you’ve been looking for to enjoy a day out with family and friends.
Old Alton Bridge
Known locally as Goatman’s Bridge, Old Alton Bridge spans Hickory Creek in Denton County, Texas. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988, and in 2001, the city constructed a new bridge across the creek for motorist traffic. Today, with no cars allowed on the bridge, it’s popular among hikers because it connects the hiking and bridle trails of Elm Fork and Pilot Knoll. If you love nature or photography or both, Old Alton Bridge is a great place to check out. You can make a day trip out of it by hiking along the scenic trails.
Corinth Community Park
If you’re looking for a good place to hang out with family or friends or just want to enjoy the nice weather, stop by Corinth Community Park. This park is located in the center of town on Corinth Parkway. You can play on the baseball and softball diamonds, basketball court, soccer fields, football fields, swingsets, and shaded playground. Explore nature on the trails, check out the ponds, and enjoy a picnic at the picnic tables, benches, or pavilion. With several available amenities, you can easily spend the morning or afternoon at this public park.
Pilot Knoll Park
Another great park to check out is Pilot Knoll Park near Highland Village, Texas. It’s located about 8 miles south of Corinth and features waterfront property on Lewisville Lake.
One side of the park has a day use area, and the other side has nonelectric and RV campsites. On the day use side of the park, you’ll find horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, swim areas, trails, and shaded picnic areas. The trails are great for hiking or horseback riding. On the camping side of the park, you’ll find a playground with a picnic table and grill as well as restrooms with showers. Each campsite features a grill, a picnic table, a fire ring, and water hookups.
To enter Pilot Knoll Park, expect to pay a day use fee of $10 per vehicle. The overnight camping fee is $25 per night. If you plan to visit the park often, consider purchasing an annual pass for $35.
Watertoyz Flying and Floating Toys
If you want to get out on the water during the summer, consider renting a boat or personal watercraft from Watertoyz LLC. From March through September, you can go out on Lake Lewisville any day of the week. Watertoyz rents pontoon boats built for laid-back water cruising, Malibu Sportsters for water skiing and wakeboarding, and Yamaha WaveRunners for individualized fun on the water. A Malibu Sportster rental comes with a wakeboard, skis, and tubes.
Each rental includes life jackets and requires a two-hour minimum reservation. Guests are welcome to bring food and drinks aboard the boats. What better way to stay cool during the Texas summer heat than to take a boat out on Lake Lewisville with family and friends?
