Atlanta State Park is 1475 acres on Lake Wright Patman Dam in Cass County, a few miles southwest of Texarkana. Texas acquired the land in 1954 by the Department of the Army License which expires in 2004 with the option to renew to 2054.

Contrasting seasonal colors of terrain, the lake, sunsets, and pine forests are breathtaking. Abundant bird and wildlife species and woodland plants offer excellent opportunities to observers. Crappie, largemouth bass, white bass, and several species of sunfish are present in good numbers, with quality-size fish available for recreational anglers. Catfish – channel, blue, and flathead are also available in large numbers.
