Water quality in the Trinity River has steadily improved since the early 1970s, largely because of efforts by the Upper Trinity Basin Water Quality Compact, along with the passage of the federal Clean Water Act.


The Trinity River Authority owns and operates several recreational facilities on Lake Livingston including one full-service camping facility, one day-use facility and multiple free public boat ramps.

Wolf Creek Park, a 110-acre park near Coldspring, Texas, opened in 1972. The park offers 102 camping sites, including 54 campsites with full hookups for RV’s, complete with 50-amp service and concrete pads. There are also 48 campsites with water and electricity. Park amenities include restrooms and showers, boat ramps, fishing piers, fish cleaning stations, marina, playground and volleyball and basketball courts. The park is open from March through November.

Tigerville Park is a day-use facility located in Livingston that includes a free public boat ramp, restroom facilities and day-use picnic amenities. Additionally, TRA owns and maintains four free public boat ramps around the lake including, Blanchard, Patrick's Ferry, Whiterock and Point Blank.
