There’s plenty to do in Collin County, especially if you love a outdoor living. Lake Lavon, a manmade freshwater lake near McKinney, is a popular spot for fishing, where you can catch largemouth bass, blue catfish, white bass and crappie. Fifteen lakeside parks with boat ramps are operated by the Army Corps of Engineers, and a nominal fee grants you year-round access to the lake. Adjoining the Corps of Engineers park, you’ll find Bratonia Park, with a complete model airplane landing strip and work area. Nearby Myers Park occupies more than 160 acres and features indoor and outdoor arenas, a stall barn, a gazebo, a recreation hall, and two camping areas. Denton County lies just to the west, with three lakes, numerous parks, and miles of Trinity River hiking and equestrian trails.
