August 24, 2012: Bryan, Texas -

Texas Municipal Power Agency (TMPA) has announced new operating hours for the Gibbons Creek Reservoir. Beginning October 1, 2012, Gibbons Creek Reservoir will be open to the public every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as well as Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.

In an effort to accommodate Gibbons Creek guests, operational hours have been modified to closely coincide with sunrise and sunset. The Gibbons Creek staff hopes the new extended hours will better serve those wishing to visit a little later in the evening.
RV Campers staying one or more weeks will still be able to enjoy the same conveniences they have in the past such as making reservations by phone, late arrival, and access to Gibbons Creek after normal operating hours.

Since Gibbons Creek Reservoir opened in 1985, anglers have come to know it for its outstanding fishing. In 2002, in an effort to make Gibbons Creek family oriented, TMPA added water contact sports, RV and primitive camping, public restrooms with shower facilities, and a designated swimming area. Whether it's water skiing, sailing, jet skiing, swimming, or just relaxing in the grass soaking up the sun, Gibbons Creek Reservoir offers something for the whole family. So come on out and kick back with friends and family while enjoying the many activities offered by Gibbons Creek.
