Default Catfishing in State Parks, which one?

Most state parks (at least the good one's) are usually booked months in advance. But i am going to try and see if i can get on one for spring break with my daughter and family.

I am a huge saltwater fisherman but i really don't know much about freshwater. I was wondering which state parks have the best chance of me catching some catfish. I will be limited to bank fishing or pier fishing.

I know you can catch bass and crappie at Huntsville state park, I'd bet you could score some cats too!

Are you looking for one with cabins or are you gonna be staying in a camper? Cooper lake has nice cabins and has good bank fishing and so does wright patman but it doesn't have any cabins. If you choose one of them hit me up I'm sure I could take you out on the water

Does it have to be a state park?
Wind Point Park on Tawokini is excellent fishing.
The pier and adjacent areas in Bob Sandlin State Park are excellent as well.
As mentioned Patman is a great lake. I've never caught anything big, but for sheer numbers it's awesome just about anywhere you fish.
