Situated on the lake just outside the prestigious Sportsman’s World sub-division, Hell’s Gate is quite a sight to behold. The cove is easily the most premier party area in all of Possum Kingdom Lake. It is also the home to one of the most massive firework displays in the state of Texas during the fourth of July. Hell’s Gate is defined by the two giant cliffs that stand guard over the entry to a cove on the south end of Possum Kingdom Lake. One of these cliffs, Devil’s Island, serves as the first location for the Red Bull Cliff Diving event held every summer at the Lake.
To get an adequate appreciation for Hell’s Gate here is a “birds-eye” view of the cove captured by drone:
