Quality of Life
Welcome to Pilot Point!
Discover what makes our town such a great place to live, work and play.
Rich in history, Pilot Point is the oldest settlement in Denton County and is a Texas Main Street City, on the National Register of Historic Places and a recognized Scenic City. Our business registry can help you make a plan of action, if you’re looking to shop ’til you drop, relax at our local spa and salon or grab that bite to eat.
Schools in the Pilot Point Independent School District are among the best in the area, boasting both athletic and academic achievements at the high school level. The district’s athletic teams are among the best, too: The Pilot Point Ladycats Softball Team won the 2013 Class 3A State Championship and the Pilot Point Bearcat Football Team won the 2009 Class 2A Division State Championship.
Pilot Point is located in an outcrop of rich sandy loam soil that provides perfect conditions for breeding and training performance horses. Our area of Texas is home to more than 300 ranches, housing over 25,000 horses, serving an extremely diverse mixture of breeds and horse disciplines, from Reining to Eventing to Trail Riding and everything in between.
Pilot Point is a Texas Main Street City and dedicated to putting on festivals that are fun for the whole family. See what’s coming up next for the Main Street Association.
We are nestled right on the shores of Lake Ray Roberts State Park, which offers outdoor excursions for all. Catch that next big bass, or take a hike or a bike ride throughout the park. The state park has multiple points of entry, including Jordan Branch (west of town off FM1192), Isle du Bois Branch (off FM455), Johnson Branch (off FM922) or the 20-mile Greenbelt multi-use trail that runs from FM455 to US-380. Take the kids for a walk on the wild side at Sharkarosa, a large non-profit wildlife ranch. Springtime offers a plethora of outings, with huge u-pick farms Texas Tulips and Pecan Creek Strawberry Farm. Then have an adult beverage (and tour) at Western Son Vodka Distillery, the fastest growing spirit brand in the country.
