Camp & Trail Info

The Bois D'Arc campground is open year round with over 28 miles of shady trails around Cofffee Mill & Crockett Lakes in Fannin County Texas.

There are 27 campsites available, with 15 pull thru's for large trailers. All sites are supplied with water, horse tie, fire ring and a picnic table. We also have a handicap accessible campsite with a special boarding ramp. A restroom facility is provided by the US Forest Service and a covered pavilion donated by us THE CADDO TRAIL RIDER's ASSOCIATION. All trails are well marked with metal or wooden signs. Over night parking is $6 per night. Day use parking with in the camp ground is $3. There is also a day use area located 1/3 mile east of  the campground that is free, with water available.

The name "Grasslands" is misleading, as most of the trails are through forested areas including stands of large pine trees. These trees provide protection from wind and sun allowing comfortable year round riding. The trails provide incredible scenery for you and ample watering spots for your animals. Wildlife includes deer, turkey, wild pig, and mixture of water fowl and birds.
