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.
Caddo Trail Riders Association is a group of horse and mule lovers who organized to promote riding in the Caddo National Grasslands and broke ground on this campsite in September 2000. As a growing family oriented group, they encourage preservation/respect for our wilderness habitat. Activities include trail rides, cookouts, annual fund raising, trail and camp maintenance, and Christmas Party! Come join the fun of exploring nature on horseback!
A year like this has been makes the good ones that much better. We still have a beautiful place to escape and ride, and it is in great shape.
Deer season closes January 3rd, for all you folks who ride around it.
For anyone who forgot to winterize your trailers - it may not bee to late - get er done.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope for a better year in 2021. We miss seeing everyone at our parties.
