Overnight trails in Texas

Hi all!

I am getting a horse trailer within the next month. Me and my sister are very interested in traveling a few hours to parks that cater to horses. With new trails and new scenery. Maybe staying a night or two if the park has small camp paddocks.

I live right near Dallas and was wondering if anyone knew of some nice places like this in Texas of SO OK.

Thanks everyone!

Places to Ride

Try Palo Duro Canyon, it is kinda far but very nice, also the LBJ Grasslands has many horse trails, it is 30 miles north of Ft. Worth

Ditto for LBJ grasslands

To the east of you is Ebenezer State Park

Both have camping options - Ebenezer has corrals, electricity, potable water and showers at the campground

Ebenezer is fabulous. The bathrooms and private showers are always clean - brand new too! The park is well maintained and clean. Corrals are nice. Each site has a covered table.

The trails are wonderful and I am working at mapping them. Mostly sandy trails. Trees to step over, you can ride your horse on the beach, up the hills, up down and around. We are going in April and May. It is our favorite camping spot!

Wow! Thanks so much everyone! That website is so helpful. And Ebenezer sounds great. Cannot wait to try that one out. To be honest I want to try all of the ones that show up on that map out.

woodsey, if you go to my blog at Trail Riding Adventures in Texas there are tons of pictures of us at Ebenezer, maps, and now EveryTrail Garmin links to the rides.

I have pictures on there from all over the park.
