Perfect for those hikers, bikers and horseback riders out there, sites 89 - 108 are the northernmost developed grounds in the park and offer equestrian sites along with bathroom and shower facilities. Wake up ready to roll as you will already be at the departure point for the Cross Timbers Back Country Trail for all types of adventurers.

Keep your pup on the leash. Rangers are strict 🙄

The campsites here are larger since this in a equestrian site and great for larger families. The trail head for the primitive sites is also located here. So if you want to do day hikes or lounge in camp, this is a great place to stay. The cons to this site are, sometime the horses can be a little noise at night, and you will have to dive to the south end of the lake to fish or enjoy the water. Overall this is the area I prefer to camp when I come to this park.
