There are only 20 national grasslands in the United States of America, with two located in the Lone Star State and just one – the Lyndon B. Johnson Grasslands – located right in North Texas.
The Caddo encompasses 17,785 acres and three lakes, including Lake Coffee Mill, Lake Crockett and Lake Fannin. While the Caddo rests northeast of Dallas/Fort Worth in Fannin County, the Lyndon B. Johnson National Grasslands sits right in our readers’ backdoor in Wise County, with a small portion extending into Montague County.
One of Texas’ greatest natural assets, the LBJ covers 20,250 acres, and includes Black Creek Lake. The 30-acre lake is the location for a developed recreational area including picnic units, tent camping, a boat ramp and ample access for fishing.
