Overview

Holiday Park sits on the western edge of Benbrook Lake in north central Texas. Visitors enjoy hiking and horseback riding trails, a fishing pier and a sandy swimming beach.

The park is also where the Fort Worth Thunderbirds, a radio-controlled model airplane club, fly regularly. Spectators love watching the scale model planes.

Natural Features:

Benbrook Lake is on the Clear Fork of the Trinity River, within the Grand Prairie region of Texas. It's just southwest of the Fort Worth metropolitan area.

Recreation:

Prevailing southwesterly winds on the lake attract plenty of avid windsurfers. Fishing, hiking, fossil hunting and boating are also popular. The lake record for largemouth bass is over thirteen pounds.

A foot path from the campground leads to a nature trail with a photography blind. Visitors can spot bluebirds, kinglets, woodpeckers and Carolina chickadees. The trail continues for 14 miles, offering hiking and horseback riding.

Facilities:

Holiday Park offers a variety of sites, including equestrian, shelters, tent and walk-in only sites. There are plenty of wide-open spaces for activities, and boat ramps, docks and fishing piers help visitors enjoy the lake.

Nearby Attractions:

The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District and the Kimball Art Museum are located nearby.
