EBENEZER PARK, TX

part ofSam Rayburn Reservoir, US Army Corps of Engineers
Status: Open through Wed Dec 31 2014   Season Dates
 

Overview

Ebenezer Park features some of the most beautiful horseback riding trails in southeast Texas. It's the only Army Corps of Engineers park on Sam Rayburn Reservoir with equestrian campsites, making it the go-to destination for horse-owners.

The horse trail terrain is soft and sandy, so horseshoes are not required. Trails glide over rolling hills through creeks and gullies. Some trails even have beach access, allowing riders and their horses to cool off on a hot day.

Natural Features:

The campground, near the Sam Rayburn Dam, is fully shaded by towering pine trees.

The lake is located deep in the woods, bordered by the Angelina National Forest and near the Sabine National Forest.

Recreation:

In addition to horseback riding, activities include fishing, picnicking and swimming. Birding is also rewarding, with chances to see resident wood ducks and migratory birds on their journey to and from the Gulf Coast.

Facilities:

Ebenezer caters best to equestrian campers and tent campers. Equestrian sites have electric hookups and horse corrals near each site. Ebenezer Hall, an enclosed building with a full kitchen, A/C and heating, is available for reservation.

The park does not have a boat ramp, and the nearest boat ramp is four miles down at Twin Dikes Park.

Nearby Attractions:

The 20,700-acre Bannister Wildlife Management Area is on the northern peninsula of the lake. Here, hikers and bikers can explore the designated Eastern Wild Turkey restoration site.
