Status: Open through Thu Dec 31 2015   Season Dates


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.


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.


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:

Fort Worth’s renowned Cultural & Museum District, Stockyards National Historic District, Botanical Gardens, Zoo, Bass Performance Hall, and Sundance Square downtown, are all nearby.
