Fort Griffin served as one in a line of western defensive forts from 1867 to 1881. Remnants of the fort remain today at Fort Griffin State Historic Site, which is also home to the Official State of Texas Longhorn Herd.  Among the fort’s ruins are a mess hall, barracks, first sergeant’s quarters, bakery, powder magazine, and hand-dug well that are all deeply tied to Texas history. The park has 500+ acres and permission has been granted  to ride on adjoining ranches.

 

There are 19 available electrical hookups, all with water, some with sewer.  However, you must set up your pen in the equestrian camping area, which is within walking distance.  The campground area also has two men’s and women’s restrooms with shower facilities.  Prices for hookups are $15.00 per night for electric and $22.00 per night for electric and sewer.  There are two areas for primitive camping which are $10.00 a night. There is also a $4.00 day use fee. The park is happy to accommodate anyone who might want to come a day early or stay a day late.  To reserve an electrical spot, you must call the park at 325-762-3592.

 

As we discovered this past year, it was easier to mail or email a copy of your coggins to the secretary, Marcy Stellfox, ahead of time.  The park requires a copy of your coggins.
