Lake Carl Blackwell is a really great place to go ride. $5.00 per trailer to ride for the day. There is a spot on the trail, where i've decided you come to no matter which trail you choose to ride, that has a long picnic style seating area and room to tie the horses. Great area to stop for lunch. Last Labor Day weekend, we took a group that included children and stayed over in the camp grounds. Their are picket poles, and on the outer edges of camp there are trees for tieing. Most of the camp sites have a fire ring. There are 9 gravel sites for fully equiped trailers with picnic tables, electric, and water. They have a 4 pen covered horse shed. One of the people in our group put her three horses in one pen, and it was plenty big enough. The trails are well marked and vary in difficulty. We usually trail hop. The only changes I'd make at Lake Carl Blackwell is for there to be a shower house and maybe a pavilion built and trees planted in the open areas in the horse camp. Not much shade unless your on the outer edges of camp. The trails have plenty of shade though. Can't wait for Labor Day Weekend this year!
