The Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland encompasses a total area of 20,309 acres in two different counties in Northeastern Texas, (Wise and Montague counties). The main city neighboring the forest and its resources is Decatur, but there are several other nearby cities and towns including Parris, Alvord, and Bonham. The park can be accessed using several routes including US 81/287, US 380, and FM 100.
The National Grassland is managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Several attractions make the Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland a great place to visit. First, the National Grassland has plenty of amazing flora and fauna including the red fox, coyotes, bobcats, white-tailed deer, waterfowl, bobwhite quail, turkey, and songbirds.
These animals can be appreciated by walking through one of the trails in the grassland that is about 50 miles long, and that is used for several other purposes as well. The trails also link several small lakes in the National Grassland. Besides these attractions, visitors can enjoy lots of recreational activities including fishing, hunting, camping, boating, hiking, horseback riding, swimming, and mountain biking.
The amenities in the protected land include group camp, boat ramps, fishing piers, archery range, campground, picnic sites, trails (75+ miles). If you have a doggie, you can bring them to Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland to enjoy most of the recreational activities. Some areas of the grassland are not accessible to dogs, and you will, therefore, need to find out which areas of the park are accessible to you and your pooch.
That said, there are several other areas that you can access as long as you keep your dog leashed. When your dog is not leashed, then they should be in a secure enclosure. Furthermore, it is essential to ensure that you clean up after your dog and ensure that your dog is always well-behaved towards other wildlife, animals, and visitors while visiting the Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland.
