Benbrook Lake is located in the scenic open countryside of rolling hills and prairie meadows and offers some of the finest public parks in or near Fort Worth, Texas. Picnicking, camping, fishing, hunting, boating, birdwatching, and hiking and horseback riding trails, are just the beginning of the activities available in the parks and other public lands at Benbrook Lake. Playgrounds, sporting complexes, stables, marinas, and golf courses are all part of Benbrook Lake recreation leased by the adjacent cities. The Corps of Engineers manages all other parks and lands around the lake, and has developed camping and picnicking facilities in Longhorn, Holiday, Mustang, and Rocky Creek Parks.
