Kermit Sand Hills and Red Sands jeep riding areas are two frequented riding areas in West Texas. Both spots are near El Paso and feature dunes up to 20 miles wide in an unregulated public/private area with primitive camping. Kermit has more than 700 acres of trails, making it the larger of the two areas, but an admission fee is charged by a committee overseeing the recreation area. Red Sands does not charge a fee. Bring plenty of water and rehydrate often; temperatures in this dry, arid desert easily reach triple digits during the summer.
East Texas has one of the largest selections of jeep trails in the state, with some recreation areas featuring up to 3,700 acres of land to explore. One of the more recent areas is the 1,850-acre Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area located 120 miles east of Dallas, near Gilmer. This public park was the first recreation area created by the Texas Motorized Trail Coalition which designed the land specifically for motorized vehicle recreation riders ranging from dirt bike enthusiasts to jeep drivers.
The Panhandle has an abundance of public land for jeep riders, including The Canadian River and Lake Meredith near Amarillo. Both areas offer free riding and camping for jeep enthusiasts of all abilities. One of the largest areas is along the Canadian River, where off-road organizations like the West Texas Outlaws hold annual riding competitions on the 20,000-acre site. Weather here is hot, dry and arid; bring ample water supplies and food, since services are located far from the riding areas.
North Texas and the Gulf Coast
Many of Texas' off-road parks prohibit four-wheel drive vehicles, but not Rocky Ridge Ranch near Denton. This 650-acre private facility has every kind of feature jeep enthusiasts love, including steep hill climbs, stream crossings and jumps in wooded and open settings. For non-riders, this weekend-only park has a 50-acre fishing lake and also features primitive or electric-hookup camping facilities. Jeep riders near Houston are close to one of the state's most luxurious privately-owned recreation areas, General Sam's ATV and Off-Road Park. In addition to 705 acres of piney woods with 60 miles of trails, the park has camping facilities with electric hookups, a party pavilion, vehicle wash-down area, restrooms, showers and an air hose filling station.
