May 30 Beautiful Area
Lovely pine tree with very pretty camp site. Interesting area with cactus. We saw quite a few people with their horses their in the horse camp area. Ticks and air mites. Be prepared. It is a very lovely area with good trails.
October 25 Great place to hike, interesting flora
We had a beautiful day for a picnic and hiking. We also spent some time at the fish hatchery visitor center. We want to come back and see it in action. Practically had the place to ourselves and enjoyed the quiet and the butterflies.
May 20 Wagons or driving
I hear that this park is good for driving horses, does anyone have any input on this? Thank you
June 3 Terrific trails and terrible ticks
The trails were well marked and just plain awesome. They were great for backpacking. Be prepared to deal with tons and tons of ticks.
May 16 Awesome Horse Trails!
Fantastic horse trails and park - a definite must-visit. Amazing well-kept, generally double-wide sand trails with gorgeous timber and hills, and even Cacti! One of our favorite places to ride -- trails well marked (color-coded) of varying lengths, with easy access day parking and overnight camping.
April 17 Wonderful place to wander
I have hunted turkeys at Sandridge and have also just walked trying to be lost. It is quiet, natural, one of my favorite places to be. What God has provided for us there!!
