Bois D'Arc Cabin has recently been completely remodeled, it is surrounded by 17,863 acres of the Caddo National Grasslands (public land).
Currently, it features 2 lakes, Lake Crockett (450 acres) and Coffee Mill Lake (750 acres) great for hybrid bass, bluegill, catfish, and crappie fishing which is restocked regularly. Another fun excursion for everyone is Ladonia Fossil Park where you can search for real fossils which is about 20-25 mins from the cabin.
Trails for hiking and wildlife viewing are also used for bike riders. Trail maps are available from the US Forest Service.
Horseback riding is allowed year-round. Contact the Forest Service for information on access points for horses and trailers.
The Bois d' Arc Creek Unit has several multi-use trails leading from the two main lakes, Coffee Mill Lake and Lake Davy Crockett. North American birds and native wildlife can be seen year round. During the summer more songbirds visit and can be heard near the lake areas. Beavers and otters inhabit the lakesides.
The Ladonia Unit habitat attracts dickcissels, eastern meadowlarks, sedge wrens and scissor-tailed flycatchers. Care should be taken when accessing the Lodonia Unit because of the undefined boundaries.
