The Fort Griffin State Historical site is located in the beautiful and cozy town of Albany, Texas and is a great place for a historical journey. Among the fort's ruins are a mess hall, barracks, first sergeant’s quarters, bakery, powder magazine, and hand-dug well that are all deeply tied to Texas history. The campgrounds, located on the banks of the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, provide visitors with an opportunity to relax under large shade trees, enjoy the playground, catch catfish in the river, or hike nature trails connected to the campground. Due to the vast ranches surrounding the property, Fort Griffin has minimal light pollution. The result is an astronomer’s oasis with great skies for viewing constellations, planets, and galaxies at Fort Griffin’s monthly stargazing events.
Amenities include: primitive sites, shelter (no beds), outdoor grill, picnic tables, fire ring, RV water and electrical hookups, full hookups and heat. Hope to see you soon!
