Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland is a 20,309-acre property in northeast Texas (northwest of Fort Worth) in the Oak Woodland Prairie Region. The "Grassland" is actually about 60 to 70 percent wooded. The property is primarily used for hiking, camping, horseback riding, hunting and fishing but you'll usually find cattle grazing somewhere on the land. Access to most areas (and use thereof) is free but there are a few areas with developed campgrounds that charge a nominal fee for use.

Like Caddo National Grassland and the four National Forests in Texas, LBJ National Grassland is administered out of an office in Lufkin, Texas. There is a local ranger district office in Decatur.
