I am looking to plan a family outing for the in-laws and us here in a couple of months before it gets hot as h***. We're looking to stay within 1 hour of the DFW area, and I want suggestions from people that have actually done it. There are 6 adults and one 3 y/o. Looking for somewhere dog friendly, maybe 3 bedrooms, and that possibly has kayaks available to rent for the family. Of course I want to be able to catch some fish from my kayak, but that's not the priority. ANY suggestions on where to start looking would be greatly appreciated guys!

I have only camped here, but Mineral Wells SP has some cabins and is a great park to kayak, hike, fish, or just enjoy the sun!

Glen Rose has a bunch of place to rent.
You got the Brazos and Paluxy river there if the water is up there is some good fishing.
I have stayed here before and really enjoyed it.

Plenty of places to rent yaks and canoes. there is also Dinosaur Valley State Park which is pretty fun as well.
Within a hour drive to DFW.

We ended up settling on a lake house at Lake Whitney. Thank all of you for your input though, I will keep them in mind for a quiet night with the wife. Not so much the in-laws haha
