The indoor and outdoor archery ranges at Cinnamon Creek Ranch challenge hand steadiness and aim as bowmen send arrows flying across an 80-acre facility. Inside, archers choose from 56 lanes and take aim at targets placed at 10 yards, 20 yards, and more than 30 yards away. Outside, more than 150 three-dimensional targets await, offering such configurations as field shots of up to 100 yards and stealthy shots on six 3D ranges. Cinnamon Creek also sells archery equipment and accessories at its pro shop, including more than 300 bows and products by Mathews, Mission, PSE, Hoyt, and Bowtech Archery.
Picnic areas, walking trails, and restaurants dot the shoreline of Eagle Mountain Lake, and the crew at Eagle Mountain Boat Rental helps guests access the attractions with its fleet of rental watercraft. They equip adventurers with jet skis, pontoon boats, fishing boats, pedal boats, and canoes—ensuring that each one contains a full tank of fuel or a motivational rowing coach to keep guests from ever getting stranded. Eagle Mountain’s crew includes a set of water skis with each ski-boat rental, and they also provide renters with the option to rent tubes, wakeboards, or inflatables for additional fees.
Indoor Safari Park embodies childhood dreams of the Serengeti with a varicolored landscape of tropical murals, plush jungle creatures, and both educational and entertaining activities. Cerebral toys teach little tykes the basics of numbers and colors, and wooden train sets review the basic origins of interstate commerce. Around the facility, mechanical elephants and zebras trot through a safe indoor jungle beneath giggling children and a kid-size, primary-colored train chugs to life around a palm-flanked track. On an obstacle-flecked mini-golf course, prehistoric creatures guard the borders of each pin and avoid the ball pits that colorfully resemble the meteorites of their ancestors' demise. Age limits become obsolete with a specific play area for toddlers, and a huge retail area generously yields gift ideas to stumped shoppers.
Originally leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1988, Meadowmere Park welcomes its guests to 250 acres of parklands and lakefront ripe for outdoor activities. As kayaks and paddleboats launch into Lake Grapevine and float across 8,000 acres of water, miles of trails surrounding the lake allow visitors to run, bike, and set world somersault records. As the evening sets in, tents sit beneath twinkling stars at campsites along sandy beaches, and special events unfold at a waterfront pavilion.
