Camp Circle J (Circle J Ranch) is an all male resort & campground, serving the gay community since 2005! We have 107 acres located in the rolling hills of beautiful east Texas, approximately 70 miles SE of Dallas.
There are vast wooded areas, green pastures & a large spring fed lake, for swimming, sunning on the deck, kayaking and canoeing or swim platform. If a natural body of water is not your thing, you can also enjoy our pool! Our guests enjoy the community campfire, complimentary cookout on Friday nights, Saturday night potlucks and complimentary continental breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday mornings, that include Mitch's amazing homemade breads and jams!
