Adventures

STEAK-N-TRAIL 

The family at Ranger Creek Ranch relishes the opportunity to introduce you to the historic Wichita River Cedar Breaks better known as “The Big Empty”.  For those of you that have an interest in history there is no better way to experience it other than “getting out amoungst it” on horseback or on a good ole fashion hay ride which by the way…. is compatable for any age group. Take a hay ride through the vast canyons and running springs of the historic area that held the last herds of buffalo. See the wildlife as you ride the trails or a newborn calf by its mother’s side. At the end of the trail the “Trail Boss” will take you to a spring fed pond for a cowboy campfire dinner consisting of a 14-16 ounce hand cut rib eye steak, potatoes, grilled corn on the cob, and Dutch oven cobbler all cooked over mesquite. After a relaxed setting under the stars we will take you back to the Main Lodge.

STAY….CATION AT THE RANCH

The West Texas Ranch Family want you to share their ranch with you.  There is nothing like a West Texas Sunset and breathing that fresh country air to soothe your soul and clear your mind. We invite you to come out, stay at your own private ranch house, soak up the quiet and do what you want to do, when you want to do it! You may want to enjoy star gazing, read a good book, fly a kite, go hammocking, fishing, nature hiking, swimming at a spring fed pond…… all at your own pace. No clocks to look at here! You can do as much or as little as you want.

FISHING AT SPRING LAKE

The above image pictures the largest of the spring fed ponds at Ranger Creek Ranch. This pond is fed by fresh water springs that keep it clear year round and at a constant water level. The pond was built in 1964 and was stocked with catfish and bass. At the edge of the pond lies a small camp area with benches provided along with a boat to maneuver around the pond to catch the BIG ONE.

Other ponds are available for fishing also. Ranger Creek Ranch ponds have produced 16 pound catfish and trophy 7-8 lb largemouth bass.
Daily rate is $25 per person.  

 

BIRD WATCHING

This ranch spends a great deal of time and money to develop habitat suitable for nesting for many different types of game and non-game birds. The result is a Bird Watchers Paradise. There is really not a bad time of year for guests to come to the ranch to watch for birds they will not likely see in their city environments.
