You don’t have to travel far to get away. Texas is ripe with beautiful landscapes and ample room to explore. Just 90 minutes away from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, you’ll find Wildcatter Ranch, a one-of-a-kind 1,500-acre pristine Texas Hill Country ranch. 

The land of the North Texas Hill Country is rugged and beautiful with cactus and mesquite trees and rolling pastures for grazing. There’s room to stretch your legs, explore, and reset. If you’re itching to get away from the city or simply take in a change of scenery for a bit, Wildcatter Ranch is the place to do it.

As any Texan can attest, our love of Texas history runs deep. Just 20 miles from Wildcatter Ranch, some of the state’s most colorful pioneer history took place. Books and movies like Lonesome Dove and The Sons of Katie Elder have immortalized the tales of frontier forts, Indian massacres, outlaws, and cattle drives. The miniseries and several John Wayne movies even used the area as their set.

The spirit of the Old West is alive at Wildcatter Ranch. Each day, enjoy guided activities on the working ranch with local Texas cowboys. Explore the trails and Brazos River by horseback, one of the ranch’s main activities. Take a Jeep tour of the property or explore by foot on the hiking trails. Try your hand at clay pigeon shooting, archery, or tomahawk throwing. Take on the role of ranch hand as you participate in the daily longhorn cattle feeding, a true highlight each morning.

Please note, children must be 10 years of age to participate in horseback riding.

The Accommodations

Wildcatter Ranch sits on the top of a hill, providing stunning panoramic views of the hill country and Brazos River. Take in those views from the porch of your western-style cabin suite.

A buffet breakfast of home-cooked favorites like biscuits and gravy or fresh eggs and bacon give you fuel for exploring the ranch. In the evenings, enjoy hand-cut mesquite-grilled steaks at the ranch’s award-winning Wildcatter Steakhouse.

A dip in the infinity-edged swimming pool or hot tub is the perfect way to end a day.

A stay at Wildcatter Ranch is a refreshing break from our normal routines. Explore your world a little closer to home with Ker & Downey.
