Dogs Meet Cookie and Pete 

For an up-close interaction with animals, just take a stick down to the lake...and throw!

Take time to fish at one of our eight stocked lakes.  While there, keep an eye out for beaver, River Otter, dragonflies and shore birds such as Great Blue Heron, Egrets, and Kingfishers.  Over ten miles of woodland nature trails complete our Texas spiritual retreat experience for hikers, fishermen, and bikers alike.

Sit back, enjoy and reconnect with nature as you observe the native wildflowers and abundant ranch life.  Or, as you walk, hike, or bike through the woods and open grasslands, keep an eye out for some of the interesting butterflies, dragonflies, mammals and birds that call these woods home. YOU are in for a visual treat at our Texas family retreat.
