Ranch Activities

We have scheduled activities every day of the week! If you miss something or want us to repeat something, ask and we will do our best to accommodate you! Many activities can be done anytime. These include the two large jumping pillows, swimming, water park/splash pad, fishing, maze, basket ball, sand volley ball, tether ball, gaga ball, video games in the Ranger Station ($.25) animal visits, and Putt Putt Golf. Our group campfire is a great way for families to wind down and roast marshmellows/smores! Ice Cream is always a good idea for the whole family! We have 20 flavors of BLUE BELL ice cream!! Have your family pick a fun activity from the list below- and start making your memories today!  We are a BYOB campground so you are welcome to bring wine to the Friday night fish/chicken dinner in the Grand Lodge or take a beer in a Koozie.

Our Campground Fishing pond is stocked with Catfish, Bass & bluegill hybrids and perch. So bring your fishing pole- or purchase a cane pole at the Ranger Station, and have a relaxing day of fishing with the kids!  Catch and release, no fishing license required! We have a covered dock as shade is important in Texas! You can check out paddle boat and canoes that you pedal and that turns the motor to move your fishing canoe!!! Beware of the Giant (metal) Crocodile, he sits on the bank and watches the fishermen!!!

horses

Miniature Horses

What else would you expect from a Texas Ranch! Our Miniature Horses are full of love and always welcome new friends! They love to eat but please only with a Ranger present.  Miniature horses tend to get fat easily.  It is very painful if they get too fat as it causes their feet to founder and it hurts!!  We have to limit what they eat and we don’t want anyone to get hurt accidently.  They are very friendly but they are large animals and we want everyone to be safe and have a great time!

Interactive water park/Splash pad

This is especially popular with the younger kids! It is fun for all ages! Watch the kids play or get involved and have some fun of your own! The park is interactive, so push, pull and pump extra fun into your visit through motion!  In our windy weather this can really use the water!  It is open daily from 12 pm to 7 pm so put it on your list so you don’t miss it!

Playground

Sign up in the Ranger Station if you want to play laser tag, paintball or z-tag.  Our Rangers will explain the rules, give you the equipment and lead you to the battle grounds!  We have 50 caliber and 68 caliber guns for paintball.  We have found kids and adults enjoy the 50 caliber guns so normally that is what we schedule.  If you want to play with the 68 caliber guns be sure to tell the Rangers!

Yogi Bear & Boo Boo Bear

Yogi Bear™ & Boo Boo™ show up often at the events scheduled in the Ranger Station.    This is a great time to get a hug and have your picture taken with them. Check the activities schedule by downloading “Campersapp” and use password “Yogiwf” to see where they will be.  In the summertime, the two bears often show up in the Ranger Station because they get really hot and like air conditioning!

Bubble Pool

This is a festive fun thing for all ages.  The pool fills with bubbles and since it is usually windy here, bubbles fly out and fill the air!

“Hey! Hey! Hay!” rides

Every weekend there are opportunities to tour the campground on our Hey! Wagon. It’s a great way to see Jellystone Park™ and spend time with family and friends! We have two hay rides, one with hay and one without we call it a Hey ride- so add some of your own, by yelling “HEY!” to each camper you see!-

Animal Interactions

Our Rangers will take you to meet our horses after the morning hayride.  The hayride drops you off at the horse corral where you will learn about our miniature horses, visit with our 7 dwarf Nigerian goats, Andy, the steer, chickens and our office rabbits, Chloe and Piper.  Our desert tortoise, Henry lives in the small green house across from the Ranger Station. Henry weighs about 55 pounds and loves to eat and walk around the Ranch and take pictures with our visitors!  Milo the goose lives in the fenced area with Henry and keeps a protective eye on Henry and Lucy, the small sweet black and white duck.  Be cautious with Milo, he will sometimes reach over and pinch you if you get too close!  We have 40 Silkie and Poland chicks that roam freely across from the Ranger Station.
