Remember, we lock the Ranch gates at dark. If you are going to be out after dark, please let us know so we can make accommodations.
Groesbeck, is just a few minutes from the Ranch and is the closest town. We think Groesbeck is a nice place to visit with an Historic Downtown full of antique shops, a friendly grocery store (Brookshire’s with Beer & Wine), and a couple of Dollar Stores you will find plenty of things to see.
For the best home cooking in this part of Texas, we strongly suggest visiting Steven’s Diner located right next to Steven’s Grocery and Meat Market (about 1/2 mile west of the 164/14 intersection in town). The cost is low, the food is great, and the sweet tea is by far the best west of the Mississippi.
** Also check out Historic Fort Parker or Fort Parker State Park between Groesbeck and Mexia, just a short ride from the ranch.**
