Our family visits to the Dixie Dude Ranch has been my favorite memory as a child. The family meals, the people that run the ranch, and the wonderful accommodations make this the perfect family vacation. My grandmother took me there for a week each year, and I never wanted to leave. You become family, as a guest. The trail rides,... More

I cannot say enough good things about my vacation here. Great food, great trail rides, and great nightly entertainment all added up to a wonderful stay. I stayed in Rope 'n and sat on the back and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset every evening and enjoyed star gazing well into the night. I was pleasantly surprised to meet people from all... More

We went out for a 1 hour trail ride with our two kids, ages 8 and 5. This is the only place we found that would let me ride double with the 5 year old. We all loved it. Would highly recommend.

We spent two days at the Dixie Dude Ranch during a weeklong trip to Texas. The ranch was hands-down the best part of the trip. There were a couple of other families with children and my children really enjoyed playing with them. I liked that they could run off and play safely without constant supervision. They spent most of their... More

We have visited twice, both stays two nights, and we really enjoyed it. The staff has all been very nice. The rides are great for our family with small kids. We've been riding double with our 2 and 4 / 5 (first/second visit) year old girls and our 6 / 7 year old son was riding alone. The kids loved... More

The staff couldn't be nicer and it is charming in a rustic way--very much like a real ranch. The food was excellent Texas country fare, great BBQ and a fried chicken Sunday lunch, complete with deviled eggs and pickles. Horseback riding was a great experience.

Rustic atmosphere full of family pictures - family owned for 100 years- We just went for the day but wished we had booked an overnight stay. Great family memories and cowboy pictures to remember for years to come
