My parents have never been to RCL, I couldn't wait to take them there. We had a wonderful dinner. My dad said he had "the best Sazerac of his life" that night. We stayed at one of the Ranch Estate houses. We enjoyed coffee while watching the sunrise and making smores during the sunset by a fire. The staff is always so friendly and helpful. They cannot wait until I bring them back!

Amazing experience. I can't say enough about the food. Absolutely amazing! Dinner and Breakfast come bundled with your room which makes everything so convenient. During dinner, the executive chef, Gerard Thompson took time to come speak with us - really made us feel at home. This is a great get away from the city. Would recommend 10/10!

My wife set up the family to take a trip to Rough Creek instead of travelling elsewhere for Thanksgiving. We stayed in a cabin near the skeet range. The room was clean and comfortable. We did have trouble getting the televisions to work, one would not turn on the other would not turn off, but the staff came out and sorted it the second day of our stay. The food at the lodge was really good. I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings and there was enough variety to keep the whole family happy. Thanksgiving day featured all the standards, Turkey, mash potatoes, etc. But with a definitely unique twist. Left stuff and wanting more at the same time. My son and I hunted hogs and ducks. I am not a big fan of the hog hunt as it is nothing more than driving around a penned area shooting them as they run. Lots of carcasses littering the area as well gave it a bit of surreal feel. Not my cup of tea. But the guide who drove the atv was hysterical and enthusiastic and worked to make sure we had a good time. We also did the trap shooting range. It brought out the competitive side in my son and he beat me each round. But the time there was great and the guide helpful, offering shooting tips that unfortunately worked better for my son than for me. We also went duck hunting. This was a highlight of the trip. My son had never done t before. We were driven out to a well made blind and the guide set out the decoys. He even had a trusty Lab to retrieve the ducks. We bagged a few, likely due to the lessons learned at the shooting range, and returned happy. The staff cleans the ducks for you, packs them on ice in a cooler and provided a great recipe for duck chili. I made it when we returned home and it is now a staple in our recipe book. Staff were also very helpful and attentive. There are some reviews that talk about price, but I think the level of service and quality of offerings warrants it. I think this would be a great place if someone from out of Texas or another country wanted to get a luxury view of what it is like out in the countryside.

The perfect country getaway. Our accommodations were outstanding, and our day of Upland bird hunting was spectacular. Watching the bird dogs hunt is worth the day in the field, and the birds are extra! If you enjoy getting away from the city, this is the place for wholesome family fun, shooting sports and hunting. Highly recommended.

For our third trip here, we took our grandchildren ages 8 and 6 for a two-night retreat. The kids love evening Kids Camp, where they have supervised play with other kids, do crafts, shoot indoor hoops, and watch movies. They chose to eat there both nights, so we enjoyed quiet dinners of the excellent food served at RC Lodge. Swimming and floating the lazy river cooled us down from the hot August days. We took advantage of the early morning coolness to fish at the stocked pond, which is always a hit. And we loved the recent addition of the dirt track for mini ATV’s, which our 8-year-old was able to drive with one of us as a passenger. He was thrilled! One suggestion for the Lodge is to add in more shaded areas for sitting outdoors throughout the property. As an added bonus to our fun weekend, we stopped at Dinosaur Valley Park on the way back to Dallas and were able to see archaeologists uncovering and making molds of the latest dinosaur tracks to be discovered from 113 million years ago, bringing history to life.

Rough Creek Lodge provides consistent excellence. It is expensive, but worth it. An easy 1.5 hour drive from Fort Worth, TX. If you ever wondered what Texas looked like before all the progress took over, go to the top of Gunn Mountain on the RCL property and take a look around. Stunning vistas. Reasons to go: 1. The breathtaking beauty of the property as far as the eye can see. 2. The staff, starting with Daniel as you pull up and are greeted at the Lodge entrance. 3. The food is unfailingly a perfect 10 every time. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner never disappoint. If I go one night, it get steak. More than one night, I may sneak in the almond-crusted salmon. My kid says the mashed potatoes are the best he's ever had. He's a huge quail fan as well. The new dessert item, banana brickle with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is worth a try as well. At breakfast, make sure to enjoy a pancake or three. 4. Two pools make certain everybody gets what they need. My 19-year old still loves the family pool thanks to the water slide and the lazy river. If looking for quiet romance, hit the adult pool. Attentive staff there at each to take your food and drink orders. 5. Speaking of drinks, they have a full bar with all the standards, but I recommend the Chalk Mountain margarita. Like the pancakes, you can't have just one. 6. Luxury is the name of the game. Rooms are super-comfortable and scream Texas luxury. 7. More activities than you could get around to in one stay. Wasn't always the case, but now you have pickleball, Top Golf style driving range, simulated round of golf inside, new bowling alley, axe throwing, archery, etc. For the outdoorsy types, you can clay shoot, live hunt, and the like. No matter what, rent one of their utility vehicles and go through the nature trail (aboout 6 miles) and make the required stop and climb the 137 stairs to the top of Gunn Mountain. Take in the stunning vistas and grab a handful of stones on the way up and try to chunk them into the steel drum positioned on the side of the hill. Trust me, it's fun. Also, I'd be remiss to not mention the petting zoo. Go say hi to llamas, mini-donkeys, a pony, and lots of cute goats. This place is ideal whether for family fun or couples romance. Get there soon!
