  • The ranch is: 580 acres of grassland/ 100 acres of woods/ 7 ponds; with cows, a donkey, horse's. There is enough to spend 4-8 hours riding without getting bored. All trails are easy. You can find hard trails, but there are easy trails to get around. There are some more challenging trails, if you have the ability.

The ranch is 15 miles from: a 60,000 acre wildlife refuge, wichita mountains, mt. scott, Medicine Park, and Ft. Sill. (see links all the info)
Restaurants, (over priced) grocery, fast food, andgas: is located in Elgin, OK (5 minutes from campsite). Walmart is 15 miles away.
Also, there is the Comanche Spur Casino, 5-10 minutes form the campsite.

  • Turn back East, towards the Holy City in the refuge. (stay for about 20-30 min). *look for buffalo, deer, longhorn, other critters.
  • Go to the lake, right next to the holy city in the refuge. (10-20 min)
  • *there are some off-road trails, for us to explore.
