White Lightning Ranch, only a 2-hour drive from Dallas, is nestled in the North East Texas woodlands, 9 miles from the historic little town Winnsboro, known for its farmers market, wine and art festivals, and home to the annual Autumn Trails.

Surrounded by the serenity of nature and singing birds, we want to welcome you to come and enjoy our land which has 10 acres of open fields and 40 acres of woodlands, with beautiful Cypress and Oak trees towering up into the fresh air.

White Lightning Ranch is a beautiful place to just come and relax or explore the nearby lakes of Cypress Springs, Bob Sandlin, Winnsboro, and Monticello. Lake Bob Sandlin's boat launch is situated 3 miles to the north of us and Lake Cypress Springs' closest boat launch is approximately 6 miles away.  We also offer sit-on peddle fishing kayaks and SUPs for rent. Alternatively, you are more than welcome to try your hand at catch and release on our very own stocked 2-acre pond.

White Lightning Ranch feels like you are hidden miles and miles from civilization, but the gentle swoosh of a vehicle passing by on the country road every not so often reminds you that you are only minutes from enjoying all the local attractions and shops.

I stayed for a weekend in early November and arrived in the late evening on my first night. I requested a tent rental as I didn't want to fumble with mine on a cold dark night. Not only was the tent setup but firewood was prestacked in the fire-pit and 5 gallons of water were available at my campsite for my weekend stay. More than enough. As a host, Darsi was fantastic. Quick with communication and attentive he embodied a true Texan spirt; very hospitable. The property was huge and this place is exactly where you want to take a first time camper for their first experience. Im sure a car could make it in and out but you'll have an easier time with a truck. If you're into fishing he has a well stocked pond on site. I had a successful time fishing for largies. If you want to try your hand at larger bodies of water there are two lakes a few minutes away from his property. Fisherman's paradise. You definitely want to visit if you're looking at sites in East Texas.

The small tent I was able to rent on the property.

We booked a last minute stay at the White Lightning Ranch and we had a blast! The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. They brought us extra water and firewood during our stay and were available for anything else we may have needed. The property is beautiful and so peaceful. We had a lot of success fishing in the pond and enjoyed the kayak and canoe. The camping sites feel private and secluded, yet not too far away from help if needed. We enjoyed our stay and plan to come back in the near future!
