Christine is a stupendous host! My daughters had the best time on the freshly mowed trails and keep talking about all the animals!! She had a great recommendation for breakfast (Cattleman’s)! She even helped us caravan all our camping gear we packed (which was too much). Definitely top notch experience and the girls are ready to go again!

This place was beyond and above 5 star hospitality! Christine was exceptionally gracious towards my son & I, who had arrived a little later than planned for - and right in the middle of the Ranch's Dinner Feed time. We were provided a wagon to haul our gear to the wonderfully secluded camp site. And later Christine took us on a mini farm ride in her Polaris, which my son loved, loved, loved! She even let us pick tons of fresh greens from her garden, invited us in where she made this vegan mama a fresh herb vinaigrette to accompany her dinner. AND farm fresh eggs for my non-vegan son! Soooo delicious! She answered every single one of my autistic son's endless questions and never grew tired or lost patience with him. Beautiful sunset and sunrise, amazing animals and DEFINITELY won't forget meeting them all! Made so many special memories and hope to be back soon!

Me and another dad spent a weekend night at the ranch with our daughters. Christine was extremely nice. Campsites are secluded enough from each other to provide privacy. I would highly recommend this place and would love to visit again.

Our family had such a fun night camping out here! Our kids loved the animals and Christine is such a kind, welcoming host. Enjoyed the stars in the night sky and the coyotes howling at night. So close to home, and yet we felt like we were way out in the wilderness. Great for a quick escape from the city.

Texas Prairie and Fiber Ranch is a wonderful place to spend some time away from the daily grind. I took my 9 yr old son on a perfect spring day. The campground is in the back of host Christines property. Up front are many cool animals to interact with such as chickens, goats, alpacas and dogs. Christine is a fantastic host. She is friendly and was more than happy to teach us about her ranch. The campgrounds are secluded behind a row of trees and brush. There are trails cut out to explore in the immediate area, however you can also delve into a large wooded area further back. Our experience was definitely memorable and we plan on returning frequently.

We were looking for a reasonably close location to Dallas to getaway an evening for my son and me. We scheduled to camp with Christine and she was an incredible host. She was there to welcome us when we arrived and showed us all the camp sites which are nestled behind a tree line and very private, as well as let us borrow her wagon to carry our gear to our chosen site. There are several campfire rings set up and she can provide wood, or you're welcome to forage for dead wood on the property. The next morning, Christine gave us a tour of her farm which was simply amazing to see. The goats were incredibly friendly as were the guardian dogs. The alpacas were shy until they realized you had some treats for them! Afterwards, Christine directed us to the Cattleman's Cafe in Blue Ridge nearby which had some great grub. My son and I had a great time and we would definitely recommend this to others.

Christine gave us a great tour with the animals. She knows the character traits of each animal and she gave us lots of information and tell very hearty stories about her own alpacas and goats. My kids loved it.
