The amazing goatel of texas!
I had a absolute blast at the Goatel of Texas. My little sister and I stayed for a couple of days but we had so much activities to do on a gorgeous plot of land that is next to a river.
When we first got there, it was pretty hot during the day so we stayed inside until it got a little bit cooler. We got to enjoy the view of other people doing Goat Yoga in the mean time while in the second floor of the barn which was clean, cool, and charming. They provided a lot of amenities such as snacks, television, a fridge, sink, a fold out bed, a downstairs shower, AC cooling, and a twin size bed. It felt REALLY cozy and nice there.
Once everything cool down, we got to interact and play with the goats, dogs, chickens, turkey, ducks, and geese the entire day. The animals were super sweet and had a bunch of land to play on. My sister and I had a massive grin the entire time as we were watching the goats climb on buildings and getting to pet them. It was like our own personal zoo for 24 hours.
From there we went fishing (brought our own fishing poles) and even though we couldn't catch anything, we could see that there were plenty of fish in the water jumping around. Across the river, we also had a awesome view of cows grazing and was just absolutely relaxing.
Linda then helped us set up a massive campfire that allowed us to cook hot dogs and smores! I then stayed up for hours just staring and tending to the camp fire by placing fresh cut logs onto it. I couldn't get enough of the mesmerizing fire and staring at it's beautiful colors.
In the morning, they let us feed the goats with fresh cow milk and hang out with the animals before we checked out.
Linda and Steve were absolutely amazing hosts. They were super down to earth interesting people who had plenty of stories to tell and made us feel at home even though it was our first time camping.
I 100% will be booking another trip here and bringing more of my friends and family along in the near future. I recommend this place to anyone who would like to have their own personal zoo for a few hours combined with beautiful scenery and amazing hosts.
