Lone Mound Ranch is an idyllic, high plains, year round, working cattle ranch with a varied terrain that provides amazing 30+ mile views from atop the 1/4 mile long mesa to hiking the 3/4 mile long draw that cuts through the rolling hills. We have RV sites with 110 outlets for $10, 30 amp for $30 and 50 amp for $50 up by the highway or campsites available from groves of elm and evergreens to higher, dramatic elevations with inspiring, expansive views. You may want to visit our on-site ranch store for all cuts of our grass-fed beef and more! Cabins and remote camping sites include campfire rings for grilling and outdoor pets are welcome. If traveling with your horses, pens are available along with miles of unpaved, remote, county roads to explore the varied landscapes. You can expect to encounter, both on the ranch and off, white tail, mule deer, turkey, hogs, coyotes, quail, dove, road runners and friendly locals always ready to stop and chat. We love meeting people and welcome new friends to join us doing all things ranch related, from feeding cattle and horses to improving infrastructure. Whether you're looking for souvenirs or wish to really experience the heart of Lone Mound Ranch we offer grass-fed beef by the lb, free range chicken eggs by the dozen, pastured goat milk, cheese, butter and ice cream & in season a variety of organic veggies to smother in butter for the grill! All organic and non-gmo. We also have a local soap maker that uses our goat milk to produce artisan soaps available for sale. We invite you to come as a guest and return as a friends.

Great option in the area
Very well organized. Property was easy to find. There was a welcome kit with information available. I left early in the morning and so did not have a chance to meet the host.

Great place for tent camping. Feels very private and safe with beautiful land all around you. Had a small table and fire ring on site which was a very nice. Sky was beautiful at night and the host was very responsive.

Perfect for peace quiet and stars
Nice quiet spot not far off the highway Powered site (was a surprise we were expecting no power) no water (was fine we had plenty and were advised) no neighbours Bought some meat and a salsa both delicious cooked up a quick main meal with noodles Probs a perfect over night stay if you are wanting somewhere where you can see the sky and stars with peace and quiet

Remote Barn House Lone Mound Ranch
Sleeping in the barn!
Wide open space awaits you at Lone Mound Ranch. We had a great time riding the four wheelers and horses. We loved having the deck off the front bedroom, even with the unusually rainy weekend. The house is comfortable with plenty of room for 4 people and a dog. The kitchen has everything you need, but keep in mind there is no dishwasher, if that is important to you. Lana is a great host, and we hope to visit again.

Remote Bunkhouse - Lone Mound Ranch
Excellent nights stay.
A gorgeous piece of property with a nice little cabin to spend some time at. Everything was as described and the host is amazing. I stopped by for one evening as part of a longer trip and told my wife we needed to make this a destination. Plus if you get a clear night be ready to see a boat load of stars.

Horse Back and Quads!
Our Fourth time out and it keeps getting better and better. My daughter loves the horses and the lessons that they give. This was our first time renting quads and wow, they did not disappoint! We went into back country and got pretty muddy but had a blast. Enjoyed all the coyotes at night! Tranquil and it just makes you feel at one with nature.

Lana was super responsive and made everything about our stay easy. I tried to book the ‘most convenient spot’ while on a long trip with kiddos, pulling in late. The property is a quick trip from I-40, easy to find and access. Loved everything about our very quiet stay!

Remote, private campsites!
I loved that it was truly remote and private. Lana's instructions were very useful and helped us get to the right place. There was a little confusion as we came in late and she had someone else watching the store for her, so we didn't connect in person, but it all worked out in the end. One thing that could improve the experience for campers would be marking the sites on the land a little better and making sure maps were available at the gate. We fumbled a little not knowing where we were headed in the dark. But when the morning sun came up we got to walk around the perimeter and see the beautiful land at the mesa. It was wonderful. We left with a lot of red dirt dust on our shoes and gear and tons of photos!!

I needed a place to sleep for the night and Lana’s land fulfilled that. The ground itself was great for my tent spikes. They went in easily and held strong. There wasn’t anyone else there so Lana let me pick whatever camp spot I wanted. Which was really cool of her. She was right in saying the gps doesn’t take u to the right spot. I typed in the address she gave me and it took me close, but not exact. I actually had to go north to the neighboring gate and that’s where it was. It had the lone mound ranch sign on it. Everytime I called her she answered within a couple of rings and was patient in helping me with any questions I had. Definitely give her a call or message here if questions come up. Overall this was a great site and I would recommend it.

Unobstructed horizon gives a big sky effect. Lana was really accommodating and responded quickly to messages, allowing us to upgrade to the bunkhouse with a/c when we realized the temps were gonna be super hot.

Great boon-docking stay!
Really awesome property, beautiful and secluded. Met Lana and her daughter and had great conversation at their country store. Bought some ground beef and sirloin and it was amazing! So are the farm fresh eggs and the goat milk caramel!! Yum! We had a great stay, really loved waking up in the morning surrounded by the valley.

Instructions were perfect for finding it - they left the light on for me as I was a late arrival! The bedroom was neat and cool and my dog was free to roam in the morning. Wish I could have stayed longer and met y’all!

Such a cool experience camping at Lone Mound Ranch! Would highly recommend for those wanting a rustic no nonsense primitive camp experience. Enjoyed the cows walking around and a beautiful sunset. We bought ground beef from Lana and cooked burgers on open fire! So quiet after sunset—really enjoyed the peaceful vibe. Left the next day with more ground beef and eggs. Lana is super nice and made us feel welcome and prepared. Already talking about a return!

Camping with Cattle!
Wonderful cattle ranch to hammock camp. We fell asleep listening to the farm dogs keeping us safe to waking up to a herd of calves eating and mooing right next to us. Beautiful sunset, full night sky of stars, and beautiful sunrise with the cattle! Lana and Chancie were super helpful. Thank you! Now we are on our way back to National Parks and then to home in Oregon.

Lana’s ranch is a beautiful and magical place to find peace and calm along a journey. We felt safe and snug when a storm rolled through and we watched the expansive sky of stars later. We got the pleasure to speak with her and her daughter as we bought some of the delicious and high quality goods from their store. I highly recommend!

Don't miss this place!
We stayed in campsite 1 - 'The south trees' There is so much to love here. Cicadas in the daytime, crickets at night and all. the. birds. in the morning. Beautiful sunset, beautiful stars, beautiful sunrise. There were friendly cattle that laid under the trees and watched us back our 29' trailer in to their shady spot, a horny toad, and awesome birds nesting in the highest branches of one of our trees. (google tells us they're scissor tail flycatchers). We took walks up the mesa and through the ravine. Wish we had had more time! Lana was quick to respond to our last minute request to book. We're so glad we found this special place!

Had an amazing evening at Lone Mound Ranch and I can't say enough good about Lana and team for accommodating a last-munite day-ahead booking. Not only was the reservation accepted... but Lana agreed to thaw some meats for us and we were able to have a great cookout over a campfire. The evening was cloudy, but our spirits were extremely high as the sky got dark and we sat around the fire... and then suddenly... the clouds opened up and we were treated to an amazing sky view in addition to all of the other experiences mentioned by other guests... everything from coyote howls to amazing sunrises. If you're driving through Texas... put this place on your list for tent or RV camping! Ask ahead about having some meats ready and plan a cookout!

Lana was great. The ranch was absolutely beautiful. We were making our way west from Rhode Island and this was our favorite stop so far. Even stocked up on fresh eggs and great salsa that we will be using for the rest of our trip.

Earth & Blue Sky All to Myself
WOW. This was my very first Hipcamp experience, and I am hooked. By coincidence, Chancie (& a couple of pups) met me at the gate; she told me I was the only guest that night, so was welcome to camp anywhere I wanted. “Drive around, take a look, and camp anywhere that suits you!” I did just that: picked a spot near some trees by the big wash. The light and color were dazzling — especially that orange earth underneath big blue sky. Some of the cattle seemed curious about me; though they kept their distance I enjoyed their company. Distant coyotes serenaded me several times over the course of the night. In the morning while I was gathering my things in my RoofNest, a massive raptor flew right by just a few feet from me. I’m still in awe that I had this place to myself. Would come back in a hot minute.
