The vibe at Tate Farms Campsites
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
An absolute hidden gem! And being fairly close to the surrounding major cities, Tate’s farm is prefect for a weekend getaway. You will be greeted with a beautiful farm scenery, various livestock, and the most accommodating hosts. The campsite being situated on the other side of a 700+ acre farm gives you perfect privacy with more than enough room for activities. You can easily bring your own things to keep yourself entertained. If nothing else, exploring the property is another amazingly fun and free activity to do. Also, sharing the same grounds as the horses and cattle will provide you with some funny and unforgettable interactions. Overall an authentic farm style campsite, and we can’t wait for our next visit! Lastly, do Not forget to order the delicious home cooked breakfast.
Farm camping at its finest
They are overly gracious hosts who certainly have an eye for detail. The farm is 800 acres with lots of animals - horses, cows, chickens, pigs and even buffalo. Our toddler was ecstatic about seeing them all and even petting a few. They have showers and restrooms available on the farm and even firewood if you don’t bring enough.
We camped for one night in a pasture next to a little pond which was nice bc we brought a fishing pole. We brought our own tent so I can’t attest to the Safari tents they provide. We had a nice night and then the next morning Melissa brought us amazing homemade breakfast tacos with salsa and a thermos of coffee with fresh milk. Everything was amazing! We brought home some of their farms’s beef, honey and eggs which all look great as well. A fun experience just a short drive from Dallas!
Serene cattle ranch
Tate Farms is a peaceful, working cattle, horse, pig, chicken, and bison ranch run by two kind, hospitable people. I was very happy to be assigned the lake spot (the one in the listing) upon arriving and had grand ideas of how we'd spend our two nights and three days there. But Mother Nature had other plans: With 30 mph gusty winds and a temp drop from the 70s to the 40s (that we did not prepare for), my family (husband, mom, and two daughters ages 12 and 8) decided to pack it up after one night. I bet if I'd waited just two or three more months, this would have been an idealistic off-grid camping trip, but March was too soon as the weather is still unpredictable. A high note was the breakfast with tacos, salsa, coffee, fruit, and nuts. I suggest that you don't miss out on that. Also, know that your camp site will be in the midst of one of the beautiful paddocks, which translates that the space is wide open. This is cool because you are so close to livestock and makes singing "Wide Open Spaces" kinda fun but leaves you very much exposed to the elements (should there be any). Also, bring a tarp for your ground cover under your tent so you don't get cow patties on the tent. (Tarp is easier to clean.) If you're thinking about booking, do it, but I suggest between maybe May and October. And don't forget to order the breakfast and farm tour. They're doing pretty cool things out there.
Great camping, steak and hospitalit
I highly recommend Tate farms. We had an incredible experience camping. The site is beautiful and the hospitality was great. We bought some steaks from them and they were delicious. Two thumbs up and can’t wait to go back.
Our family loved Tate Farms! We stayed in a pasture all by ourselves on the edge of some woods. Our boys loved exploring the woods, driving the truck, petting the farm dogs, and horses. We fished in two of the ponds. The restroom were nice and at the front of the farm. The farm has a lot of great family photo ops with wooden porches, benches, cattle, etc.
Evan and Melissa Tate were very friendly hosts and took good care of us. We order Melissa’s taco breakfast which is made with their own grass-finished beef sausage, Coffee, fruit, and delicious cubits with candy pecans. Our boys are eager to come back!
Texas beauty the texan way
Melissa (so friendly and welcoming) met us with the extra provisions we chose (eggs and honey from their farm- so good) and showed us around. Lots of animals to see! The grounds are Texas beautiful, big sky, calm water reflecting the sky- we loved it! Plenty of room as campsites are far a part. We came early spring so we had as far as we could see all to ourselves! As we were leaving our kids asked if we can come back and I hope we get to again- it was a great and unique experience.
Tate Farms was a wonderful place to camp. Evan and Melissa were excellent hosts. They met us at the front entrance and brought us to a campsite on their farm that was very quiet and secluded, next to a lake. We camped on an open field, far enough from other structures to give the feeling of solitude, privacy, and seclusion on this vast ranch. They made sure we were aware of another site, where we could stay if we found it too windy where we were.
Evan gave us a tour of the farm during which he discussed the farms history,the various animals, how the different pastures are used, and how to interact with the cows and horses.
We enjoyed our stay at Tate Farms and highly recommend them.
