Stargazer's dream! The fenced family ranch is perched on high ground, surrounded by thousands of sparsely populated acres. Only 6 RV slots nestle against a backdrop of thick vegetation with walking trails. Electric, water and septic are available on site. We rent small cabins with kitchenettes, and offer outdoor cooking sites. Primitive camping is welcome, but restroom and showers are still under construction.
Turtle Ranch is a developing youth science center dedicated to wildlife and conservation. Our main attraction is two 180 lb tortoises, but there is a plethora of animals, wild and domestic. Our year round feeders attract whitetail deer, javelina, hogs, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, armadillos, rodents and snakes. Our catch and release pond fish include catfish, smallmouth bass, alligator gar, perch and carp. The pond is a breeding area for red-eared slider turtles and a variety of non-venomous water snakes.
For bird watchers, the predominant species are roadrunners, dove, quail and blackbirds. The pond attracts cranes, a variety of ducks and other birds. The camping area supports a large cardinal population, woodpeckers and a wide variety of songbirds. The region also hosts green jays, hawks, owls and bald eagles.
The property is vegetated with mesquite trees, prickly pear cactus and other treacherous plants. All activities here-- including pond swimming-- are primitive, and risks are assumed by the adventurer. BBQ areas are provided, with mesquite wood. All fires must be in approved areas.
The Kickapoo Casino, the largest casino in Texas, is only 20 minutes away, as is the Port of Entry to Piedras Negras, one of the safest border towns in Mexico.

Very good hospitality! Theresa and Orlando are top notch people doing whatever they can to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The property is a bit of a rescue ranch with many different types of animals. I definitely recommend this camp!
Great overnight stay
Theresa was helpful in guiding my Shuttle Bus to a level gravel full hookup Pad. Her instructions were spot on. The gravel road in was smooth but going out, after a winter rain fall, the road was a little slippery from the muddy sand. We had no problem though. If staying close to Laredo, I would recommend staying here.
absolutely incredible people & hosts with amazing kids
theresa & orlando have created a wildly fun, informative, and out of the ordinary environment for guests to enjoy on a spacious ranch
there’s catch/release fishing, hiking trails, shooting range, and plenty of animals to engage with— my favorite being giant turtles you can feed— as well as other activities
all the amenities are there. private bathroom/shower, cold a/c, cable in a spacious apartment
