WONDERFUL! As a person with not a ton of outdoor experience, this was the place I needed to go. I was guided around the land, given tips on wildlife and plants. Beautiful land, no light pollution so the stars really come out. Plenty to do on the land and it’s very well kept. They even had a ranch dog running around checking on us while we were out there and it was adorable. Will definitely be back here soon.

Blackland Ranch is awesome for primitive camping! Our hosts were great and very informative. It is impotant to know that there is a different area for parking. The hosts will give you a ride to camp on UTVs. The fishing was great. Beautiful landscape, hiking trails, and a Lama to boot! 10/10 Will return.

Wooded area with nature trail in the rear portion of the ranch. Hosts were informative and friendly. My young girls enjoyed the fishing ponds and nature trail. Very convenient from Dallas.

I enjoyed my stay at Blackland Ranch! Such a welcoming place. The only thing I wish I would’ve known is that you cannot drive up to your campsite. Which it may have been on the info listed, and I missed it. Overall I had a great stay!

Just what we were looking for. Lanita went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We had a nice secluded camp site with access to trails and an open field.

Lanita's property is HUGE so it made us feel very much away from the city and secluded at our own campsite.

Highlight of our trip:
The night when we were there the sky was so clear so we set up a blanket at night on the big open field next to the village to star gaze. We saw many shooting stars and even got to see the milky way.

On the property there is a meditation garden, a village, trails, little swamp pond and another pond for fishing.

Friendly Notes:
Meditation Garden: Bring a mat to sit on if you are wanting to meditate there. I attempted in the morning but the morning dews made me change my mind.

The Village: For running water and to use the toilet you can walk to the village. In the village Latina also has rooms/another healing circles set up for classes she held. (Although we had the campsite closest to the village, we still preferred to use the wilderness as our toilet for convenience)

The Swamp: A nice wooded trail that you can walk to the swamp!

Pond: The pond near the village is where you can go fishing.
