As the song goes: The stars are bright, late at night, deep in the heart of Texas. A few billion stars are a key feature of our 150-acre ranch in central Texas. Pitch your tent near Serenity Pond, one of our most scenic spots on our working ranch and farm. This campsite is among a 50-acre field and set back a quarter-mile from the nearest farm-to-market road. It's buffeted by a grove of trees, so enjoy the peace and quiet, along with songbirds during the day or a lonesome train far off in the distance at night. A small grill is provided for cooking. Relax in a custom-made reclaimed wood chair and take in the brilliant stars.

We had such a great trip at this location. The Serenity Pond is really beautiful and it's located in the middle of a beautiful farm that really makes you feel like you're out in the middle of nature without being too inaccessible. Would say this is the perfect place for a weekend getaway if you're looking for something accessible but a little more primitive than a cabin getaway.

I couldn't have found a better place to relax on my days off. The sunrise and sets were amazing in the middle of this beautiful property. Ben is very accommodating; he even mowed a little area by the pond for us. Definitely going back!!!

This secluded pond made for a truly incredible campsite location. The sunset and sunrise views were truly spectacular. It was tucked back on a perfect part of the property where we had complete privacy. The only noises were the frogs and the fun calls of the coyotes. Ben, our host, was very hospitable. Our favorite farm member hands down was his loveable great pyrenees Morty, who loved to follow us around and happily played with our dog. We would be back to stay at this incredible campsite in a heartbeat!

Been has a beautiful ranch that offers a great private camp site next to a peaceful pond. Ben was a wonderful host, very considerate and welcoming.

It might be a good idea to bring firewood with you, as it was a bit of a challenge finding it near the site. The provided fire pit was nice and had a grate on top to help cook on.

It was our first time camping on a ranch and we would definitely do it again. It is much more private than state park camping.

This location was great! Ben and the farmhand Carolyn were nothing but helpful and super friendly (especially the doggo, Marty!) It was a nice place to get away for a day without having to travel far from home.

Ben was a great host, the site was just as described and expected. Ben and Morty (farm dog) greeted us, showed us around and gave us all the ins/outs for a great, private camp. Very accommodating for our last-minute getaway.

I really enjoyed my overnight stay at the serenity pond. Very quiet and peaceful and was just what I was looking for. Ben, the host seems like a great guy and his dog Monty is a good boy. There is nice new looking fire pit that was perfect for my night under the clear night skies. I woke to a beautiful sunrise. I felt extremely relaxed my entire stay. I definitely recommend coming out here if you're needed a place to get away from all of the noise of the city.
