Covid Update: We are open and hosting campers. I think that outside activities like our campsites are very safe. With that said I am keeping distance from all our guests. I may come by to say hello and tell about the site (sometimes this is not possible). If I do come by I will keep my distance from you and would appreciate it if you did the same. If you do not want me

Pitch your tent under the large canopies of ancient Post and Live Oak trees. Picnic table, fire ring, pit outhouse, and potable water (100 yards distance) make your stay more comfortable. You can drive directly to the site to make unloading your gear easy. There is access to the nearby Richardson River with a short walk. We have multiple ponds, valleys, hilltops, open pastures and brush land for you to explore. Plenty of wildlife calls this valley home including many different types of birds, deer, turkey, boars, foxes, bobcats, raccoons, opossums, and more! We are a working cattle and goat ranch as well as the beginnings of an eco-system agriculture orchard. In the vicinity you can enjoy a visit to Dinosaur Valley, Fossil Rim, Cowboy Capital Stephenville, Historic Granbury, antique shop Bluff Dale or visit the Vineyards, and much more! Enjoy the fresh air and serenity of this beautiful site!
Please no glass containers, shooting, or ATVs/dirtbikes at campsite. This is a pack it in, pack it out location. Please take trash with you and leave site clean. Also, no loud music at any time and dark time is quiet time. Thank you!
Note: There are currently three campsites on the property (Brookside, Ancient Oaks, and Richardson Creek). From Ancient Oaks campsite Richardson Creek campsite is about 150 yards away. There are trees between the two sites so each has privacy, but I put it in here just to let everyone know.

Places to see near EcoRich
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Eco Rich is not as much a farm or ranch as it is a South Texas paradise. Nestled just inside the northern border of Hill Country, Eco Rich boasts not only swimming holes and acres of open range, but hundreds of years of rich history and a third generation landowner with the knowledge to boot. Emory is a self proclaimed “kind-of environmentalist" with a big heart for his land and for creating sustainable, scalable growing models that can help fight global warming. Every inch of the property is geared towards sustainability, right down to the tiniest details. If you get the chance to talk with Emory, bring a notepad and be prepared to listen and ask plenty of questions. Emory's love for the property has fostered an environment that is somehow both wild and totally accessible. It’s a place you can howl with the coyotes from beneath an oak grove without a single care. Even one night at Eco Rich is like a retreat that will totally rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit. Slow down, unplug, drink a whiskey or two, and enjoy the stay.
Emory was so welcoming! He guided us to our campsite even when we arrived late! Then he even offered to take us pig hunting. The campsite was secluded and blissful! It was a great time and I would definitely recommend.
Best primitive campground in Texas.Emory is very attentive and makes sure that his guests are comfortable .I loved the cattle and fishing in the river.Lots of acreage for nature walks. I will sure be back again.
The property was great, with plenty to hike around and see. The site has everything we wanted, including enough trees to hang a tarp over the tent for a rainy weekend (not to mention a hammock, also great on a rainy weekend). Plus, Emory did a great job making us feel welcome and giving us some tips for exploring. We'll definitely be back.
Ancient Oaks was a nice primitive campsite. We appreciated the secluded environment which allowed us to have a fire and enjoy some stargazing. It was a great spot to hit during our cross-country road trip.
We loved it! I nearly don't want to get the word out about this place and keep to myself :-) The camp is beautiful under big ancient oaks and clean and there even is a private outhouse but the best part is that there is no light or noise pollution, which is rare to find in usual camping places and the other camping spots on the property are far away enough that you feel like you are alone. I would definitely go back there.
