Pitch your tent under the large canopies of ancient Post and Live Oak trees. Picnic table, fire ring, toilet/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!

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.

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.
