Campground review - Beaumont Ranch

I had been searching for a ranch with RV hook-ups in Texas. Mostly what I was finding was RV Parks with the word ranch in their name. Not what we were looking for. After several weeks oninternet searching I came upon a gem of a place called the Beaumont Ranch. We had a blast and give it whole hearted recommendation.

Cleanliness - 9 - Keep in mind this is a ranch so there was a horse pile here and there. They get them cleaned up pretty fast though. Nothing near the RV park.

Bathrooms - 9 - The only reason this is not a 10 is because the bathrooms were pretty far away. We were given access to the bathrooms at the ranch guest rooms. They were awesome. Stone walls, huge showers, and one had a bath surrounded in stone with a waterfall coming into it. Tanner took advantage of the bath.

Facility fun - 10 - Fishing, paddle boats, an old western town and a great playground were all free with the stay. Also for a price you can go horse back riding (Patsy and I took turns on a trail ride with Blake and Tanner), on a cattle drive, on the zip line, learn how to rope a calf and some other fun cowboy stuff. There is also a restaurant on site that serves food on Thursday - Sunday nights. There is also a full service spa at the ranch.

Facility usefulness - 7 - Dump station, no full hook-ups, showers. No laundry.

Nearby attractions - 7 - Fort Worth and Waco are 60 minutes away, Dallas 90 minutes.

Staff - 8 - We got to meet a few of the staff including our quiet Cowboy Trail guide Raul. Everyone was very nice.

Natural surroundings - 9 - You can see for so far into the horizon, yet there are hills too. We loved watching the sky at night, so big.

Roominess 10 - There was only one other RV there. The sites are fairly decent in size, but no picnic tables or anything. The RV park is either an afterthought or a new addition. This is a ranch

Value - 8 - we paid $20 a night, plus more for the trail ride.

Overall - 9
