It's the oldest dude ranch in Texas, and you really feel like you've walked back in time. Great staff, great food (best fried chicken in town!), great wranglers and some nice Hill Country hills to ride horseback in. Highly recommended.

The Dixie Dude Ranch is perfect for families with children, they have easy-going horses and gentle rides. We loved the rustic cabin with its bunk beds and porch swing. There was also a pool and a hot tub! There's lots of things for the children...More

Nothing like riding in the Texas hills, enjoying the trails, and staying for a brisket lunch. Overnight possibilities as well.

If you love good home cooked meals, quiet country life, and horseback riding then you need to spend considerable time at Dixie Dude Ranch. It's a blast from the past with Wifi only in the lodge, truly refreshing. It is clean, neat and comfortable. Cute...More

The people were very friendly and helpful. The horseback riding was awesome and the trails short or long, and very scenic. I also went hiking the alien rock loop but got lost on the way back after passing the "6666" trail sign and passing through...More

The people here are really nice so it pains me to have to write this but the overall experience was quite poor. The price is extremely expensive for what you get - mediocre accomodations, a lackluster trailride with very very lax security (i.e. no helmets...More
