Sometimes the buzz of the big city seems like a far cry from the rich and rooted nature of Texas’ past.  Luckily, for those seeking a rustic escape, Wildcatter Ranch is within reach. Etched into the North Texas countryside just 90 miles northwest of Fort Worth, Wildcatter Ranch presents a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in the shape of a fully operational 1,484-acre legacy ranch.


Have a taste of the classic cowboy lifestyle with a luxurious twist — this property combines western-themed cabin suites and upscale amenities, not to mention its permanently unobstructed views of the Brazos River and North Texas Hill Country.


You may be familiar with the Wildcatter Ranch by its rich reputation — given its extensive history chronicled in Lonesome Dove and dramatized in The Sons of Katie Elder, and as the subject of media coverage by high-profile publications like The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and USA Today, the Wildcatter Ranch draws international attention and has attracted guests from Britain to the Netherlands and all corners of the United States.


This recognition is only its fair due as the Wildcatter Ranch is a true dream destination. Its personal accommodations—a 15,436-square-foot main house—are unparalleled.




With 16 cabins and a 16-room hotel, it’s the perfect location to welcome friends and family, hold conferences and corporate retreats and host weddings, honeymoons, parties, reunions and vacations.


The 25,000-square-foot restaurant delights palettes with authentic Texan cuisine, while the two horse barns promise a wide range of active entertainment.


Recreation options include horseback riding, spending time at the archery range or clay shooting range, world-class fishing, winding down in the hot tub or therapeutic spa, exploring the 25 miles of hiking and biking trails or discovering Fort Belknap history.


The Wildcatter Ranch has a fabled past and, as a turnkey property, it is ready to give its new owners a beautiful present.
