About Us

Our Ranch

With an ideal South Texas location just 85 miles South of San Antonio International Airport in McMullen County, this privately owned, 4300 acre high fenced ranch offers a hunting and outdoorsman experience you will not find anywhere else!

Along with superb deer hunts, we offer wild hog, dove, quail, turkey, varmint and duck hunts, coupled with an absolutely awesome bass fishing experience in 40+ tanks and lakes!

Hunting and fishing is only part of the unique High Lonesome Ranch story. All guests stay in our Lonesome Dove Village. Specially designed, built and furnished to recreate the Western setting of early frontier days, Lonesome Dove Village will provide the very comfortable, well appointed guest accommodations and hearty meals you’ll want after a full day. Check out more details on the Longhorn Café Dining Room, Red Horse Saloon, Town Theater, Pool and Guest Rooms on the Lonesome Dove Village link!

People Says

I’ve been to many, many business conferences during my career, and I can’t think of a better place to have a corporate meeting than High Lonesome Ranch south of San Antonio. It is a wonderful getaway where employees can get better acquainted and bond with each other while attending training or management conferences. Our Board of Directors always looks forward to their annual retreat there as well. There is a lot to look at and enjoy in and around the Lonesome Dove town, and it’s relaxing to just walk around and enjoy the sights! Nancy and Charles are gracious and accommodating hosts who do whatever it takes to make a memorable experience for their guests with great food and snacks, comfortable and modern lodging, and ranch tours which showcase the ranch’s environmental conservation program. Shortly after arrival, our first time visitors to the ranch will inevitably say, “Wow, I already want to come back!”
