Indoor + Outdoor Fire Place

  • Game Room
    The original Game Room was built in 1953 and remains the oldest building on the ranch. We’ve revamped the room with everyone’s favorite games. Test your pool shark skills on the billiard table or score high in a Ping-Pong or foosball tournament.
  • Fishing
    We have four ponds and the Pecos River for fishing. The ponds are walking distance from the cabins (approx. .25 to .5 of a mile). We’ve stocked the ponds with catfish and bass. The Pecos River is known to have fish around 25 lbs. Bring your own fishing gear. Fishing is available all day. Catch and Release only. Little ones under the age of 14 are required to be with a guardian at all times. We recommend sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat as well as closed-toed or water shoes. Important information regarding fishing licenses: A fishing license is not required to fish in the ranch’s ponds. You will need a license to fish in the Pecos River. If you are 16 or younger or born before 1931, you are not required to have a license.
  • Bird & Animal Watching
    Engage in bird and animal watching year round at the Chandler Ranch. A nature conservancy confirmed 152 species of birds migrate to this area of Texas throughout the year, and the summer months are very popular. Take time to trek the ranch’s adjoining trails for deer spotting or watch for wild animals such as foxes, bobcats, and mountain lions. Ask the ranch manager for binoculars before you go. Safety for you and the animals is our top priority. Always stay a safe distance from and never engage the animals.
  • Mules
    The mules are currently unavailable, as they are in the shop for maintenance and repairs. Guests may choose to bring their own motorized mule or equivalent.
  • Hiking
    Hiking the picturesque hills provides a good workout and a panoramic view of the Pecos River Valley. Wear a hat and sturdy shoes and don’t forget sunscreen and a jug of water. Watch where you step and don’t put your hands under ledges or rocks – you are in rattlesnake territory! Stay safe and always hike in groups.
  • Stargazing
    Take the constellations challenge and learn astronomy while visiting the Chandler Ranch. We’re lucky to have zero city light pollution, and the stars light up the sky like small fireworks. Did you know the Big Dipper is only a part of a larger constellation, Ursa Major, the Great Bear? Kids get a kick out of learning fun fact about the stars. They also enjoy playing a game of “connect the dots” making up their own constellations. After all, that’s what ancient sky watchers did long ago and those are the constellations we see today. Photographers should bring their tripod and camera to shoot the amazing night sky, too.
  • Camping
    Kids, grab a pop-up tent, flashlight, and sleeping bag! We want every child to witness the spectacular night sky. Sleeping under the stars is truly an amazing experience. Kids are welcome to sleep in a small tent outside your cabin. Please bring your own camping gear.
  • Court House
    The Court House was constructed in the footprint of the original Chandler Ranch tennis court and was completed in 2022. Guests will find the comfortable accommodations of three new upstairs bedrooms each with a private bathroom. Our state-of-the-art kitchen and common dining area are also located in the Court House. A breath-taking view, a gentle breeze and a tall glass of icy cold tea invite guests to relax on the wrap-around porch. On colder days, enjoy the warmth of the grand fireplace indoors or choose to tell stories around the fire on the patio.
  • Swimming in the Pool & Independence Creek
    We’ve refurbished the original 1940’s spring-fed swimming pool for our guests to enjoy a dip in the refreshing water. The Independence Creek flows near the swimming pool, and guests are welcome to enjoy it, too. It’s a good idea to bring water shoes for the creek; the bottom is a bit rough. Please note there is no lifeguard on duty. An adult must be present while children are swimming.
  • Kayaking & Canoeing
    Kayak or canoe the scenic Pecos River to experience the natural beauty of our region from a different vantage point. Kayaks and canoes are available to check out during the day. Life vests must be worn at all times. An adult must be present with children.
