Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is an outdoor traveler's dream in Texas Hill Country, SW of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is a resort removed from everyday life that will satisfy your rustic taste in rooms and your gourmet taste in food. Located on 11,000 acres in the foothills of the picturesque Texas Hill Country, it is just 90 minutes southwest of Dallas Fort Worth, Texas. The Hill Country of Texas is known as the backyard playground for Texans who like to have fun and enjoy nature.

The ranch is an outdoorsman’s dream with skeet shooting, four-wheeling and horseback riding, in addition to guided hunts and fishing trips. Catch and release fishing on one of Rough Creek’s many lakes can be enjoyed by any guest.

For days where you are looking for something beyond wetting a hook or target shooting, answer the call of the wild with a hunting retreat. Hill Country Hunting Adventures offers fully guided hunts to meet the needs of experienced or beginner hunters. The whole family will enjoy spending quality time in the spa or play in the pool before meeting up with everyone at the lodge for a delectable meal of wild game.

Guestrooms and suites located in the main lodge make for a comfortable vacation in a rustic setting. Native stone, 60-foot ceilings, lake views, and a large outdoor terrace are a wonderful alternative to a traditional hotel. The private balconies with hand-crafted rocking chairs overlooking Mallard Lake make it the perfect place to come home after your day of outdoor adventures.

From fire pits and s’mores to fine dining and outdoor sports, Rough Creek Lodge and Resort provides a magnificent escape for your family getaway.
