All Cabin Amenities

Complimentary Tour

For obvious reasons – the guided tour and petting zoo are currently unavailable. However, you can drive through in your own car to still have loads of fun with the animals! (This will be the case as long as the lock down is in place.)

Cabin guests receive tickets for the drive-through for free! You can enjoy the drive as many times as you’d like, as long as it is daylight outside. During the drive you’ll interact and feed hundreds of animals! You can learn about each one on our Drive-Through tab!

The tickets supplied to you at check-in are not transferable to other guests and must be used during your stay if you chose to enjoy the drive through

Resort Pool & Waterfall

When you rent one of our cabins, you have access to our swimming pool area with a beautiful waterfall filtration system.

Per Governor Abbott, the pool is currently available only to 50% capacity (this is about 20 people) – and it is on a first come, first serve basis! 

There is a small wading pool that’s perfect for your little ones and a deeper pool for older kids and adults. The pool overlooks the center pasture and lake area, where you can watch all of the roaming animals, as well as the breathtaking view of the surrounding hill country.


Equipped with a covered cabin house, slide, and several swings… it’s sure to be a hit with your lil’ ones.

We also have a covered dining area next to the playscape, so adults can monitor from there!

Community Patio

Here you’ll find a billiards table equipped with pool sticks and balls. It’s perfect for some friendly competition.

Not a pool shark? That’s OK, you can still enjoy our projection screen TV! It’s fully equipped with DirectTV channels and surround sound.

Not to mention, you’ve got an amazing view of our entire cabin area and surrounding pastures of freely roaming critters.

Lake Carlisle & Petting Zoo

We have a fenced-in section so that you can safely walk to Lake Carlisle to enjoy some catfish-fishing!

On your stroll, you’ll encounter free roaming deer, pot-belly pigs, ducks and geese. You can also get up close and personal with our kangaroos, turkeys and chickens! This is a special encounter that only our cabin guests can enjoy.

Catfish Fishing

Lake Carlisle is situated directly in front of the cabin area… and it is stocked with huge catfish!

You may enjoy fishing here but it is catch and release. We don’t supply any fishing gear so you will want to bring your own poles/bait/tackle.

Outdoor Grillin’

All of our cabins are equipped with a personal charcoal barbeque pit. Bring along your favorite utensils, charcoal and lighter fluid!

We also have a Texas-sized wood-fired barbeque pit by the community patio thats perfect for entertaining a larger crowd.

Additionally, all cabins have personal picnic tables for outdoor dining!

Nightly Bonfires

Of course, we have a fire pit so that you can setup for a quiet camp fire to cook up some s’mores or hot dogs.

We provide plenty of wood behind the racks, along with a container with starter fluid.  You can usually find a stick lighter in your cabin, but you’ll never be too safe to bring one along with you.

Hill Country Views

All of our cabins have personal sitting areas on the front deck. These were constructed with the hopes that you would enjoy the beautiful surrounding Hill Country with your loved ones. We want you to see exactly why we picked this location for our beautiful animals to call home.

Our favorite view can be found atop the top balcony of the Elk Lodge, Cabin #5!

Basic Amenities

All of our cabins are equipped with free WiFi, Direct TV, A/C units for the hot summers and propane heaters for the winter months.

We work hard to maintain all of these free amenities and keep our as pricing low as we can. However, we do reserve the right to alter these amenities at any time without notice as we see fit for our establishment.
