Resort Pool & Waterfall
When you rent one of our cabins, you have access to our swimming pool area with a beautiful waterfall filtration system.
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!
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, ducks and geese. You can also get up close and personal with our kangaroos, potbelly pigs, turkeys and chickens! This is a special encounter that only our cabin guests can enjoy.
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!
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!
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 and the cost to fish is $10.00 per fishing pole/line.
Deposit is half of the daily room rate and is required per cabin, per night booked. It confirms your reservation. The deposit will be charged to a credit card upon booking and the remaining balance is charged to that same card seven days from check-in.
If you cancel or move your reservation before 30 days of check-in: The deposit is fully refundable and you have the option to reschedule.
If you cancel or move your reservation within 30 days of check-in: You lose the original deposit but you are not responsible for the remaining balance.

We sell buckets of feed for the animals in the gift shop. This is the only feed you are allowed to give the critters. If outside food is brought into the park and fed to our animals, your card will be charged $100! There is no exceptions to this. Our animals are on a strict diet and whatever you sneak in could make them ill – in which case you would pay the vet bill!
