Between the ranch activities and the amazing surrounding landscape glampers and pets will have no lack of adventure and fun. For pets' safety—and to protect the property's wildlife and other visitors—pets must be leashed when outside. Many visitors never leave the ranch, they spend their time hiking the pet-friendly trails, enjoying the scenery from the front porch, or fishing in the catch-and-release catfish pond.
High Hope Ranch provides passes to the local swimming pool at Oakdale Park. Oakdale Park is proud to have one of the largest swimming pools in the state of Texas called “The Plunge” 0151it's a great place to take the kids on a hot Texas day. The hosts can provide information on local restaurants, shops, and attractions for any guests who wish to venture outside the ranch to explore the surrounding area.
For a little bit of history, guests just need to visit the Paluxy Heritage Park in Glen Rose. It is a final resting place for several historic dwellings from an earlier time in Somervell County. There is a log home, an early stone home, an early school house, and several other historic structures to visit and study. Paluxy Heritage Park is a great place to relax or enjoy the river walk.
The ranch also has discount tickets for Fossil Rim and the Promise.
