Visit the area where the last, great Comanche War Chief battled the army in an epic struggle for a way of life.  Walk the land where cattle rustlers were hanged by the legendary Colonel Charles Goodnight.  Follow the path traveled by early Spanish Explorer, Francisco De Coronado, in his search for the fabled 7 Cities of Gold.


If your heroes have always been cowboys, and you dream of a place where transportation is horseback; of wide open spaces – far from the city lights;  of a simpler time – where men were as tough as the land they worked;  of exploring breathtaking country and real Western adventure; then…. your dream can come alive!


Elkins Ranch invites you to share in a celebration of the American West.  To turn back the hands of time and stand in the footsteps of the past; to step out of your City Duds, into the cowboy’s boots and into the Real West!  We promise to provide some of the most memorable moments of your vacation!
