Cowboy Camp Out
An unforgettable event that is sure to create life-long memories for you and your family, the Cowboy Campout is a long awaited event at the Ranch. Every Memorial Day weekend, members and their family and friends celebrate a kick-off to summer with a night on the golf course. This isn't any ordinary camp out though. With more adventures than you could possibly think of, including archery, zip lining, bull riding, hay rides, fishing, panning for gold, picnic games and even a good 'ol Texas BBQ- this is more than just your typical camping adventure. It's an Old Ranch Camp Out! Click on the video to see just what we do at the Ranch.
Guest Fee Payment
Event entrance charges will be directly charged to your member account, including guests. There will be a cash and member charge bar available at the camp site.
Tent Site Assignment
Old Ranch will send out your tent assignment about 1 week in advance. Please let us know who you would like to camp next to in advance so that we can accommodate your party. Tent sites will be assigned in 10ft x 10ft spaces.
Old Ranch will provide large bags for your belongings and bag tags with your camp site number so Old Ranch staff can easily transport your belongings to the correct camp site location. This will ensure a smooth arrival. Bags and bag tags must be picked up at the Front Desk Tuesday, May 22 - Saturday, May 26.
So you may enjoy more of the Camp Out this year, you may start setting up your tent sites as early as 2:00pm. Activities start at 3:30pm. Drop off is located at the end of the parking lot near the Golf Bag Drop area. There will be signs directing you where to drop off your items. For example, if your tent assignment is #23, then you will drop off your bags in the parking stall labeled #23. Hay rides will be given at the putting green to take you to the camp out.
All activities will be open at 3:30pm and will end between 7pm and 8pm. Songs by the camp fire will begin at dark.
A safe camping experience is our ultimate priority. Please maintain responsibility for the safety of your children at all times. Children under the age of 5 must wear a wristband, provided by Old Ranch, with their tent assignment and their last name.
As a reminder, there will be a full bar available to purchase alcoholic beverages, which can be either charged to your member account or paid for with cash only. All sodas, juice and water are complimentary. Coolers, ice chests and other alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
