THE LODGE

Enjoy Rustic Luxury

The Lodge was the original “ranch house” for the property and – with a few modifications – now serves as a bed and breakfast. A cathedral-style living room with a massive stone fireplace and walls of glass opens onto a stone veranda overlooking a popular wildlife feeding area. Herds of addax, sable, gemsbok, waterbuck and deer can often be seen making their daily migration around the Lodge and Foothills Safari Camp pastures, plus you’ll get an up-close look at wild turkeys.

You may bring your group of four people (maximum) to enjoy these auspicious surroundings with plenty of room for sleeping bags for the kids.

Surrounded by animals

Our Foothills Safari Camp is located a half-mile further inside Fossil Rim from The Lodge.

Custom-designed quarters

Each of the seven cabins is custom-designed and fitted with two twin beds, fresh linens, private bath, ceiling fans and central heat and air. Please bring your own flashlight. You can relax on your own small patio, stroll over to the guest pavilion or gather at the observation deck and trade the day’s stories with your fellow travelers.

MORNING SAFARI GUIDED TOUR

Not exactly “lodging,” but an overnight stay is required for this tour…
The Morning Safari Guided Tour may just be the best tour of the day at Fossil Rim. This tour is reserved for our Lodge and Foothills Safari Camp overnight guests, and it leaves at 8:30 a.m. from the Pavilion after breakfast is served. Your advantage of an early morning departure will have you out and about prior to most other guests arriving for the day and before some of the animals have been fed. Having the brunch wagon drive through is a delight for the animals and you may well get mobbed when they are looking for a handout. 

Your guide will entertain and inform you, as well as do the driving so you don’t have to. Don’t miss out – take advantage of this delightful morning tour.

For an additional charge, your Morning Safari Tour can be upgraded to go behind the scenes on a tour of the Jim Jackson Intensive Management Area. There, you will visit our wolf, black rhino and cheetah habitats, plus get a bird’s eye view of our Attwater’s prairie chicken breeding facility. The tour cost is $45.95 for a Behind-the-Scenes Morning Safari Tour and $30.95 for a standard Morning Safari Tour.

If you have questions or would like to purchase a tour, please call us at 254.897.2960.

Wolf Ridge Bunkhouse

Bunkhouse Rentals

Our Wolf Ridge Nature Camp bunkhouses come with bunkbeds and not much else. But you’re staying here for the experience and not the amenities, right? All bunkhouses have heat and air conditioning. It’s like camping without having to sleep on the ground.

$10 per person for additional guests

Damage deposit: $150 (See description below)
There are eight bunkhouses that each sleep up to 14 people.
You will need to bring your own bedding and toiletries. We do not permit portable heaters, cooking appliances, pets, drugs, alcohol or weapons.

Damage Deposit

We require a damage deposit payable by check, which will be returned provided our facilities are not damaged. If guests cancel less than three days before their reservation date, there will be no refund offered. If guests choose to reschedule within three days of their stay, there will be a $50 rescheduling fee.
