Location: 1 hr south of Dallas, very rural location but this is a ranch what do you expect! The buildings are superbly designed and merge the modern with the traditional beautifully. Check in: excellent, very warm greeting, porters looked after our cases and delivered to room immediately. Room (Suite): Amazing! Huge, rustic, quality, excellent facilities (including free wi-fi) 5 Stars.... More

Our department had their retreat at Rough Creek in October 2014. It was great to get out of DFW and be outside. We played the yard games outside of the lodge, rode bikes, and had smores by the fire at night. The food was great, the staff was very helpful in setting up the agenda, and the snacks during the...

Went to Rough Creek Lodge to celebrate upcoming wedding for a friend. A group of us went horseback riding. When we returned home our credit cards were charged 2-4 times. I called immediately to have situation remedied and was told I would be credited. It never happened. I had to call 4 times and then leave a message for the... More

Little things like cold water at the entrance and on the hiking path was a nice touch. don't have kids but climbing wall, zip line,... More

We went to this hotel 8 years ago and loved it! 8 years later and this time with 2 kids, we went back. It is a great place for adults and kids. The kids activies like petting zoo, poney rides, zip lanes and bouncy houses, keep them busy and happy. Also the buffet is good. The rooms are nice and... More

Stayed here one night over Labor Day weekend. It is kinda like hillbilly disney world. They cater to you (and your kids) every whim. Everything is easy at RCL. It is literally in the middle of "nowhere". Beware, you will not have cell service (which was just fine). The room was nice enough, but the bed was phenomenal. I absolutely... More

We got a 2 bedroom cabin with sleeping loft for 3 adults, 3 kids. The cabin could sleep a total of 12, so I was surprised to find only 1 very small bathroom with a pedestal sink -- no space to even put a toothbrush. There was 1 chair inside the cabin, 1! We called ahead to alert kitchen about... More

Located in a beautiful, middle of nowhere setting, rough creek lodge is good fun for the family. It has a good number of activities for the kids a good 4-star accommodation. At $800 a night (or so), it is incredibly overpriced for what it offers. It claims to be "all inclusive" but it is not. Breakfast is decent, lunch are... More

Stayed for one night to reconnect with family. From the moment you arrive you are greeted like family. The staff go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. We were greeted by name by the entire staff the entire stay. They always remembered our name which was amazing! Make sure you have Sal at the bar make... More

Went to Rough Creek with the family for about a 3 nights and had a terrific time. From the activities to the food to the staff demeanor, this was one of the best all inclusive experiences we've had as a family in a long time and is proably the best value for the price in my opinion.
