My husband and I went this past June with our 15 year old son and his friend. We stayed for a week and all had a great time. The staff at the ranch are very friendly and personable. Buck does a great job at keeping ALL ages entertained. Every evening there is a fun activity and almost every night after... More

Our family visits this "resort" every other summer for a reunion. This will be the very last time we are staying there. We typically book this place because the lodging is set up in a way where we can easily convene together. Also, we could rent out our own dining room for breakfast and dinner. We also used to enjoy... More

We recently stayed at the Flying L Ranch for a family reunion. It was picked because it could accommodate a large family like ours. Water park was great for the kids. Putt putt was cool too. The food was less than average. Accommodation where pretty nice for a large family. Over all we had a good time there and I... More

We've been hear for 4 straight years. Something for everyone, young and old. San Antonio and Kerrville are not too far away for shopping. Love the kids activities. Golf for us dad's. Horseback riding for all of us.

Held a family reunion at Flying L for the second time. There were almost 65 of us ranging from 6 months to 88 years young. Flying L has a number of different amenities to satisfy all interests. Folks there were very friendly and accommodating. Couldn't ask for more helpful folks. The water park is the highlight for those with kids.... More

Took the Florida Grand-teens to Texas! San Antonio, the Alamo, and to ride horses at a Dude Ranch. The Flying L has horses, a water park, games and lot's more. Be sure to stay on a Saturday night to experience the cookout, 'Ghost-town' gunfights, ropeing, and Smores! What fun!

I had read a few reviews about the cleanliness and condition of the property prior to booking. Let me be clear that I have stayed at high-end resorts and I was fully aware this was not that type of property. The rooms are a bit dated, but we found ours clean and tidy. I will say that all of the... More

This was our first time to visit the Flying L and this was a vacation with my grandchildren and they absolutely loved every minute we were there and didn't want to leave. We stayed for 7 days and there was something for them and the adults to do everyday. The accommodations were good, clean and everything we needed was at... More

We've been coming here since the early 90s every year on our annual family vacation and it's just absolutely perfect. Everyone is incredibly nice, friendly, and accommodating. There's a water park and Children's Activities for the kids, and it's a wonderful "unplug" weekend for everyone. The kids have a blast and so do us adults. The breakfast buffet is stellar... More

We've been coming here since 2007 and absolutely love it! Our kids (12 and 11) are always so sad when we leave. We always stay 7 nights and stay on property the whole time due to so many fun family activities at the Flying L. We did go to the local Bandera rodeo one night which I highly recommend. Lots...
