The Lodge – Rustic Luxury

View of the Lodge from an overlookThe 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 desert addax and gemsbok can often be seen making their daily migration around the Lodge and Foothills Safari Camp pastures and you’ll get an up close look at the resident deer and wild turkey.

Note: All lodging prices are based on double occupancy and includes breakfast and free admission to drive your car through Fossil Rim’s Scenic Drive.

Libations at The Lodge

The Lodge’s full service bar awaits you on the first floor common area, and is reserved only for our Lodge and Safari Camp guests. Beer and wine are also available at the Foothills Safari Camp pavilion.

However, due to Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission provisions, no alcohol obtained outside of Fossil Rim may be brought onto our property. Violations of this law will result in the confiscation of said alcohol and you will be asked to leave the property without a refund.

Glass PavillionThe Tents Are Ready... Are You?

Located half a mile further inside the Wildlife Center from the Lodge. The “tents” are made to look like safari tents in Africa. A two acre fenced enclosure overlooking one of Fossil Rim’s most popular wildlife watering holes where an ever changing variety of animals, from elegant sand hill cranes to families of waterbuck, can be viewed.

Each Tent Cabin is custom designed and fitted with two twin beds, fresh linens, a 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.

Note: All lodging prices are based on double occupancy and includes breakfast and free admission to drive your car through Fossil Rim’s Scenic Drive.

Bunkhouse Rentals

CabinOur Wolf Ridge Nature Camp bunkhouses come with bunk beds, and not much else. But you're staying here for the experience, not the amenities, right? Some bunkhouses have heat and air, and some don't. It's like camping... without having to sleep on the ground.

We have four cabins with heating and air conditioning that sleep 13 to 14 people. There are also four cabins without heating or air conditioning that sleep 12 to 14.

SunriseNot Really Lodging...
But You Have To Stay Here To Take This Tour

The Morning Safari Tour may just be the best tour of the day while at Fossil Rim. This tour is reserved for our Lodge and Foothills Safari Camp overnight guests and it leaves at 8:30am from the Pavilion, where breakfast is served. Your advantage of an early morning departure will have you out and about before most other guests arrive for the day and before some of the animals have been fed. Having the brunch wagon drive through is sheer delight for them and you may well get mobbed by animals looking for a handout.

Maned WolfYour first stop is generally at the Mexican Gray Wolf enclosure of the nearby Intensive Management Area. You will view three species of wolves, cheetah, coati, black rhinos and Attwater’s Prairie Chickens in this area before heading out into the park to look for the rest of our animals; returning to the Foothills Safari Camp in time for check out.

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.
