We just very recently hosted a wedding here at Rough Creek Lodge. It was perfect…just approaching the entry of the Lodge the wildflowers are in full swing, which really set the tone and mood for a wonderful event!
Friday night’s rehearsal dinner kicked-off the weekend’s festivities. Following dinner everyone convened by the Back Terrace fire pit to enjoy cocktails and s’Mores. After a good night’s rest, it was the “big day”… the ceremony itself was held at our beautiful country Chapel, complete with succulent wreaths adorning the front doors to two adorable flower girls who adeptly carried out their duties. Afterward, the wedding party once again chose the Back Terrace for the reception, complete with band, gorgeous floral arrangements and off-the-chain cuisine.
It’s Spring! It’s the perfect time to begin the search for a venue for your special day. Why not Rough Creek Lodge? Our rustic elegance offers an indelible experience: we promise your wedding will be stylishly unique, beautifully done and impeccably executed—yours.

We are in full hunting mode here Rough Creek Lodge. The “2nd Season” for ducks starts again on December 8th and runs through January 27… if the First Season is any indication, 2nd Season promises to be crazy great!
In the meantime, Deer Season is in full force and will go through January 6th…and did we mention that the Upland Bird Season is out of control? Whew! The birds are flying and really beautiful; season ends March 31st.
Time’s a wastin’, so get your gun and reserve your spot now! (Oh yeah, a weekend hunt would be a FABULOUS Christmas gift!)
Okay, you’ll have to forgive us for the pop culture reference, but the Upland Bird Season started October 1st! Time to go hunting…and shoot a bird or two!
Pheasant, quail, chukar—they’re all flying great, our dogs are ready (and always excited!), we’ve just had our first little cold snap and the weather is fantastic. Yep, here at Rough Creek Lodge we’re in full hunt mode, and it promises to be a great season.
Don’t forget, you can bring your own guns (but if you do, bring your own ammo) or we can supply them. Our guides are consummate professionals, know the terrain and where to go—and they’re friendly, too. When it’s all done, you can relax out on the terrace with a cigar and nice brandy before an amazing gourmet dinner.
Bring the family! There’s so much to do! Can’t fit it into your schedule now? The season officially ends March 31st, so you have a little time, but don’t put it off. Reserve a spot now!
There’s no doubt about it: Rough Creek Lodge has the best hunting experience around these parts. But we also cater to folks who like to shoot guns but don’t hunt, as well as hunters who want to keep their skills sharp between seasons (or right before they head off to the field!). Gun ranges are okay, but Rough Creek Lodge is the “go to” venue for shooting enthusiasts!
You need to check out our custom designed 1,000-Yard Rifle Range! This is a marksman’s paradise, featuring an elevated covered shooting platform, steel targets located at multiple distances commencing at 100 yards, and the ever-important wind direction indicators. And while you’re up on the platform, check out some REAL action: try out our Remington 700 bolt action/308 caliber sniper rig equipped with long range optics, Harris bi-pod, rear monopod and anti-cant level! Whew! What word do we use when “awesome!” just doesn’t cut it?
If that isn’t enough to get you going, we’ve got an event coming up that will rock your world: the Rough Creek Shoot Out! Starting with a Friday evening reception and dinner with former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the deadliest sniper in US military history, this weekend event at our 1,000-Yard Rifle Range is a civilian training experience you won’t want to miss. Click here to get more information and sign up now!
Stay tuned: we have more shooting events planned for the near future. When it comes to gun sports, Rough Creek Lodge is the target destination!
Okay, that sounds a bit corny, but duck hunting season is here and there’s just no better place for duck hunting than at Rough Creek Lodge!
Bring the family—hunting is perfect “togetherness” time, especially when you’re with us. (And even if you have family members that aren’t interested in hunting, well, we’ve got them covered, too.) Our Morning Duck Hunts include professional guides and water dogs, snacks and coffee in the blind, and more—we take care of the particulars so all you have to do is show up.
If you’ve had the luxurious experience of any of our spa treatments, you may have had the opportunity to actually take a shower afterward. Did you notice the shower gels?
Well, a LOT of our clients have—with rave reviews!—and have inquired as to what they were. We’ve used Margo’s Mixtures for quite a while, and there’s a reason for it: they’re just downright awesome. Fragrant without being overwhelming, these fabulous shower gels leave you feeling wonderfully clean without drying your skin… in fact, they actually help keep your skin moisturized. And, one of their main ingredients is extract of Arnica Montana Flower, which is well known for its ability to soothe muscular aches and pains—perfect after an active day out on the range at Rough Creek Lodge!
We’ve had so many inquiries about it that we’re actually putting two of our favorites on sale!
Earth & Sky Collection
This shower gel has a very masculine, woody smell accented with the fragrance of green tea and spring grass.
Sun & Sea Collection
This shower gel has an Aloe Vera base, and has a delightful “beachy” smell including the fragrances of Neroli and Calendula. It’s summer fun in a bottle —without all the sand!
These are sold in 8 ounce bottles—made for the shower—and now at 15% off, they are priced at $11.90! You know you want to come to Rough Creek, so when you do, visit the spa for a special treatment and take home a Margo’s Mixtures shower gel..a fabulous reminder of Rough Creek every time you soap up!
We just can’t say it enough: weddings here at Rough Creek Lodge are off the chain! Okay, maybe we’ve never said it quite like that before, but you get the point. Take, for example, Jen and James. They just recently had their biggest day here at Rough Creek. For all intents and purposes, the Lodge was theirs… rooms for their guests, our beautiful rustic church for the “I do’s”, and our incredible Great Room for the reception. All impeccably decorated. Every detail seen to.
Check out this short, fun video of Jen and James’ wedding and get inspired! Then call Brenda, our Certified Wedding Consultant…and plan your own amazing day here at Rough Creek. From fabulous food to unforgettable fireworks (and anything else you can imagine), we make sure that everything goes off without a hitch—all you have to do is get hitched!
Fox 29 in San Antonio has a weekly program called Road Trippin’, where viewers are introduced to the many fabulous destinations of Texas. Just recently Rough Creek got a shout out as THE place to eat and stay in the Glen Rose area! Check out the link below for two vignettes… one shows Chef Thompson demonstrating the preparation of one our most popular entrees (grilled quail), while the other highlights all the features that makes Rough Creek Lodge a fabulous road trip destination.
We have touted how wonderful our weddings are here at Rough Creek, but rather than tell you again, let us show you!
Allison and Ryan were married in our chapel just two weeks ago and had a fantastic reception in the Great Room. Austin-based videographer Mason Jar Films captured the big day and shared a little teaser of this special occasion.
At Rough Creek Lodge, each wedding celebration is as unique and special as the couple it represents. So if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind experience for you and your future spouse, say “I do!” to Rough Creek Lodge.
Now that’s what we like to hear! A former Rough Creek guest shared her experience with D Magazine’s Travel Club blog and once again we received nothing but praise—she even shared some wonderful photos of her time here. Thanks, Jelena for taking the time to review us.
Keep those reviews and comments coming!
