Rest. Reconnect. Rediscover.

Refuge Ranch provides time and space for meaningful gatherings, intentional experiences and needed solitude - all experienced on almost 20 acres of hills and beautifully wooded property near Buffalo Gap, Texas. 

Rediscover and focus on what matters most in life through:

  • Rest - destroy busyness and stress by entering a space of peace and outdoor adventure

  • Reconnect - stay rooted in relationships with others, yourself and our Creator

  • Rediscover - what inspires you and your purpose


We provide a break from our busy, stressful, technology-infused culture; replacing it with rest and rejuvenation. Hundreds of trees laced with walking trails, areas to explore, activities, and spaces for fellowship or time alone - all you need is to arrive and enjoy being fully present in the moment.

Refuge Ranch is near the city, but offers a wilderness experience allowing people to disconnect without travelling very far. You will have access to comfortable picnic blankets, restful hammocks, an exciting zip line, outdoor games, and a variety of cooking areas. 

We also provide unique gathering spaces for groups. Families, married couples and friends can build and strengthen relationships. After time on the property we hope you leave feeling rooted in relationships, motivated by what matters and refreshed by our Creator.

Refuge Ranch is a 501c3 nonprofit organization made possible by generous donors. Please consider helping advance its vision of helping people rediscover and focus on what matters most in life.
