Book Your Next Gathering or Retreat at JKR
We believe the world is a better place when you can see the stars. Out here under open sky, things are much as they always have been, and the stage is set for unbounded possibility. At John Knox Ranch, we hold that time spend outdoors and away from city lights provides a unique setting in which we can recognize our best and truest selves. We've preserved a special place for people to gather to learn, have fun, and grow. Make plans for your youth group, Session/Deacons, Presbyterian Women/Men, and/or children's ministry to spend some time with us! Or, join us for your next office/work retreat, family reunion, scout campout, school trip, or wedding.

There's a reason that since the beginning of time, so many of our best stories, inventions, and friendships have begun with a gathering around the campfire. Whether you're taking your first steps in a new direction, completing a journey, or anything in between, we hope you'll join us in the spirit of shared discovery. The 300 acres of John Knox Ranch are yours to fill with faith, friends, family, and unforgettable experiences. Call us as (830) 935-4568 or DROP US A LINE  to make a reservation.
