The Spa & Activities

The Rough Creek Lodge spa offers a wide selection of relaxing and rejuvenating services that are great for therapy or simply pampering for individuals, couples, and groups.

Choose from a wide selection of massages (Swedish, Therapeutic, Deep Tissue, and Hot Stone), facials, body treatments (back therapy and back scrubs), and nail care treatments. There are also some spa services specifically for men and young clients. Massages range in duration from 30 minutes to 80 minutes. There are also a few add-on services that can help improve the spa experience such as scalp massages, eye treatments, and aromatherapy.

There are many fun things to do at Rough Creek Lodge & Resort to make your stay more memorable. Guests will be given everything they need for the ultimate hunting experience, including well-trained hunting dogs and Texas guides. Depending on the season, guests will have the opportunity to hunt upland birds, white-tailed deer, hogs, ducks, turkeys, and some exotic wildlife.

The Lodge and Resort is also home to a vast shooting complex where guests can partake in various shooting sports. Sporting Clays, Five Stand, and Wobble Trap are different shooting activities that provide varying types of targets, allowing shooters of all skill and experience levels to have their own sport to enjoy.

A full round of Sporting Clays gives the shooter ten stations, 100 shots, and targets that simulate actual hunting scenarios. Five Stand, on the other hand, uses a wider variety of targets thrown from traps and involves less walking. Wobble Traps provide a more challenging shooting experience because of the varying patterns of the targets.

Those who are not so interested in shooting sports will find plenty of other activities to enjoy. Equally exciting are the zip line and rock climbing, catch and release fishing, and biking and hiking. Children will find the Petting Coral, Kid’s Ranch, kite flying, and paintball to be a unique experience as well. For those who want to relax and spend more time socializing, guests can interact and spend time in groups over s’mores or on a private picnic.

There are also lots of educational opportunities, such as cooking lessons or visiting the Billy the Kid museum, Stephenville, and other art museums. Those looking for entertainment will also delight in the live music with Loco Coyote Live Entertainment.

Finally, Rough Creek is also the place for golfing, and Granbury has seven separate golf courses. There are simply countless ways for guests to enjoy their stay.

Although the lodge offers a relaxing getaway, Rough Creek isn’t really that far from the Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex. In fact, it’s fairly easy to get to. It is approximately 10 miles from Glen Rose (west); one hour away from Fort Worth; and one and a half hour-drive from DFW airport.

All the rates of these accommodations are sold as packages. They include:

  • A deluxe hotel room (additional cost for suites, cabins, and houses)

Weekend rates start at $350 per person.
