Tarrant Ranch
1940 Country Road 3704
Bullard, Texas 75757

Enjoy the unparalleled beauty of East Texas in the spring on the Tarrant Ranch. The ranch is owned by Mary Ann Tarrant. The land has been owned by the Tarrant family since 1850. There is great history on this very diverse land south of Tyler, Texas, which includes spring-fed streams and small waterfalls, the ”healing waters”, grassy valleys, the old spring swim hole, the bone pile, a pine tree forest, fern valley, and the historic family cemetery where friend of all equestrians, Jim Tarrant, was buried in May 2014. The natural grandeur of the ranch has been preserved and Mr. Tarrant always enjoyed sharing his many thousand acre ranch with responsible equestrians. Added bonus: Expect the dogwoods to be in full bloom.

The campsite is primitive along the improved tree-line of a large pasture. Horse water is provided in camp and also in nearby ponds and streams. Bring your own people water. Porta-Potties are provided. There are both generator and no generator areas for camping. Sliding tethers are allowed. Horseshoes are optional, as the land has sandy soil and a very minimal amount of ironstone. Terrain varies, from scenic wooded trails with gentle climbs and many creek crossings to grassy meadows, impressive hayfields and pasture land.

Negative Coggins required on all horses in camp. Horses may be stationary tied or with a sliding tether. Dogs must be leashed or under control at all times. Alcohol is restricted to your camp only. Camping and ranch use fee is included in entry fee. No camp fees for volunteers. Thursday and Sunday night camping need to be paid to ranch. Scatter manure thoroughly.

Pot-luck dinner Saturday evening, with meat, plates and utensils provided. Bring your own drink.

From Tyler...Coming south on Hwy 69 just south of Bullard you'll start looking for a right turn on 3701. From 3701 you'll look for a cemetery sign & right turn on 3704. It's a pretty small gravel road & only turns right but the key is the old cemetery sign. If you're taking Hwy.69 north out of Jacksonville you'll be looking for 3701 on the left just before you get into Bullard. Then watch for the old cemetery sign (3704) & turn right. The entrance to the Tarrant Ranch will be down 3704 a quarter mile or so, on the left.
