Our lodge has been recently expanded and renovated and is a modern day Camargo style lodge which stands tall with a caliche retaining wall and corrales de lena over a gorgeous lake in a large Tiocano Rio bowl named Lago Maria. The comfortable hunting lodge has 12 bedrooms and 14 full bathrooms combined. It is equipped with a fitness room, theater room, game room and cantina . This is the ideal location to relax after an exciting day of South Texas Hunting!
Los Compadres Hangout is Santa Cruz Ranch outdoor entertainment. Great spot for bbq'n, smoking meat, baking pan de campo, drinking beer and playing games. We have shuffleboard, darts and card games.
Meals at the lodge are homemade South Texas cooking, bbq, grilling and baking.

We make driving around the ranch fun with our onsite hunting rig.
