One morning, I woke to view buffalo through my window. I went out behind my cabin at night to watch the buffalo and Longhorns up close. They say you can usually hear the coyotes howl at night, but my air conditioner drowned out any outside noise. Sleeping there, I never felt any pressure to get up early to start the day. Everyone is really relaxed, so I could do my own thing in my cabin without being bothered.
No meals are provided, except with large groups, but they do sell bottled water and ice cream at the ranch. About 5 miles down the road is a small store called Four Corners. I could buy soda there and had one of the greatest hamburgers ever. The place is really popular, so be prepared to wait in line. Five miles the other way is another convenience store, and further down in Elk City is a Wal-Mart and grocery store.
Reservations are suggested, although I just stopped by and they had an opening. You can find them online at www.flyingwonline.com.
