On October 5 of 2015, nearly 5,400 acres of the historic Y.O. Ranch came under new ownership and was renamed Y.O. Ranch Headquarters.
Since then, extensive renovations have been made which includes new roads, brush clearing, new lodging and much, much more. Whether you are looking for a day trip to meet our famous giraffes and other amazing wildlife or a weekend adventure in one of our beautiful cabins – we offer true Texas hospitality.
