Visiting Freeman Center

Visitor Policy

In order to entertain visitors properly and enhance your experience at the ranch, we have developed the following guidelines for your visit.

It is important to note that the Freeman Center is similar to other businesses with important business at hand, therefore, we must schedule time to entertain visitors. Your cooperation is important to allow us to meet safety and scheduling concerns - when we know you are coming, we can make your visit better!

Due to safety concerns, visitors must check in at the main ranch headquarters just inside the 2nd cattle guard each time they visit. Please do not wander around the headquarters compound looking for personnel . The front pasture, which includes the Freeman Nature Trail and Freeman Ranch House and Conference Center, is open weekdays from  7 am to dark and requires no prior notification, although we would like you to call us each time you visit. The Conference Center is open only for registered users.

Visitors wishing to visit the main ranch must schedule time or visit during open public hours. During hunting season, all visitors must schedule in advance. All visitors need be accompanied by or advised by a ranch employee during their visit. 


The ranch office is open from 8:00am -12:00pm Monday - Friday.
