Located 100 miles West of DFW Airport in the hills of the Edwards Plateau South of Jacksboro and East of Possum Kingdom Lake, our 188-acre wildlife retreat & education center features a stocked 4-acre lake, one-acre beaver pond, a four-mile hike and bike trail, five partially covered swim/fish/kayak docks, one-acre catfish pond and a one=acre crappie pond.

Mission: Welcome to Marluc Bella Vita Ranch. the Ranch serves our guests by providing a resort environment and a place for learning, tranquility, relaxation, sport, and entertainment while participating in the care of our facilities, wildlife, vegetation, ponds and other natural resources.

The property features a lodge available for rent that houses 35 people, a sports complex with basketball, soccer, volleyball and baseball. Includes a large fire pit, classroom, water slide, boat dock (you can rent our pontoon boat), upper deck, and lots of wildlife viewing stations. With four miles of hiking and biking trails (motorized not permitted) around the forested lake and the wooded upper meadow, there is lots to see if you enjoy nature and wildlife.

Our sports field complex has a lit basketball court, sand volleyball court, a picnic area, and a baseball and soccer practice field with a backstop and goal.

Lake Godstone is 40 feet deep and stocked with bass, bluegill, and channel catfish. Fishing is very good and there are lots of openings through the woods with nice fishing spots. We also built a new crappie pond below the lake in 2020. Surrounding the lake are five partially covered docks used for fishing, swimming, and boating.
