Why Come to 6S River Ranch?

Our Location

6S River Ranch lies in Gatesville, TX, directly in the path of the best places to watch the eclipse. At these locations, the moon will perfectly cover the sun, plunging the surrounding land into total night. With the proper eclipse safety glasses, you can even look up and see the edges of the sun in a beautiful flare of light and color. The moon will pass over our ranch on April 8th, 2024 from 1:37 pm to 1:43 pm CST. Whether you come for the day or stay the night on the riverfront, your kids will remember the day for decades.
