On Site Features:
What kind of visit you can have: there are several areas and various tours available through this multi-purpose park.  The Visitor Center holds a collection of LBJ memorabilia, and an attached two-room dogtrot cabin from the 1870s and an 1840 log cabin sits just west.  East of the center, off the nature trail, is the Sauer- Beckman farm, where costumed interpreters live a lifestyle typical of farm families in the 1900-1918 period.  Housekeeping and farming activities take place daily.  Tours of these facilities last about an hour.  There are also tram tours of the LBJ Ranch (which is run by the National Park Service) on a first come first served basis (from 10 to 4), and tours of the wildlife management area.
