In 1877 the Nelius Family settled here at Coushatte in Bellville, Texas. They farmed cotton and raised cattle. Horses were used in the fields until after 1948. Then, in the 1950’s, Trenckmann Nelius began to raise chickens and eggs. Cattle raising was still practiced, along with farming maize, to provide food for the chickens. In 1973, Trenckmann and Margie Nelius started the Coushatte Recreation Ranch with only 24 hookups. Since then it has grown to 225 sites with full hook ups, both 30 and 50 amp! Margie named the campground “Coushatte Recreaction Ranch” after the Coushatte Indians that thrived on this very land long ago.

There is a Indian Mound on the ranch, and many arrow heads have been found there. Since starting the Ranch, Trenckmann and Margie had five children; three sons: Fritz, Wayne, and Howard; and two daughters: Gail and Margie. Howard and his wife Pamela Nelius owned and operated Coushatte Recreation Ranch up until November 2019 when they decided to sell the Ranch after many years of caring for the campground. We now have a new owner by name of George Jarkesy, who bought the campground on November 12, 2019 to make it bigger and better for the tenants to enjoy. This is a great place to stay on the weekend.

So, grab your loved ones, pack your bags, and head to Coushatte Recreation Ranch for your Texas escape under the stars.
