Centennial Lodge Facilities

The Centennial Lodge facilities are spacious, down-home comfortable, and darn near big city plush.  Opening day will, in many ways, be the same as it has for the past three decades for the dove hunters guided by the Wise family. Hunter Wise has joined his parents full time since graduating from Texas Tech in 2013. The hunters will have every opportunity to bag daily limits of Coleman County’s great dove crop at the best sites throughout the county. They will meet old friends who have hunted together for many years and catch up on news and events for the past year. There’s a good chance a few new “tall tales” will be met with disbelief as the folks sit down to dinners of rib eye steaks or fried catfish with all the trimmings. All those fortunate enough to hunt with the Wises will enjoy the hospitality provided by Hank, Darla, Hunter and all the crew. Centennial Lodge will be enjoyed by the hunters arriving from all over Texas and other states.

Coleman County residents are familiar with the site, as it has served as a school since 1940. The thirteen-acre campus has five separate structures built over the years. The main building and gymnasium was a WPA project completed in 1940. Prior to the purchase by the Wises, the campus housed the CAP program for the surrounding independent school districts.

Now Centennial Lodge is a state of the art hunting lodge with facilities capable of housing many lucky hunters and dining facilities seating hunters and other guest either inside or outside on the new covered veranda nestled in the courtyard under towering post oaks. Big screen televisions are located in the main gathering area in the main building and in the annex.

The main building has a huge gathering area tastefully decorated with lovers of wildlife in mind. Trophy deer, turkey, fox and pheasant mounts adorn the pine interior walls. The annex also has a gathering area equally tastefully finished. Both areas have wet bars and the central area of the annex also has room for recreational activities such as billiards and card games. Every effort was made to make the hunting experience as comfortable and “homey” as possible.
