Venter's Place is a location featured in Red Dead Redemption in the Cholla Springs region of the New Austin territory.


Red Dead RedemptionEdit

It is a small ranch northwest of Lake Don Julio. The ranch is smaller than most ranches, including Critchley's Ranch.

Liars and CheatsEdit

After downloading the Liars and Cheats DLC pack, Venter's Place becomes a gang hideout in Free Roam. As with the other hideouts from that DLC, upon completion the player with the highest score unlocks a chest containing the Explosive Rifle.

Undead NightmareEdit

This is the location of Grover Boone, the fourth missing person to be rescued in the Fort Mercer segment of the Missing Souls Side-missions. The ranch located here also serves as a clue for the Undead Treasure Hunter challenge Rank 2.


The whole ranch has a fence running around it in a circle, the ranch consists of two main buildings; a farmhouse and a barn. A single man wanders the ranch, this man is either 'Mr Venter' or a ranch-hand. He's most likely a ranch-hand as there's a small mattress (used as a makeshift bed) in the barn possibly where a ranch-hand would sleep. The farmhouse is mostly the same model as the one at Critchley's Ranch, with just a few differences: the farmhouse only has one canister outside the front door whereas the farmhouse at Critchley's Ranch has two and the farmhouse at Venter's Place has a canopy to the left side with a barrel underneath it and a crate with a Whiskey Jug on it and a cooking pan outside it too.

The barn is a completely different model to the one at Critchley's and has no tools hanging on the outside.

The ground on the ranch is dotted with large stones/rocks/pebbles. A wheelbarrow is placed next to the barn.


The ranch has two horses and four chickens. The ranch is also home to a scrawny brown ranch dog, the same breed and model of the dog at Critchley's Ranch.


  • There is a man named Bert Venter who likely owns the ranch.
  • Standing next to the house and equipped with a Rolling Block Rifle, it is possible to see the building at Pleasance House a considerable distance away to the north west.
