This place was a madhouse on a Monday. Lots of craft booths selling junk, long lines for average pie, cider wasn't that great. Prices for apples and jarred jams, etc were high. I won't come back. There are smaller mom and pop places that aren't a zoo and have better food. We really enjoyed Rainbow for donuts and pie!

This is the best place to get everything you need!! They have a restaurant, gift stores, a place to fish for little kids, a fudge shop, eating area for hot drinks, homemade donuts and fritters, carmel apples, and a shop right there to buy all kinds of goodies. By far the best apple hill has to offer.

Great place for all ages. Shopping for the girls, food for the guys, plenty of room for the kids to play. Fishing pond is way too expensive, but it's fun to watch. Donuts are good. And don't miss the apple cider press-one of the few you can actually watch on the hill. The juice is delicious!

My first trip to Apple Hill and I was told to go to High Hill Ranch. There were craft booths, a fishing pond, apple donuts, apple cider, apple pie, apple milkshakes, picnic tables with umbrellas and a fudge shop on site. We spent about 3 hours and had a great time. I will definitely visit again :)

Food always great! Great Pies and other apple treats. (Hamburgers, etc.) Lots of fresh and local produce. Many crafters in the fall. Fishing for the kids to do and more. Or you can always bring a picnic lunch and sit by the lake and watch the fun. Many unique gifts for holiday giving available. Great views, bring your camera for... More

quite large - lots of vendors - skip the apple pie - they don't believe in sugar apparently. there is a pond where for major $$, your child can reel in a 1 pound trout. wagon rides can be obtained through the orchard. oh hum. fudge factory or whatever they call it is ordinary.

The High hill Ranch is located in the heart of Apple Hill Country, but if you have even tried to tour Apple Hill you will know it is a lot of different roads spread out over a large area - so it is easy to miss most of it. Most people have a destination, and then maybe find something along... More

I have been going to High Hill Ranch for over 34 years, back when you could walk down the underground tunnel to the wine cellar. This is the place to go in all of Apple Hill. All my boys have caught their first fish here. The fishing is on the pricey side, but I always figured the memories were worth... More

This place has it all. It's right together with the Fudge place so you get a two for one stop here. It has beautiful grounds, very pet friendly which we appreciate, and plenty of apple offerings. I tried an apple cider milk shake - good but very sweet, glad I god a small. They also had mimosa's with champagne and... More

If you're a city dweller nice getaway. It's very touristy but fun. Go early in fall or early winter. Try and find the backroads. Real food a tad scarce. Eat in placerville.
