Make sure to read all reviews before choosing to stay here. Mostly all activities have a fee and have to be reserved in advance. You don't have to be a "timeshare" owner to be here. You can go here for the day to experience the activities. But you can only stay at the tent sites or rv sites. Not the... More

Besides the numerous pursuits offered, from skeet shooting, horse back riding, zip lining and boating, to a real Rodeo on Saturday night, there are numerous accommodations available.

So, where to begin. On a Friday or Saturday night (especially Sat) this is a great resort for kids and family. They do a rodeo on Sat night and other things. On the other days of the week it is absolutely dead and the closest town is around 20 miles. So you're captive. One restaurant. It's not bad and the... More
