From check-in to check-out there was non-stop action, activities, food and lots of warm friendly staff. This place is a must see! Every staff member says hello to you and all you have to do is look as though you have a question and someone walks up and engages you. Except for the evening meal service (plates quickly taken before... More

My family and I have been here twice and we're looking to come back this summer. We also visited Splashdown Beach which is great and owned by the RHR family. Would be great to include admission and service to and from Splashdown Beach in the stay.

My three girls, wife and I couldn't have had a better time at RHR! The facilities, activities and the staff all amazing! Everyone we encountered was extremely professional and very courteous. We are all very much looking forward to planning our next stay here!

My husband, six-year old daughter and I just vacationed at the RHR. We had a fantastic week! A gracious, professional staff along with the ranch's many amenities and activities all combined to make our stay very enjoyable! My daughter went horse-back riding, swimming, climbed the rock wall, made crafts, went on scavenger hunts and enjoyed the nightly shows. We all... More

We first visited this resort 25 years ago with their parents, it was even better now. The weather was not great but the indoor activities are many, a fun water park inside too which entertained the toddlers nonstop. The staff is professional, diligent and friendly.

We went on Easter weekend 2015 for 3 days. We were 3 adults (myself, my 26 yo daughter and her boyfriend) and 2 children - ages 4 and 6. I loved all the ranch decor and it was just a perfect atmosphere and such a happy place. There is So much to do!! Horseback riding/pony rides, the fun barn, archery,... More

We can admit it, we love the riding, the horses are incredible, so although all of the staff, from the front desk to the entertainment, are great, we have to acknowledge the great rides, wranglers and of course the mountains. After our long and cold winter we were really looking forward to our vacation at RHR and we were very... More

I recently met friends staying at the resort for dinner and was beyond impressed. Everything ordered was delicious, and our waiter and cocktail waitress were so attentive, even with a completely full dining room. We sat at a table in the new addition to the dining room, which was beautiful and reminds you of sitting in an upscale mountain lodge... More

We had big expectations for this place, given the big price. The room was not so nice, and the lunch and dinner terrible. The kids enjoyed it, but I must admit that this place is probably best visited in the summer, as most of the fun activities outside, but that won't help the food! Our kids enjoy horses, so it...

rockinghorseranch, General Manager at Rocking Horse Ranch Resort, responded to this review

Purzilini, I really have to ask, if you were this dissatisfied, why didn’t you ask to speak with either myself the GM, or Steve Turk the owner? We were both on property the entire duration of your stay. Instead, you chose to write a blistering review of our food service operation. Our Executive Chef, Paul Kelly was here as well…... More

Rockinghorse Ranch had amazing staff and customer service, especially for a resort that has such diverse services, activities, and customers. What I loved: completely kid friendly! I went with my 3 yo daughter, 7 yo daughter, and 8yo nephew. The waterpark was big enough for them all to enjoy and the night time shows were such a hit, especially when... More
