I can't say enough of what a wonderful time I had at the Rocking Horse Ranch! EVERYBODY was always so nice and kind, I never met anybody with a bad day. The facilities were awesome to say the least, something for every age level. The rooms were so spacious and my grandchildren loved the bunk beds in the room. I... More

"Mom, this really is our home away from home" was the opening statement as we entered the lobby of RHR by my 14 year old daughter!!! That is exactly what it feels like when we step foot on the RHR property. We try to go in the winter and summer, as both seasons have so much to offer our family.... More

Just spent Wednesday to Friday at RHR and had a wonderful time. Our 2 grand daughters loved it and we're constantly busy. The food is good, plentiful but not garnet. It is offered in endless portions and varieties at every meal. Literally something for everyone. The facilities are all clean, maintained and most importantly safe. The swimming, boating and all...

There are positives and negatives to Rocking Horse Ranch. The positives: You can do as many activities as you like, and repeatedly. There are many activities to choose, and of various levels of physical ability. You can even try something new, with instruction from the staff. My daughter and I tried to water ski, and the staff was very helpful,... More

Hi audnlou and thank you very much for the positive review. I agree and you're absolutely right regarding the soda, from here on out soda will be free (sometimes we do miss the obvious, my apologies). BUT, I do guarantee for our price, on this planet Earth you will never find an ALL-INCLUSIVE resort or cruise ship with as many... More

The RHR does an excellent job of focusing on their facilities. Lots of horses for daily riding, pools including water slides, nice park for the kids, bunny jumping trampolines, water skiing (although the lake is a little muddy), kids bouncy house, even a nice little zoo (including a camel, and zebra) and more. The rooms are surprising quiet given all... More

They go above and beyond at this place. In particular, the following members of the staff: Melissa, Barry, and Rosemary. Incredibly attentive. We will be back because of their excellent customer service. We enjoyed the pools, slides, and playground.

Our family of 4 checked in on July 12th and checked out on July 15th. In between that time we were treated extremely well. We stayed in the Oklahoma building which was a very short walk to the main building. The room was fine except it could use another piece of furniture for clothing and my wife wished the bathroom...

If you are looking for western magical family vacation, look no further! Addicting to say the least, I have been enjoying my vacations at the Rocking Horse Ranch since 1992. The Ranch has changed through out the decades since my first visit as a 4 year old. I am now 28 years old, with more than 30 vacation stays at... More
