We recently stayed at the Rockin R for a family reunion and have to say the staff was very friendly and accommodating. They offer a variety of activities from horseback rides to your very own rodeo (you are the participants). The rooms are the quality of a one to two star hotel. The food was mediocre. It was served cafeteria style. You could eat as much as you wanted to. The only meal that was in the OK range was breakfast. But, it's not about the food. There are plenty of activities and things to see within an hours drive. We visited Bryce Canyon and were stunned with its beauty. We thoroughly enjoyed the advanced horseback rides (you have to request this). So if you're looking for a great place to relax this could be for you.

My wife and I went on the cattle drive,but because of the cold at the higher elevations stayed at the lodge rather than the cow camp. The rooms were clean and the food was very good.

We stayed here as part of a 3 week trip to some of the many National Parks in southern Utah, and the cattle drive was the highlight of a great trip.

We brought a big Youth Group to the Rockin R Ranch in June. The kids (ages 12-18) has the best time. There were non-stop activities to choose from such as horse-back riding, rafting, swimming and lots of fun western activities that you can only experience on a dude ranch. Everyone was happily surprised with how nice the lodging was -- very clean and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend the Rockin R Ranch. We had a great time. It was the kind of experience that we will always remember and laugh about.

We stayed at the Rockin R Ranch for one week and loved it! This is a real working ranch so the accomodations are rustic and simple...as it should be for this type of ranch. The staff is warm, very friendly, flexible, and easy going. There is a lot of freedom and the staff is willing to change scheduled activities to meet guests' needs. We are a family of five (9 year old daughter, 13 year old son, & 16 year old daughter) and we all enjoyed the ranch especially our 16 year old who had initially been very skeptical about the ranch before we got there. We felt like we were not only on a ranch but part of the ranch life. We all want to go back to the Rockin R!

  • Liked — The activities especially the horseback riding and river tubing.
  • Disliked — Room was too warm at night.

We took a group of 34 people(28 youth ages 14-18 and 6 adults) to the Ranch and had an absolutely GREAT TIME. From the moment we arrived we were treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism. The ranch manager, J. R. Alexander, his wife Jana and the rest of the staff at the ranch are truly a class act. They put together a wonderful itinerary for us and were busy and entertained from start to end. The arena activities were great. The calf-riding, sheep riding, sheep dressing, and the rest of the activities were fabulous. The horseback riding was fun, the tubing was a BLAST, the relays and all the activities in general were well organized, supervised by a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff and made our stay a memory of a lifetime. The rooms were clean, the food was great and abundant, and the total environment was perfect.

On this website there are other reviews with some negative comments about the ranch, the staff and the accommodations. Needless to say, we were a bit nervous about what lay in store for us. I am happy to say that we found NONE of the negative comments on this site to be applicable to our time at the ranch. On the contrary, our experience was the total opposite. We had a GREAT time. All 34 of us enjoyed the time and are deeply appreciative to the management and the staff for making our stay so enjoyable. If you are looking for a 6 star hotel where the doormen wear white gloves and a top hat, go to New York, Paris or Los Angeles, however, if you are looking for a fantastic time where instead of the white gloves and top hat, the staff is wearing leather gloves and a cowboy hat, you’ve hit paradise. We all HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Rockin R Ranch and hope to be able to return soon!!

My family and I spent a few days down at the Rockin' R Ranch for a family reunion last year. My kids had a fantastic time exploring the grounds, playing on the playground and having fun with the farm animals. I really enjoyed the middle-of-nowhere location and natural surroundings. It was very relaxing and refreshing.

The Rockin' R really is a fully functional ranch—more so than I anticipated. The ranch hands, cooks and wranglers were not just there to create ambiance but were all working hard at their jobs, something you could tell they did whether there were guests or not. I liked the super-rustic, work-in-progress feel to the ranch. Nothing was over embellished. I really felt like I was on a farm, enjoying life as it was known for many years out in the West: raw, unvarnished and true-to-life.

A word of advice to any would-be visitors: don't go with the expectation of 4-star hotel amenities. That isn't the point of this place. The Rockin' R is an experience of life as it used to be, with all the simplicity and fun that were part of a quieter time in history. The rooms are decent, the beds sufficient and the food is good. But the place and the experience are priceless. I loved the uniqueness of the ranch and would recommend it to anyone looking for the same.

  • Liked — Going horseback riding and the evening performances
  • Disliked — Seating for meals was a little crowded, but that's probably because we have so many family members.
