For our 50th Anniversary we took our children and grandchildren to the Ranch this past weekend. To say everyone had a good time would just be a lie. We all had a fabulous time, so much so, that our grandchildren want to make this a family tradition and we made reservations for next year. There is something for all ages... More

It was so sad to leave!!! The service is excellent - there are so many people to help on all of the activities. There are over 100 horses, and only about 400 guests so you get chance to ride everyday, if not 2 or 3 times!! Activities: Baseball, shooting, archery, climbing, swimming, volleyball, tennis, Kayaking, Banana boats, Waterskiing, Mini Golf,... More

I have a family of six - two teens and two tweens. We were warned by friends that are kids were too old for this place. Boy were they wrong. From the horses, to the banana boats, to the nightly entertainment the kids could not have had a better time. Special thanks to Susan the wrangler. The food was good... More

Dear David: Thanks for sharing your review of your recent visit to the Ranch. We agree with you about the span of ages of kids that enjoy their visit here. From the youngest to the teens, there’s plenty to keep the kids occupied. I’ll be certain to give that ‘special’ thanks to Susan; and let The Turks know too. Thank... More

I love horseback riding so I went for a long weekend getaway. I can't say enough good about everything. The room and bathroom were updated and the bed was comfortable. The food was delicious and there was a lot of it. The pool was super clean. The wranglers did a good job keeping everyone safe for such a risky activity.... More

We visited Rocking Horse Ranch and couldn't have had a better time! Our 7year old son didn't stop from the time we arrived until the time we left. There is constantly something going on, and so many amenities to choose from that I don't think we even got to do everything they had to offer! The staff was extremely welcoming... More

We appreciate your posting both positive and constructive comments regarding your visit in early August. Our activities programs are designed for participation at all age levels, although it is sometimes challenging to accommodate older teens. With the abnormally high temps nearing 100 degrees last week, the outdoor pool did become a bit crowded. This encouraged our thinking about a possible... More

Highly recommend rocking horse ranch! We brought our 3 and 5 year old here for a four day weekend and it was perfect. We plan on coming back every year. There are tons of activities suitable for their age - they could not get enough of the mountain tubing or the pools! All of the staff is super friendly and... More
