We had a 3-day family reunion with 14 adults and 17 grandchildren. We all LOVED our stay at Rockin' R. It was a good balance of free time and scheduled activites. Scheduled activites included trail rides on horses with a group, family rodeo, campfire, archery, hayride,children's treasure hunt (needs a little more zing for the younger children), family lawn games (human foosball), arts and crafts for children, line dancing instruction and night with the band for dancing. 3 meals a day were served cafeteria style in the cozy dining area. Snacks such as cornbread and cinammon rolls were set out each morning. A bowl of fresh fruit, hot chocolate, and coffee were always out for the taking.
Highlights were the pond which I affectionately dubbed the swimming hole. That's where the kids swam. Two canoes at the pond were a big hit - the kids and adults were able to take them for a paddle any time we wanted. the family rodeo was the greastest. Adults had a barrel race on horses. Children donned helmet and vest for mutton busting, and the daring adults tested their limit on calf riding. The children just roamed the great outdoors at will as they played on the playground, had guided horse rides, played pool or foosball in the game room (adult surpervision required). We brought our onw 4-wheelers and dirt bikes for some entertainment. Adults took plenty of pictures or relaxed in the great hall. The greatest plus of all was the staff. If you want purebred cowboys/girls, you get them at Rockin' R . They are genuinely kind, hard-working people. All the staff are clean-cut and most of the staff are college students there for the summer.
The rooms were a disappointment at first but we quickly got used to them since the place was all around so great. My kids loved our full/twin bunkbed. My sister's room had a double bunkbed AND a triple bunkbed.
The day after we returned home, my 8 year old son asked when we would be going again. We will definitely return some time. My sister and her 5 children returend home with 2 of the ranch's puppies. One was affectionately named Rocky after Rockin'R.
