If you are looking to "unplug", take unparalleled adventures, eat amazing meals, make family memories and gain new friendships , Horseshoe Canyon Ranch is the perfect place. It by far ranks as one of my family's favorite vacations. You are able to appreciate natures beauty from multiple perspectives whether it be on the back of your horse, high on top of a rock, your cabins front porch, from the via ferata or zip lining. However Horseshoe Canyon isn't just about the adventures and beautiful scenery. What makes it so special are the people. I rave just as much about the amazing adventures as I do the staff who I now feel are friends. Jason, kept the activities flowing smoothly, was an impressive rock climber and was all in all just a nice guy. Cam made sure that my first horseback ride went smoothly (I quietly admitted to him that I was nervous), Anna kept the trail rides organized and taught me how to manage my horse around barrels and in the arena. Chris, from France was fun to be around. We enjoyed learning French from him and teaching him how to play (American) football with an impromptu football game. Lucy, led a trail ride and kept us entertained (by the way she is an awesome published author). I enjoyed Jess's company while swimming at the river, on a trial ride -- and her voice.... WOW! She and Stephen sounded amazing playing music and singing around a campfire. Speaking of Stephen, his cooking was out of this world!!! Honestly, I enjoyed EVERYTHING he cooked. We talked about our day and shared stories with Cody over many evening meals. He also taught me how to crate climb (wow, google that if you don't know what it is). Kris with a K - how he did it, I am not really sure.... He was a super skilled and knowledgeable climber and was able to express himself so well that people like me could actually experience the thrill of rock climbing. Priceless. Each of these people, positively touched my life and I genuinely feel their futures are bright. This is just a small demonstration of the amazing relationships that were formed during an outstanding stay at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. I already wish I was back there!

It was not hard to get the grandkids out of bed the first morning when the cabin was surrounded by the cutest little goats, nor when they were invited to be at the barn at 7 am to feed and groom the horses. My son and I got up at 6 am each day to drink coffee and enjoy the spectacular mountain view from our porch. There is a wide variety of horseback riding, mountain climbing, and swimming/canoeing opportunities at all skill levels that keeps everyone engaged. The food is incredible too. But the staff really make the place special: from the head wrangler to the head climber to everyone else, all are super friendly and incredibly hardworking.

Room tip: Try to get cabins lower down the hillside for less walking, but it depends on size of party.

While we didn't stay there we did go out there for their fireworks show and it was spectacular. The best in the area. K looked around and said the facility was nice. There were a lot of guests staying there and when we arrived they were mounted on horses and headed up the mountain to watch the fireworks. Great time.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in the Pine Knot cabin on the ranch. You couldn't get much more secluded and a peaceful setting. The cabin was fully outfitted with a kitchen, grill, Wi-Fi, and the all important air-conditioning in the hot Arkansas summer. Very close to hiking trails.

You'll find the setting is both surprising and comfortable.The staff is experienced, gracious, courteous and incredibly first rate. (Their horses aren't bad, either.) There often seems to be a unique blend of new visitors and families returning. Bring a spirit of adventure and you'll find yourself with great memories at every turn.
