This is a great place to have a family reunion and that's exactly why we came. This is a peaceful guest ranch and the people who work here are incredibly friendly. We enjoyed our stay and our large family pretty much had the place all to ourselves. The family was able to participate in a hilarious "rodeo". The horses are trail horses so it took a lot to get them to trot which made it fun especially for those horseback riding novices (which was pretty much everyone). They also have a dining facility in which the food was only okay. The last dinner was BBQ chicken and THAT was absolutely delicious. They have several types of sleeping facilities. They have cabins which are very nice, a guest house which had old military mattresses on cots, a motel, and a lodge. You can also camp in your trailer, which we did, and they have a couple with full hook ups. The facilities in general are slightly dated but maintained and clean. They do need to improve the recreation room. It was filled with a bunch of chairs and wasn't very inviting. They had ping pong and pool tables but lacked adequate equipment to use them. My kids still had fun in there though. We did go on a trail ride. The horses were well maintained and the ranch hands do ensure safety providing helmets to those who want them. The horses were great and the trail ride went well without incident but unfortunately the trail was kind of boring.
