We came for a field trip with our homeschool co-op group, and we had a blast! They did guided tour stops with a feature on Pioneer living and Thanksgiving, which were actually pretty interesting... but our littles especially loved playing in the free range areas!...More

We had a great time! We all zip lined today! We also caught fish, searched thru a corn maze, enjoyed a fast draw trick shot show, rode a tiny train, and lots more. The ranch is a serene, beautiful setting, I highly recommend.
