Equine Vacations!

Bar W Guest Ranch
The Bar W Guest Ranch is open year-round and ready to show you what Western hospitality is all about! At the Bar W, horses are the center of attention and riding is our focus. All riding abilities are welcome and daily trail rides, horsemanship lessons, barrel racing, and cow sorting are offered. Out of the saddle, a variety of Western activities are available, including: swimming, fly casting lessons, archery, skeet shooting, and roping lessons. Activities continue into the evening with barbecue dinners, square dancing, country singers, s’mores around the campfire, and wagon rides. During the summer months families and children are the heart of the ranch. Cowpokes learn to explore nature with our kid’s counselors who guide them on animal care, nature walks, crafts, fishing lessons, chores, and horse painting. Spring and fall are adult-oriented with themed weeks including; Cowgirl Up, Cattle Drives, Adults Only, and Photography Weeks. The Bar W is renowned for superb customer service, intimate size, down-home cooking, and well-rounded activity selection.
