Elk Mountain Ranch, an Excellent Dude Ranch for Families
We are a very family-oriented guest ranch. In concert with our regular ranch activity program we offer a full kids’ program for children ages 3-7 years of age. Two children’s counselors will offer youngsters a supervised, fun-filled day of activity for their vacation. Children 8 and older are usually able to participate in our regular ranch activities, but are always welcome to join this program.
What makes us a great dude ranch for families? Our Children’s Program! It offers kids riding in the arena, hiking, fishing, arts and crafts, and caring for the petting zoo animals while still ensuring plenty of quality family time. On Wednesday, the children’s program heads to the local Hot Spring Pools and Water Slide (adults are welcome too)!
A week of supervised activities, just for the kiddos!
