Cedar Creek Ranch Reviews
We enjoyed the trail ride through the woods, and even across a small stream. Our guides actually walked near us and took lots of great photos. more »

Went on a horseback ride here & it was awesome! Our guide, Paul was great! He explained everything we needed to know very simply, clearly & had a good personality. On our ride he made sure everyone was safe & knew all the horses very well & what they would do. He helped guide the rider to steer the horse. Very well trained and nice horses! The ride was awesome. Learned some history along the way & went through a couple creeks, down & up some hills. Nothing too treacherous but perfect for a wonderful experience. Had a great time!!
Whenever my wife and I find ourselves in the area camping, we always stop by at least once a season for a horseback ride and lunch at the Gunsmoke Grill. If you're looking for a spot to take the family on a horseback riding trip, I recommend Cedar Creek Ranch. Just be sure to call and schedule ahead! The trail doesn't change much between trips, besides seasonal tree colors, but it's always a fun time and the staff is helpful, sociable, and happy to take pictures.
My sister, and I spent a day at Cedar Ranch and went Horse Back riding. I have been to many horse back riding trails over the years, up to including riding on a private beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C. last year. My experience at Cedar Creek Ranch by far was my best experience ever. We also had lunch and the burger was outstanding. We were even given instructions on how to ride our horses which made my ride more enjoyable. I will now make sure my toes and ball of my feet remain in the stir-ups in a "V" position. Thanks to the tour folks that even went as far as taking our photos with our cell phone cameras. You guys run an incredible ranch and it was a privilege to have this experience at Cedar Creek Ranch. I will definitely come back next year.
We have nothing but great things to say about the team at Cedar Creek Ranch. We signed up taking our 7 & 9 year olds for their first ever ride. They were VERY nervous before we started the ride and the team took a bit more time with them and helped to get them a little more calm before starting. They even had one of the team members, Abby, walk along side the kids during the ride to help remind them of what to do along the ride. Needless to say, our kids all had an amazing time and we wouldn't hesitate recommending this ranch to others. It was a holiday weekend and we called about a week in advance and they only had 2 slots left that could accommodate our group of 7, so I'd recommend calling asap to set up your reservations. Abby also mentioned that there was going to be a new trail opening in the fall of 2017.
A super cool place with lovely animals especially the ones in the back of the house. An amazing view of the forest and Prarie our state is known to have! Amazing historical sites that the instructor taught us about and he gave us very useful information, especially for the kids. The worker's are so nice and understanding very polite and professional! Cedar Creek Ranch has a great restraunt that I definitely recommend to everyone that wants a refreshing drink and good classic meal. Paul the owner is such a nice guy and is always busy and I'm not surprised because I bet other people love this ranch just as much as I do. Its nice to see that he still takes time to lead a trail and spend time with his customers. The horses are well trained but are stubborn as heck! Haha, they love their leafy greens that's for sure! But I do understand why they don't run their horses due to safety. Just knowing that they do take precautions especially with new riders, makes me know that this place is safe. I'm definitely, coming back.
