  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • My family & I were vacationing in Illinois & visited Clear Creek Ranch. I was nervous to have our three daughters, ages 12, 9 & 7, ride for the first time but Paul, the ranch owner, gave clear instructions on how to "drive" the horses. He was very kind to us, even answering my many text messages with last minute questions before our arrival. The horses were very well trained and well behaved. The two guides (who walked the whole trail with us!), Abby & Trish, were very knowledgeable & helpful. They didn't get agitated at all when our youngest daughter shrieked a few times. They even took our cell phones to take pictures for us in the ride! The ride itself was laid back & we went at the perfect pace for daughters. This mom wasn't worried at all! This was an excellent experience & very well worth the time & money. I wish we had something like this in our area!
  • The horses are well cared for and extremely well behaved. The staff was very friendly and patient with those in our group who got cocky and nearly fell off their horse. They (staff) also remained calm and polite while confronting a trio of riders who tried to leave without paying. There is no running with these horses, due to safety concerns and the ride is slow, so it is relaxing and beautiful.
  • Cedar Creek Ranch was wonderful. My family and I went horse back riding and felt very welcomed by Paul W. who owns the ranch. He was friendly and helpful with us City folks trying to learn to ride on horses. My sons enjoyed their ride very much. I was very grateful that the horses seem well behaved and rode calmly. Also the bar and grill restaurant has a friendly staff and delicious burgers and waffle fries. Thank you for a wonderful day at your ranch!
  • Great ranch. We will be back.
