Where can you go with young children, teenagers, adults and grandparents and make sure that all of them have fun? I can't think of too many places. Rocking Horse Ranch is one of them. It is not cheap. It does not have the biggest waterpark or the largest lake. But, it offers a great variety of activities, all of which... More

I originally booked this trip last minute so didn't get the Sunday-Friday as I had hoped. Sunday-Wednesday was our initial booking. I went with my 2 girls -6 & 7, and having the kids camp available made the world of difference. My younger daughter loved it and my 7yr old wanted to stat with me, which was convenient because then... More

I truly have no words that can properly thank the staff of the stables at Rocking Horse Ranch - particularly Rob, Lisa, and Scott. We went to RHR so that my 8 year-old could ride, since he loved horseback riding at camp. When we got to the stables my son was scared to get on a horse, since the riding... More

My family and I recently visited Rocking Horse Ranch. It had been 20+ years since we were there last. It was great then and it is FANTASTIC now. The rooms and buildings were updated, clean, and beautifully rustic. The grounds were pristine and beautifully landscaped. The food was excellent and abundant. The staff were all warm, friendly and accommodating. Certain... More

This is one of our families favorite vacation spots. Less than 2 hours from NYC, we love the fact that we can go horse back riding several times a day and that there are activities all day. The kids went bungee jumping, boating, fishing, water skiing and of course swimming!! They had a huge bunch of balloons and happy birthday... More

In March, I called to book a trip to the RHR. The woman I spoke with told me that she could not meet my request of adjoining rooms, but she could give us rooms right next to each other. I pressed her, asking, "Can you absolutely guarantee that our rooms will be next to each other?". She said, "Absolutely". Unfortunately,... More

We went for Thanksgiving last year. The food was great, tons of choices and good quality. The staff was super friendly. There was no shortage of fun activities for the whole family.
