We stayed one night at the Hualapai Ranch, 5 adults and two boys ages 10 and 6. The cabins were basic but clean and relatively comfortable. The boys absolutely loved the " ranch" environment. There are Lasso lessons and kids over age 9 can try to ride the bucking bronco. By staying there, we were able to get the 8 am shuttle to the Skywalk and do that while it was not crowded and before it got too hot. I've seen some negative reviews of the Ranch and suggest you do a bit of research including reading the positive reviews as it is not for everyone, if you have young kids, this is a perfect choice. The dinner was a choice of baked chicken or pork ribs served with a corn muffin and a cookie. There was also a choice of mashed potatoes, beans or macaroni salad for a side. There was a vegetarian option. There is NO alcohol allowed on the ranch so keep,that in mind. There was complimentary bottled water in our room and unlimited soft drinks. Breakfast is a couple of simple choices. In the evening there is a campfire with cowboys to tell a tale and sing songs. You can also roast marshmallows and make s'mores. The staff was friendly and efficient and the gift shop has a selection of reasonably priced items. At night there is dark and the stars literally pop out to greet you. Each cabin has a porch to sit and enjoy the quiet. There are some extras of horseback riding and wagon ride that we did not have time to try.
