We went here last February for five nights and it was our best family vacation ever. We have taken our kids 13 and 11, to Hawaii twice, Disney, Utah and more and all they ever ask for is to go back to Dixie Dude Ranch.

Our family visits to the Dixie Dude Ranch has been my favorite memory as a child. The family meals, the people that run the ranch, and the wonderful accommodations make this the perfect family vacation. My grandmother took me there for a week each year,...More

We went out for a 1 hour trail ride with our two kids, ages 8 and 5. This is the only place we found that would let me ride double with the 5 year old. We all loved it. Would highly recommend.

The staff couldn't be nicer and it is charming in a rustic way--very much like a real ranch. The food was excellent Texas country fare, great BBQ and a fried chicken Sunday lunch, complete with deviled eggs and pickles. Horseback riding was a great experience.

Rustic atmosphere full of family pictures - family owned for 100 years- We just went for the day but wished we had booked an overnight stay. Great family memories and cowboy pictures to remember for years to come
