Broken Rock Ranch hosted our annual open house. We offered a BBQ lunch for those in attendance and had an opportunity drawing for a FREE half day at the ranch!

With our first year under our belts with more groups having used our facility and the reservations that we have already received this is going to be a great year.
The largest group that is coming this spring is a group of 200 teenagers.

"We just stayed at Broken Rock Ranch it's a nice rustic camp setting (with bathrooms & showers) there was plenty of room for our group, in fact the boys choose to pitch tents & the girls got the bunk beds. The kids had a great time swimming in the large pool, playing soccer, volleyball, & ping pong. We had a bonfire & sang songs & roasted marshmallows in the outdoor amphitheater. we choose to have the Ranch cook all our meals & were they yummy, we could of cooked our own meals they have a fantastic kitchen. I am planning on coming back with my own events: scrapbooking , family parties, they have a very nice lodge with a fire place (it looks like a tree)."
