Activities for Children

Horseback Riding for Children

Our horses love a little snack from an appreciative young rider. We have over 40 gentle mountain horses that your kid's will fall in love with here at Clear Creek Ranch. Whether they are horseback riding or just interacting by the corral, it will be an experience they won't soon forget.

And of course who would not want to clown around at the rodeo down at the corral, where even the young'uns get in on the act.

The youngest rider will have a great time, as well as give Mom and Dad. The perfect photo-op, in the corral where younger riders enjoy a safe ride and gain confidence and experience. "Howdy Partner - you're lookin' like a professional Wrangler already."

Custom Paint Job

The kids decide to give our calm horses a chassis upgrade with some harmless finger-paints and a little creativity. Our horses don't seem to mind and is an old hat at entertaining the kids. They might get a little wet but they always have fun.

Our Game Building

has a covered area for ping pong, pool tables, an inside activity room, restroom and a covered porch overlooking the campfire area. 

On Our Property

Stocked Trout Pond

Our private pond and nearby South Toe River offer fishing at its best for any age angler.
What kid would not love to spend some quality time with the folks down at the Old Fishing Pond. Especially one stocked with hungry wild Mountain Trout. Sure to create some awesome memories and fantastic fun.

Your kids will love our "Kid's Only Cook-Outs." While mom and Dad are enjoying an Adults only dinner with all the fixings- the kid's can enjoy their favorites cooked over the campfire followed by the ultimate in outdoor cuisine...THE MARSHMALLOW ROAST!

Clear Creek Teepee

Yes, we even have a real Teepee for the young folks to play in. Flexible, fun and interesting activities are provided for children 5 years and older. Some of the activities include supervised horseback riding, nature hikes and fishing, horse painting, hay rides & a trip to the Gem Mines. This keeps youngsters busy and amused while allowing Mom and Dad to share ranching experiences with the family, yet still have time to be on their own. When it's time to head for home, you may just have to peel the young'uns off the front porch rail. They're not always ready to leave.
