If Disney operated a dude ranch, it would be like Rocking Horse Ranch
. First opened in 1958, its owners wanted to skip the rustic and provide a dude ranch with family fun. Not only does the ranch offer unlimited horseback riding, trail rides, hay rides and pony rides, but it features Wild West Shows, bonfire sing-alongs and marshmallow roasts. Oh, but that's not all. Enjoy the indoor water park, an outdoor heated pool, a heated kiddie pool, a lake with Big Banana water rides (fishing, kayaking and water skiing, too), mini-golf, tennis, beach volleyball, a game room, Wii... the list goes on and on. This ranch is also open during the winter months for exciting cold-weather activities, like skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing.
Western-themed rooms are found in the motel-style Oklahoma Building or the main building with two queen-sized beds, bunk beds or a six-person sleeper. Children's programs for infants to kids age 12 include camp-style activities like crafts, hikes, sports and games. Babysitting and a children's nursery are also available (for an additional fee).
