After 15 visits and 3 generations this is not only the best run and most fun resort ranch to visit, it is the only one. We have been in summer and winter and love the accommodations and activities. Our kids loved it and now their kids love it. It is a very special place that creates memories of a lifetime. From horseback riding and instructions to fly fishing, you will not be disappointed in your stay at the C Lazy U.
I will start by saying our family would go back today!
We were treated like part of the family from the moment we arrived and were greeted by a warm and thoughtful team who immediately made us feel at home. You are in one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine.
Our 10 and 8 year old boys absolutely loved the daily activities of riding horses, hatchet throwing, swimming, fishing and of course the 4pm ice cream bar. The camp counselors made our boys feel safe and comfortable and we felt at ease knowing they were taken care of each day.
The cabins are beautiful and comfortable and we loved that they did not have a TV or phone and allow you to be "off-the-grid" and focused on your family and environment.
We loved riding horses (and neither of us had been on a horse in 30 years) each day. We went form learning how to get on a horse the first day to trotting and loping through the woods on the fourth day and it was exhilarating!
The meals that were prepared each day were top notch and you can't miss the cowboy coffee at 7am each day.
Lastly, we felt so fortunate to meet so many other families that week and we now consider them friends!
There are plenty of beach vacations out there and this is not one of them, but this is a one-of-a-kind destination that will have you coming back for sure and leave you with life long stories and friendships.
The GM - David Craig - sets the example for service and it is ingrained in the entire team that is there to serve and share in the experience.
