The separate bedroom comes with a queen size bed, an additional sleeping loft with two single hand crafted Log beds & a full bathroom. Maximum occupancy of a Cabin is 4 to 5 people.

Horses are our Teachers! Horses don’t care how much you know, but they know how much you care! We use the Natural Horsemanship philosophy, based on the principles of Tom & Bill Dorrance, Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman and Pat Parelli. Relationship and partnership are very important on the trails. We need to trust our horses and our horses need to trust their rider.

Horseback riding:

We like to encourage our guests to participate with the handling of our horses. Our natural horsemanship approach starts with how we catch the horse. Daily grooming, giving them a bath after a hot day ride are all part of the horse experience and keeping it natural gives it a harmonious dimension for both rider and horse.

The first ride starts in the Ranch Arena, where we will share how to communicate with your horse, the basics and safety on the trails. All our horses do not have bits in their mouths, we make use of Bosals and Hackamores. The extensive trail system is suitable for both beginner and intermediate/advanced riders. We will make sure we set you up for a great ride during your ranch vacation! Our rides will take you to beautiful Lakes, Forest Trails, Natural Meadows, Hill Tops and View Points!

Gourmet Food:

Our Wild Horse Saloon is the place where we all eat together. You can socialize, relax in front of the fireplace, or play Pool, Poker, Fuss ball, Air hockey or watch a movie in our Games-Room!
The cheeriest chef (Martin) in the West will greet you every morning and evening. Every meal is prepared with pride. If you’re hungry around here, “It’s your own fault!” You’ll enjoy fresh breads, salads, fruits, vegetables, & freshly baked pastries.

Campbell Hills Guest Ranch is the perfect seasonal get away to get in touch with horse and soul through natural horsemanship. Enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking or hiking in the wilderness.  Spend an afternoon Kayaking on Campbell lake or  bird-watching. We offer ‘rent the ranch’ for family reunions, bachelorette groups or other special life events or  just take advantage of plain rest and relaxation!
