Dude Ranch Life

Greenhorn Ranch is a premier guest ranch in Northern California’s Lost Sierra. Established in 1962, we’ve built our reputation on providing refined comforts and relaxed adventures in a spectacular natural setting. As a long-time member of the Dude Ranch Association, we take pride in serving you with warm, welcoming Western hospitality. While we offer traditional ranch pleasures, such as horseback trail rides guided by experienced wranglers, riding lessons, fishing, and fishing instruction, we also offer you a variety of other contemporary indulgences. Some of our unique activities include: skeet shooting, electric mountain biking, archery, gold panning, and whiskey tastings. With 600 acres and access to over 500,000 acres of public lands for riding and exploring, we’re ready to help you unwind and create lifelong memories at the finest dude ranch in California.

Greenhorn Ranch Webcam

We’re excited to share live views from our corral, our upper fishing pond, and the Greenhorn Saloon Deck.

Just imagine yourself mounting your horse for an exciting ride through the Sierras, practicing your fly-rod casts at the edge of the pond, and enjoying a cool beverage in the afternoon shade of the trees just outside the Saloon.

We can’t wait for you to see these views in person!

Experience Greenhorn

I loved hanging out with guest and employees together in the afternoons before dinner. Waking up to the view of the lake in the morning from our cabin could never get old.
