California Dude Ranch Activities

Whether it’s horseback riding in the Sierras, fly fishing on a wild river, or hitting the backcountry on fat-tire electric mountain bikes, we are all about having fun. This is your chance to cut loose and give something new a try. Test your aim on our archery or skeet shooting ranges, savor the serenity of a forest hike, or play a round at one of our nearby championship golf courses. See what life is like on the ranch!

We have lots to do for your little ones too. From horse rides, leather working, and panning for gold to horseshoe painting and kiddie corral horse activities, there’s so much to keep kids engaged and excited. Greenhorn Ranch is the perfect spot for your next Northern California dude ranch vacation.

Sometimes you are in the mood for some simple pleasures. While we offer plenty of organized activities day and night, we also offer a variety of relaxed distractions you can do at your own pace. Spend a lazy afternoon by the pool, fling a few horseshoes in one of our four horseshoe pits, tempt fate with a game of giant Jenga, or take on friends and family with a spirited game of bean bag toss. There are plenty of things to do in Quincy, CA, and they’re all right here. Enjoy!

Availability of our activities changes with the seasons and the days of the week. For the most up-to-date information, please contact us directly. We can help you plan the perfect Northern California vacation with a visit to Greenhorn Ranch.

We Turned 60 in 2022!

Our dude ranch in Quincy, California, was founded in 1962 and serves as a getaway escape for families across the country. Let the Greenhorn Ranch help you to make memories that last a lifetime as we Celebrate our 60 year anniversary. 

Staff was always so helpful and courteous, beautiful sights and the horse back riding was amazing. Rode with two of my adult children and it was memorable. Loved it!!!
