At the Ranch, surrounded by towering pines, rushing rivers and tall peaks, it’s not surprising that the accent is on fresh ingredients and cuisine that satisfies hearty appetites fueled by adventure. Our menus are rich with local produce, grilled prime cuts of meat and freshly caught fish. The portions are ample, the flavors bold and satisfying, and you never leave hungry. Join us at our table, and savor the good times. We’re honored to nourish your body and spirit.

Dine under the tall trees and shining stars

The near-perfect weather in our area, and the surroundings of the Ranch allow you to comfortably enjoy dining outside under the shade of the tall trees and in close proximity to the lake.

Enjoy the warm glow of the evening sky during supper, and then dance the night away to live music under the stars.

We encourage guests to inform us of any dietary restrictions upon booking. Have questions about our food service? Contact us.

Mother and daughter roasting marshmallows over a campfire at Greenhorn Ranch in California


A Greenhorn Ranch nightly tradition, s’mores are as much an actibity as they are a deliciously gooey treat that kids and adults enjoy alike.

What better way to warm up the cool nights and finish off a day of adventure.

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!!!
