We have 34 RV and Trailer slots. They are beautifully wooded and private with electric hook ups and water close by for each site. Many of our sites are drive through for larger rigs. Our camp sites are well sheltered and pristine. We can fill the entire camp and it still feels cozy and private. We are even stocking our pond with Catfish for even more relaxation after a long trail ride. Each site is close to our large communal fire pit for campfire gatherings. We sure hope you bring any musical talent you may have to share with us. Mike is modest about it but has a real musical talent. Nothing brings it all together like a great trail ride, old and new friends, good food, and music. That's what Rafter D Ranch is all about!
Our open and safe pipe corrals are all new and ready to house your horse while visiting Rafter D Ranch. High walled so they can be tarped if necessary for a cozy home rain or shine. Horses love these corrals because they are open and they can socialize with their friends. They do not feel boxed in at a new place like a barn stall.
