School's out special


Bar-J Ranch offers guest accommodations with a real ranch life experience to enjoy. Our slogan is: “Come and do what we do”, and we mean it. Whether we are branding cattle, trail riding, fishing in the pond or just relaxing around the campfire, we are sure that you will have a very special and unique experience. The Bar-J is especially kid-friendly. We have a place away from the hustle and bustle of the world where a kid can get dirty and explore nature in a safe atmosphere. Moms and dads can relax while their children have fun under the watchful eye of a Bar-J Wrangler.


If you just want to relax and do nothing or want to horse back ride this is the place to go! The owners and ranch hands are awesome people. The cabins are very cute and clean and you can't beat the price! If you are here Wed. or Sunday you can even attend church. At the moment I'm sitting by the fire listening to one of the interns play piano and sing. Need I say more?

We and our kids had a great time today! Barbara was great in helping the kids feel comfortable and at ease. It was a relaxing trial ride. My horse Trooper loved to eat grass and he was such a good horse. Brooklynn was able to ride by herself and she had fun riding her horse. Ian rode in the front with daddy and had a fun time. We will be back next Summer!

If you want to go somewhere that makes you feel like family then this is the place for you! I KNEW I would feel like a fish out of water but that wasn't the case at all. This ranch family goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. They kept the kiddos busy riding horses, gathering eggs, ANYTHING they wanted! Parents can get involved in the fun or relax! VERY SAFE place.
