Amazing family visit

Ottawa, Canada

We were in Dallas and had one night to get out of town so chose the Wildcatter. The drive to get there was easy and pleasant. Since we only had one day, we wanted to fit in as many activities as possible. We were paired with Clint who very patiently and encouragingly, led our family (2 adults, 2 boys aged 12 and 14) through a series of activities we signed up for. None of us had any experience with guns, horses, etc. and yet we left with terrific instruction and a thoroughly fun afternoon of shooting, archery, tomahawk and next morning horse ride. I thought the breakfast and dinner were delicious (elevated home cooking). Every member of the staff was lovely and hospitable. We were in a cabin and there was a lot of space inside and a great view in the back to enjoy over a couple beers. Despite it being January, we had a great soak in the hot tub. As an urban family from Canada, this was a perfect chance to do something different and outdoorsy with teenage boys. They both were really excited to tell people about the visit.

Thank you Wildcatter Ranch

I cannot believe this place doesn’t have a perfect 5 star rating. Our experience was perfect from the time we arrived to the moment we checked out. We arrived on Wednesday evening for a retreat for families of children with Down syndrome that started Thursday morning. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The cabins are great and the view from the back porch was incredible. On our retreat we had family activities of archery, clay shooting, tomahawk throw and of course horseback riding and feeding the longhorns. The staff running our activities were again top notch, patient and kind. Every meal from the biscuits and gravy at breakfast to the salads and steaks at dinner was delicious. Our absolute favorite employee was SHAWN...... Shawn just went above and beyond. She was so gracious with our kiddos and their special needs, she was happy to get us whatever we needed, she always had a huge smile on her face and it was genuine. What a wonderful weekend!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Wildcatter and SHAWN!!!
