This summer Alisal Ranch is pleased to offer more of what you are looking for to make your stay unforgettable.
For the youngsters there is a whole slew of complimentary programs in the barnyard. Kids can enjoy everything from collecting fresh eggs, to sudsing up our pot bellied pig in our Hog Wash, to interactive learning sessions where they can get up close and personal with our giant tortoise, leopard gecko and our exotic bearded dragons.
Of course we still have our ever popular Lil’ Wrangler Club, where parents can get a little daytime relaxing and little ones (3-10) get to enjoy supervised fun, like arts and crafts, sports games, refreshing water activities, and more. In the evening our Kiddie Korral kicks into gear (for children ages 3-6) where our kid wranglers, keep the little ones smiling with activities, crafts, games and stories. For the older kids (ages 6-12) our evening programs include a Kid’s Lake BBQ with a tasty BBQ dinner, paddle boat, fun games on the lawn and gooey delicious s’mores. This year, a big addition to our children’s program is our new Kids Adventure Course, where youngsters 5-12, (supervised by our trained staff), will safely get the chance to climb, zip line and get some “air time” on our kids-sized ropes course.
If you’re coming this summer with a teen, we have all the activities to keep them happy and active. During the day, in addition to the regular ranch activities, like golf, fishing, boating and swimming, we also offer special teen events. One favorite is our teen Saddle to Paddle program, which includes a horseback ride to the lake followed by stand-up paddle boarding or pedal boats. In the evenings, teens can enjoy all sorts of supervised fun, from Teen Movie and Game Night, to Teen Lake BBQ and Teen Campfire Hang Out.
Of course the majority of our summer activities are for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you want to take a private guided ride into the backcountry, or experience the thrill of team sorting, roping or barrel racing, we have a riding adventure for all ages and skill levels. On the cool waters of our private lake we have great boating and plenty of casting and fly fishing. In another area of the lake, we offer air rifle and archery shooting ranges.
Part of the beauty of Alisal Ranch is being surrounded by amazing countryside, award-winning wineries, and charming little villages. To explore our surroundings, you can pedal around on a scenic guided road bike tour, with a stop or two for a little wine tasting. You can also just sign up for our new Eat, Drink and Shop program, where we provide transportation to the quaint town of Los Olivos for an afternoon of sipping, dining and shopping. Another feature you won’t want to miss, is our newly completed deluxe fire pit. Stop by, gaze at the heavens, while munching on gourmet s’mores, or sipping your favorite spirits. We call it Campfire & Cocktails. You are bound to call it your new favorite Alisal tradition.
