Your Family Dude Ranch Vacation
Alisal Ranch is made for kids. From our family-friendly trail rides to our authentic Barnyard, families will discover countless ways to make memories on the ranch. Participate in the daily egg gathering, make Old West arts and crafts, or lead your kids around the corral on horseback, all staples of Alisal Ranch’s one-of-a-kind family dude ranch vacations.
