Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch

Why do our guests keep coming back? Mostly because of the way they feel when they are here - just like family!  Nestled in the Plumas National Forest, Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch offers horseback riding, wagon rides, fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, skeet shooting, cookouts, campfire sing-alongs and even frog racing, all in a rustic ranch setting.  

Set on 600 acres of forest and pasture land, a fishing pond and creeks, our all-inclusive rates include ranch cookhouse dining, cookouts on the trail, campfire sing-alongs, country western, line and swing dancing, and a kiddie corral for the young â��uns. Choose from 1 and 2 bedroom cabins or cozy lodge rooms.  

Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch has been a vacation getaway since 1962.  Offering generations of families who want a dude ranch vacation that includes something to do for everyone in the whole family is very important to us.   We are located near the Feather River Canyon in the beautiful High Sierra.  

Greenhorn Ranch also offers the perfect setting for meetings, business retreats, family reunions, mountain weddings and other special events. Check out our new Equine Guided Learning program the most effective meeting and retreat activity since the ropes course!
