  • Rent one of our canoes, kayaks, or stand-up paddleboards, and spend a day out on the lake.
  • If you aren’t quite ready to let go of winter, you can still go skiing at HooDoo Ski Area before they close for the season in April.
  • See signs of spring all around you on a hiking adventure. There are several trails both on the ranch and in nearby forests to explore, including Black Butte Lookout Trail, Sisters Tie Trail, and the Proxy Falls Trail.
  • Saddle up and let professional wranglers from Black Butte Stables take you on a classic horseback ride on forested Central Oregon trails.
  • Enjoy a bit of friendly competition as you tee off on one of our on-site golf courses. In addition to two courses to choose from, we also have a putting course that golfers young and old will enjoy.
