A Family Gathering at Rankin Ranch.

A great reason to start planning a vacation is because it’s an easy and fun way to bring the family together. Having everyone together in one place with activities and amenities at your fingertips allows you to focus more on family tradition, bonding, and more during a family gathering. One place that excels at bringing a family together is Rankin Ranch. We can tell you all about our amenities and more, but we also have a recommendation for families that continue to return to our corner of California. It would be best if you started planning now. Our 2024 season runs from March 22 to Oct. 6. Here is why you should let us host your family gathering next year at Rankin Ranch.

Book Early For Your Family Get-Together

It’s best to get your reservation in as early as possible. Reservations are taken up to one year in advance. Early booking is recommended for large parties. We have 14 rooms and our Covered Wagon available for overnight guests with a maximum capacity of 40 – 55 for meals and activities. If you reserve our entire accommodations for your group, we can plan our activities to meet your needs. However, we’ve also been the site for smaller family reunions. 

Traveling, Family Bonding, Activities

Rankin Ranch is located in the central part of California. This makes it easy for Californians to drive or fly to their destination. Many family members fly from across the country to Los Angeles (2.5 hours from the Ranch) or to Bakersfield (1 hour away) and drive up to the Ranch to join their family. 

We have plenty of exciting activities for your family to do and bond over. Here’s a brief preview of what you can expect when you stay with us.

  • Horseback Riding
  • Lake Swimming
  • Fishing
  • Hiking
  • Indoor Horse Racing
  • Horseshoe Tournament
  • Volleyball, 
  • Ping Pong,
  • Bingo

Children Activities

We understand that you might want to take a break from entertaining your children or, instead, they want to explore the Ranch amenities independently. We provide a safe space for children to have fun on their own. Our counselors are on duty from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and again from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and have planned activities for ages 4 through 11. You can also reserve a babysitter for an additional fee upon availability. While you are away, they will enjoy arts and crafts, nature hikes, scavenger hunts, treasure hunts, talent shows, swim meets, and more.
