Western Experience with Southern Hospitality

Near the pristine Buffalo National River wilderness near Jasper, Arkansas, and as seen nationally on HGTV, ESPN2, Midwest Living, Ladies Home Journal, and Family Fun magazines, Horseshoe Canyon Ranch is owned and operated by the Johnson family, HCR offers guests a “Western experience with Southern Hospitality.”

6 Days of Activities

The six-day week includes wonderful food prepared by our Chef, lots of riding and rock climbing, and comfortable, rustic log cabins with spectacular views of rolling meadows and high cliffs. Shorter stays available. Other activities include campfires, canoeing, hiking, elk viewing, cookouts, shooting, Via Ferrata, zip-lining, river swimming, petting zoo, cook-outs, fishing pond, lodge games, and more. The Ranch has a pool and hot-tub too. Credit cards accepted. We recommend early booking.

There’s nothing like horseback rides, experiencing Horseshoe Canyon. “Your” horse will be chosen with your particular needs in mind, so you can comfortably enjoy each scenic ride. Enjoy canoeing down Buffalo National River. Rock climbing is popular year-round, scale large cliffs and peer at breathtaking terrain that seems endless. After a full day of activity, three good meals, you can relax on your porch, hit the hot tub, or just snuggle down and sort out the day.
