Kara Creek Ranch is an authentic working ranch where we run cattle on over 70,000 acres. The activities on the ranch are tied to the actual needs of the ranch and vary based on season.

Depending on the day’s activities, lunch is typically served on the trail and consists of sandwiches, chips, cookies, and raw vegetables. Each day is rounded out with a large dinner served family-style in the main dining area or outside if it is BBQ night! Vegetarians and special dietary needs are most welcome and catered for too.
