Exploring the ranch in the UTV was so much fun. There are plenty of trails with various skill levels. We spent about 4 hours driving around on their 15 miles of trails!. We even saw some deer! They were just hanging out in the meadow. So make sure to keep your eyes open. They offer 2 person, 4 person safari style, and 4 person covered John Deere Gators. Available to Rent for hourly, half day, full day.
Deer Lake Cabins Ranch has bass, catfish, crappie, and brim in their private fishing lakes. You can either go out on the lake with one of their trolling motor fishing boats or you can fish from the docks that are right off the cabins! They also sell live bait at the office if you like to fish with live worms. The motor boats are available to rent for hourly, half day, full day.
We spent the afternoon on the lake and there are plenty of great places to fish! We decided to go to the far end of the lake and fish. Don’t worry it’s not that far…. There we found plenty of stumps and other places that the fish love to hide around. Plus just being out on the lake was so relaxing. Of course we won’t talk about who caught the most fish!
You can also enjoy swimming, paddle boating, riding stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and cruiser bikes, explore hiking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds, and more. There is something for everyone. The great part is everything is close by and most activities are within walking distance from the cabins. Check out the rest of their activities on their website.
They even an area where you can pet the animals. There were some goats and sheep for us to play with! They loved the animal crackers we were given to feed them. Also there is a chicken coop that you can go look for eggs!
