Nearly every reviewer mentions how much they love the food and dining experience at Elkhorn Ranch. You too, will probably describe your food with words like "gourmet," "exceeds expectations" and "substantial."

You'll love mealtimes during your all-inclusive stay here.

The lodgepole dining hall rings with the echoes of fun-filled conversation and laughter whether morning, noon or night.

Part of the magic of mealtime comes as children join other children on one side of the dining hall under the care of the "Peanut Butter Mothers."

Adults sit with other adults, whether family or new friends, on the other end of the hall.

A parade of healthy, but hearty recipes make for endless variety on the buffet line.

Fresh ingredients make every ranch specialty taste like it came right from the farm.

Although Chef Michael’s variety suits most, we can also accommodate most special diets, dietary needs and preferences with advance notice.
