A group of 9 of us headed up to the Flying U Ranch, my friend and I had never been there before and didn't have a ton of experience. We were lucky to be going with a few people that had been going for years.
You really can't beat the value. For $180 a night that includes 3 meals, full day of horse back riding, entertainment in the evenings (Square dancing, bonfires, movie nights, drinks at the saloon...) incredible!
The other guests you meet staying there will often tell you they've been coming here since the mid 80's, 90's - i think that's the true testament of how great this place is.
Guest cabins are rustic. Bed, wood stove, bed side table, light, window, door. Basic but everything you could need. Meals are served in the main lodge, there is a great room where you can play cards/games.
Things to bring: Jeans (not so old that they rip when getting on your horse... how embarrassing!) Leather boots, Carrots (treats for the horse), bug spray, camera, Pillow/extra blanket - I like my fluffy pillow from home and found i was a bit cold at night (too tire to light a fire) so i was pleased to have brought a wool blanket. Other than that they have everything else you could need!
I hope more people visit this beautiful part of the province, this was my first time to the Caribou and certainly not the last. The family running the ranch does a great job, I hope it continues to thrive for many years!
