I've never been to a dude ranch, so the first thing I had to do was find a website of one so I could see what's available.

The first thing I learned after seeing the prices at The Ranch at Rock Creek is that going dude ranching is expensive! You and your significant other can go to Mexico on the Flakes Trip for a lot cheaper!

They do, however, offer some things that you won't get at Mushaben Ranch Camp. They offer things like fly fishing, horseback riding, poll, hot tub, and there's even a fitness center.

And he has no fitness center because you won't need it. We guarantee a good night's sleep with each and every visit to Mushaben Ranch Camp.

Hope to see you soon. Mushaben Ranch Camp: Where you don't get no warning shot.
