Outdoor Activities

The terrain is varied from high, sandy dunes to lush green meadows with fens and bogs just waiting for you to explore. The trails are cattle trails, usually leading to the nearest windmills.

Cattle Branding a Social Event!

You can bring your own horses to ride through the hills at your leisure. You may enjoy helping to move the herds into different pastures, or maybe helping to roundup the cows and calves for branding. In the springtime the brandings are a big neighborhood social gathering. It is where all of the neighbors come together to help get everyone’s calves branded. The branding is done to mark the calves to show ownership. The hard work will be done by noon, and then the usual branding day feast begins! The ladies of the neighboring ranches bring their specialty pies, desserts, and salads, to help out the hostess who usually provides a tantalizing roaster full of beef, roasted to perfection, along with all the trimmings. Horseshoes, cards, and conversation fill up the rest of the afternoon.

Canoe, Kayak, or Tanking

There is a paddle boat for use on the on-site, spring-fed lakes. It is great for fishing, or just to sun or enjoy the spectacular sunsets. Canoe, kayak, or tanking trips down the Middle Loup River can be arranged. This is a good river for novices. The Dismal River is great canoe trip, but is best tackled by the experienced users. The trips take several hours for completion.

Nebraska Sand Hill Golfing

The Mullen Golf Course is less than a half hour from the ranch. It is a very fine, community golf course that welcomes guests at any time; except, when engaged in a tournament, or if hosting a planned activity. It is a nine hole, grass course, challenging, and fun to play. While you are in Mullen you may be able to enjoy a tour through the Mullen Historical Society Museum. The world renowned Sand Hill Golf Club, a private club, is about 20 miles South of Mullen and if they are not too busy, you might be able to take a cart up the hill to Ben’s Porch and enjoy the spectacular vista of the Crenshaw designed links golf course.

The Dismal River Club is a new 18 hole private, links-type golf club , southwest of Mullen about 20 miles. It opened in July of 2006. It is a beautiful work-in-progress and well worth a trip out there.

The Prairie Club, 402-376-1387,, located about 10 miles south of Valentine, NE.

For the more energetic guests there is Badminton; Croquet; a basketball hoop; a new game called Sand Hill Golf that is fun for the whole family; and Horseshoe Pitching.
During inclement weather there is a good supply of games, cards, and puzzles to help while away the rain, wind, or snowy weather.

Blue Rock shooting is a great activity for the professional shooter, as well as the novice. The ranch will provide the blue rock and trap operator. You will need to bring your own guns and ammo. There is additional cost for this activity and times for shooting will be coordinated with the trap operator.
Nebraska Skies A Stargazing Smorgasbord!

Away from the big city and bright lights, the Sand Hills are a stargazer’s paradise for viewing the universe! Nicknamed Big Sky Country, it is one of the best places in the United States to view the stars. There is no interference from “city lights” for many miles. The stargazers like to come to the ranch for a lengthy visit just to set up their huge telescopes and monitor the nightly, goings-on in the universe. The annual Nebraska Star Party is held each year just 25 miles north of the ranch at Merritt Reservoir on Hwy 97. It attracts stargazers from all over the United States and has been a huge success.
