Hear about what people have to say


  • If you’re looking for a genuine chance to participate in working ranch operations, Kara Creek Ranch is the right place. Not only do they graciously “meet you where you’re at” with horseback riding experience, they spend every meal, every evening at their saloon, and every day out in the Black Hills making you feel like you’re one of them. Hard working, good people, you’ll come to think of as family.

  • I recommend every single thing about this place. Ride fantastic horses. Big family style dinners of food made from scratch. Relaxing evenings in the saloon with live music. It’s all amazing.

  • Authenticity, beautiful landscapes, beautiful sites, and very nice people.

  • 10 stars, and more! If you are looking for an authentic, working ranch and cowboy experience, Kara Creek is for you. Everyone who works and helps run the ranch are truly kind, genuine and extremely generous and helpful with their time and knowledge. A week goes so fast here and I’ve walked away with new friends from across the world. Breath taking views, wonderful guests, horses and experience all around. I can’t wait to come back!

  • We had an absolute blast at Kara Creek Ranch and couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Everyone was great – both staff and guests. It’s the perfect place to really see what ranch life is like. We loved it and will be back for longer next time so be warned! Thank you all for the big laughs, friendly banter, beer and memories. See you again!! Helen, Linda and Carol x

  • My four visits here in the past two years have each been amazing in their own way. Wonderful people who welcome you to the Kara Creek family with open arms, great home cooked food, lovely horses to ride and the most amazing views everywhere you turn. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough to anyone looking for a TRUE cowboy experience and not some touristy dude ranch.
