On a magnificent landscape that spans 4,500 acres, Griffin Valley Ranch soars over streams, stretches across valleys, and encapsulates mighty forests. This truly is a land of beauty. From the meandering river trails to the crests of the ridges, the scenery is sublime, the views breathtaking.
When the staff at Griffin Valley Ranch invites guests to drive out for a western experience, they really mean come out and saddle up a horse, take a wagon ride, or spend the night in the tee-pee, the long house, or a covered wagon. Owned by the Griffin family for more than 50 years, the folks here are as ‘country’ as it gets, and are welcoming as the trails, as friendly as the dog next door. At Griffin Valley Ranch, the motto is: ‘Come Make a Friend.’
