We encourage our guests to join in the round-ups and discover the skills it takes to be a cattleman. Crystal Waters Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive vacation, so relax and let us do the cooking.

Breakfast and dinner are set out buffet style in our licensed 40 seat dining room over looking Crystal Lake. Lunches are individually packed for you to take on whatever excursion you choose that day and bbq's are planned regularly on our water front gazebo and licensed patio (weather permitting). We raise our own livestock and serve only organic meat. 'The Cowboy Way' gift shop offers local artistry as well as a good supply of western hats and attire.
