We stayed in the Cabin Ridge house in August 2021. The views, outdoor fire pit, kids play area, animals, and quiet privacy were fantastic. The eighties decor didn’t matter to us, but the old, smelly, disgusting carpeting throughout the house needs to be replaced with hard surface flooring. This is a diamond in the rough.

Not sure who wrote these great reviews for this place but we just got back and it was terrible! Never ever again and would not recommend to anyone! This place is not what it is made out to be at all we stayed in the old red barn with 6 people no more then that could have fit in there comfortably, no pots and pans to even cook with for 6 people biggest pan was a tiny little tea pan, no outdoor patio furniture to even enjoy, the lake had zero fish our boys fished for hours and didn't see anything but a minnow. There were roaches everywhere, we encountered a huge tranchula, had to pay to use the washing machine in our cabin, the list of horrible could go on forever. Only thing that was even slightly enjoyed was the creek. PAID OVER $550 FOR 2 NIGHTS! Way overpriced to now come home and let all of our stuff sit out for days to make sure we didn't bring home and bugs. Use caution staying here!

We had a wonderful two night stay with our four grandchildren (ages 6-10). The Old Red Barn is rustic but comfortable and clean. We enjoyed preparing our two dinners there. The kids loved the canoe and paddle boats on the pond. The scenery from the farm house is magnificent. But they most enjoyed the animals--watching, feeding, cuddling the kittens, the bunnies, Dolly Llama, the horse (a strange name. . .) the wonderful goats (my favorite). I apologize that I cannot remember if your name is Miss Jessica or Miss Julie???? My mind is old and feeble. Nevertheless, you were so kind to my grandchildren and they loved your animals and your ranch. I hope we can return soon.

This is a wonderful place for Christian families to escape to. I love the animals that roam about. It wasn't the best place for my rambunctious, atypical crew/family (we didn't realize it was a Christian based campground). The best part is that it is a Non-Profit Ranch!!

It's been a few weeks since we stayed in the Russ Noah Cabin, and I really can't wait to go back. It was one of my favorite weekends ever. It was just my husband and I on this trip, but it would be so much fun for kids of all ages. They've built fun mounds out of tires and hay bales to climb on, tire swings, trucks and diggers in gravel pits. Every board and yard game for older kids. Plus canoes and paddle boats to play on in the lake. Coops and pens with animals. Walking trails for every capability. The wildflowers were BURSTING when we were there in late June. I really can't recommend this place highly enough. It was amazing. For couples getting away, a girl's weekend, family weekend. Seriously. Just book it.

The facility was wonderful. Indoor plumbing and AC yet the feel of camping ... fire pit, BBQ grill ... no indoor cooking BUT coffee pot so....life was goooood! Bill the owner came by to introduce himself, let us know his cell if we needed anything, gave us AMAZING recommendations on the area and where to go that would fit our group which consisted of my husband, myself, and our 6 year old granddaughter. The place was clean and quiet and beautiful we felt like we were on our own. I would DEFINITELY recommend Crystal Creek Ranch....RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THE SITES to visit!

We do not even know where to begin! We stayed in the LAKESIDE CABIN. We walked to ALL of the other places to stay and thought each one was just as amazing and so unique! The Ranch has options for all family sizes and needs! And they give you the 4th night free in all of these options. When we arrived at the Ranch we ran into Betty who was very kind! When we got to the cabin we were stunned. It was so neat, so beautiful, and VERY CLEAN! The porch, gazebo, and the fire/sitting area were also impeccable! We took advantage of everything we could while we were there (a short two nights). We fed the animals (all sorts!), hiked the many beautiful trails on the property, ran through the corn maze a couple of times, visited the labyrinth, played board games (they provided), played in the creek, went out on the lake in the paddle boats, cooked all of our meals outside, toured the ranch, and drove to a few of the unforgettable and breathtaking springs!!! You could easily stay here a few days and not have to leave the ranch. Or if you do want to leave the ranch there is a lot to do decently near by! The ranch's location is great and very easy to get to! The prices are great. The showers and bathrooms are NOT like scary camping ground bathrooms! They are clean and decorated very well! I have stayed in a number of cabins around the country and the biggest fear is always HOW HORRIBLE WILL THE BED BE, I have chosen the floor over the bed in some places... NOT HERE :) The bed was surprisingly comfortable! I could go on and on. This place deserves nothing less than a 5 star rating. They will be receiving a Christmas donation from our family soon! And my husband and I have decided to make Crystal Creek Ranch an at least once a year thing! THANK YOU Betty and Bill, for sharing the beauty of this ranch with the public!

We enjoyed our cabin camping. The showers/bathroom are a short walk to Russ Noah cabin but quite a hike to the Lakeside cabin. There is plenty to do and see on the farm and in the area. Nearby Alley Spring and mill is a must see.

My family of 4 stayed two nights in the Red Barn. It had a full kitchen, two bedrooms, washer/dryer. It was up the hill away from the action so there was plenty of privacy. They had chickens, ducks, sheep, goats and a llama. We were able to help during feeding time. The boys had a blast! We paddled the boats and carts. We canoed. We played games (bags, ping pong, board games) in the main barn. We were also close enough to the creek to play and swim. (Bring good water shoes the rocks are tough on the feet) There was so much to do, we didn't have enough time to do it all. The staff was AWESOME! They were very kind and helpful! Thank you Julie for letting the boys help feed the animals. And thank you Bill for your tractor services!
