Unfortunately we do not have individual picnic tables at each site. We do have plenty of picnic tables in our picnic pavilion.
We do not allow individual fire rings at camp sites. We have a community fire pit that is located near the picnic pavilion that is available for public use. We also have electric, refrigerators and gas grills that can be used in the picnic pavilion. There is no running water in the pavilion.
BVR allows dogs as long as they are controlled and not running loose disturbing guests. If we receive complaints, you may be asked to tie your dog or keep them on a leash. We do not allow dogs in any of the buildings.
Horses are required to have a recent negative test result when visiting the ranch. States differ in their requirements for how recent a negative test result must be. In addition to a negative Coggins, the USDA requires that horses have a certificate of health signed by a licensed, accredited veterinarian in order to cross state lines.
While this is a relative question and can vary for individual, you may want to boot or shoe your horse as you may encounter rocks on some of the trails.
The terrain varies from dirt, clay, grass, sand and rocks.
