I found this family dude ranch 4 years ago & we have returned each year since it's discovery. It has a wonderful Christian flavor to it. All of my family, 10 yr old, 15 yr old, 17 yr old, 18 yr old, 44 yr old dad, 41 yr old mom, 66 yr old grandmother, and myself, 63 year old granddad,... More

This was our fourth family vacation at Deer Valley. Our grandkids keep asking to come back. This year only 12 of our family could make it. We all had a great time. The horseback riding was a favorite. Great white water raft trip.

What an amazing place for a vacation. My family of 6 spent 4 days there in June of 2014 for a family reunion. It is truly a spectacular destination and vacation location.

This was my second time to visit the ranch, and I enjoyed it just as much if not more than my first time! I wanted to bring family and friends up there to show them how beautiful and fun it is, but unfortunately they were not able to afford it - it is a bit pricey for single young adults,... More

Visited for the first time over the 4th of July. Family members have been going every summer for years and years, and that seemed to be a trend with many others we met during the week.

We had a great time at DVR over the 4th. Although we could only stay for a long weekend we hiked, swam, went to fireworks and parades, saw the "Western Party" show, and basically enjoyed the spectacular scenery. As always the staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Not often do you find a comfortable and safe place to stay. You can let your children out the front door of a modern but rustic cabin with no worries. Children's program was excellant. Food fantastic. Facilities top notch. Great vacation.

If you've ever wanted to fall away in time and relax while having just the right amount of things to do then this ranch is for you. More like an old-time resort that has horses than a dude ranch, DVR leaves your activity selection up to you. The Monday night square dance and Thursday night staff entertainment is excellent.
