Trail Rides and Horseback Riding
at Watch Lake Lodge and Guest Ranch

Horseback riding is available on the May long weekend, from mid June to Labour Day weekend, and on Thanksgiving weekend. Large groups may enquire about other dates between May 15th & Thanksgiving weekend.

The most popular attraction at Watch Lake Lodge and Guest Ranch is the horses and the most popular activity is the trail riding! You do not have to be a camp guest to take part in the trail rides, as we offer rides to the public on a first come first serve basis.

Trail Riding

Watch Lake Lodge offers two well supervised rides daily, at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm except Sunday's. On Thursday at 6:00 pm they have an Adult Ride for camp guests only. On Saturday there is a picnic lunch ride, where riders and non-riders meet by the lake and have lunch together.

Up to 25 riders at one time can be accommodated and they can be as young as 7 years old. Three or four experienced wranglers are on each ride. Everyone from beginners to advanced are welcome, "We can handle you all".

Every day there are different trail rides supervised by experienced wranglers who pick out a horse suitable to your experience and ability. Trail rides are approximately 2 hours long, with a short "stretch time" at the halfway point. Quite often you will see cattle, wildlife and waterfowl. Inexperience need not be a deterrent, as the wranglers will teach you the simple rules for handling horses and how to ride. Everyone gets our individual attention before the ride starts off so that we are all comfortable & have been able to express any concerns. Our rides are "Fun for the whole family"!

There are riding boots "on the house" for those who wish to use them. You do not have to be a camp guest to join in on a ride but a reservation is required.

Wednesday is "Cowpoke Day" when a small number of riders (4) can join Dimps checking and/or moving the cow herd. Lunch is supplied and this ride is an all day ride (10:00am to 5:00pm) - which will likely include a Cattle Drive! This ride is for Watch Lake Lodge Guests only, and riders must be experienced and meet Dimps' approval.
