The 2022 season begins May 1 with the fresh invigorating Cariboo Spring. The ice is off the lake and the grass is turning green. This is the ideal time for people who prefer a quiet ranch with the trails to themselves. The pastures and trails are lush and green and the birds and wildlife are active.

Spring Wrangler Week

May 1 - 6, 2022

How would you like to be a wrangler for a week? This year the Ranch will be open May 1, 2022 to May 6, 2022 for guests who would like to join us in our annual Spring work party. Its all about fixing fences, opening trails, piling firewood,  cleaning up the tack room, and sprucing up the grounds. There's fellowship, great meals, nightly camp fires  and lots of chances to ride. Dogs welcome if they want to help. Cost is just $190.00 per day and that includes food, lodging and a horse assigned to you for the stay. In return all you do is help out. 

Opening Weekend

May 6 - 8, 2022

It all starts this weekend! Why not drop everything and pop up to the ranch this weekend.  Meet our new and expanded herd of riding horses. Meet our new staff and enjoy a restful sleep on our comfortable mattresses.

May Long Weekend

May 20 - 23, 2022

Our first long weekend of the year is when things pick up and the ranch starts to fill up with families and friends. It's a weekend of riding in great May weather followed up by extra activities and surprises in the evenings!

June 21 to September 22


The summers in BC's Cariboo region are sunny and warm which is ideal for both horseback riding and summer activities by the lake. This is our family period with children on school vacation. The lake is perfect for swimming and we also have tubing and boat rides every afternoon. This is ideal for guests who enjoy the hustle and bustle of a busy ranch with campfires, archery, canoeing, sing songs, karaoke and quiet evenings on the dock listening to the loons. 

BC Day Long Weekend

July 29 - August 1, 2022 

With some of the best weather of the season, join us for the BC Day Long weekend. Spend the morning on the trails and the afternoon on the lake tubing or water skiing. With only a couple cabins left for this weekend, make sure to call in and book your spot so you don't miss out on your BC Day vacay!

Yoga Weekend

August 19 - 22, 2022


We will be offering 2 yoga sessions a day during this weekend for the yoga enthusiasts. These sessions will be run by our instructo Paul. 

Labour Day Weekend

September 2 - 5, 2022


It's the last weekend before school and work starts back up. Remember, if you want to enjoy a long weekend at the ranch book your cabin early.


September 23 to October 10


Many guests choose the fall for the clear cool days of riding in the brilliant fall colours. The cabins are heated by wood stoves and are nice and warm in the evenings, perfect to curl up and read a book.

Thanksgiving Weekend

October 7 - 10, 2022


People love riding in the cool, crisp colours of fall at the Flying U. Let us serve you your favourite Thanksgiving meal, turkey and ham. Tasty vegetarian options are available as well. We will do all the cooking and cleaning, all you have to do is bring the family. 

Fall Wrangler Week

October 10 - 14, 2022


Getting ready for winter is a big task here at the ranch and this also allows for you, the guest, to have an extra opportunity to join us! This week will consist of stocking up on firewood, putting in new and fixing up existing fencing for our winter pastures and of course general clean up. The cost for the week is $190 per person per night which includes your 3 meals per day, accommodation, use of all facilities and your afternoon of riding.
