Welcome to Horse Creek Adventures!
Horse Creek Adventures is a 170 acre ranch that provides an opportunity for visitors to stay one night or several days to enjoy the land and area sights. You have your choice as to how you want to stay. Our “off the grid” cabins offer a special opportunity to camp with a roof. They are extremely popular! Check out the information about them and then check the photos posted by quests and read their reviews to give you lots of ideas of how you could enjoy these one of a kind sites. Tenting is available all over the 170 acres. You can tent by the pond; on top of the hill, or in a valley. These sites allow you to “get away from it all” and let the stress melt away. We have tenting sites close to a road to give you the flexibility to see local attractions while enjoying the whole 170 acres. Lastly, we have RV hook-ups with 119, 30 amps and 50 amps
The land is part of the famous Loess Hills. There are hilltops to take in the breath taking views and valleys surrounded by trees. A pond full of trophy-sized bass , catch and release, no license required. Wildlife abounds including a wide variety of birds
The area is rich with history-Lewis and Clark; French Canadian trappers and their Lakota wives established French Villages; Mormons came through here on the way to Utah; Jesse James played cards.
Waubonsie State Park is close with hiking trails and seven miles of Horse trails.
At night you can use a portable corral to have your horse close.
End the day around a campfire, look at the stars and the lightening bugs and be serenaded to sleep by the coyotes.
Stay at Horse Creek
Stay in one of our off the grid cabins that are on above the ground 20′ x 20′ decks. The cabins are at the top of Loess Hills bluffs, placed to provide great views. They have been spaced to give you a lot of privacy. Get ready for spectacular vistas and the ability to get away from it all.
It begins with leaving you car down below. You can hike or ride your horse to the cabin. We bring up your gear in a gator. The cabins easily hold queen size air mattresses. We also have cots you can use. Each cabin has a spindle picnic table with chairs; fire ring and some basic cooking items. You bring the rest of the gear you would bring for a camping trip. We provide a 7 gal container full of water and a porta-potty toilet for your use.
Once you are set up there are trails to walk or ride with your horses, or just sit on the deck enjoy the beautiful view and read a book. After a short hike, you can catch fish from the pond. It is catch and release, you bring your own pole, no fishing license is required. Depending on the season there are blackberries to pick and eat.
At night get ready for the sounds of coyotes and other creatures sharing the space with you. There are just a few of the options you can enjoy while staying at Horse Creek Adventures. We are less than an hour from Omaha and Lincoln Nebraska. St. Joseph and Kansas City, Missouri are about an hour and a half.
Horse Back Riders: We are pleased to announce that we now offer a special opportunity for children to take a short ride in our arena or a two hour guided trail ride beginning with an introduction to trail riding. Contact us for more details.
Dog owners: We are pet friendly at Horse Creek Adventures but it does require that dog owners work with us. At any given time there are horses and dogs sharing the same space. Tell us up front that you are bringing a dog and tell us about its size and breed. Our rule of thumb is small dogs are welcome. Large dogs are on a case by case basis. This is especially important for dogs that are trained to protect their owners. When dogs are here they must be kept on a leash.
Our Facebook page Horse Creek Adventures has lots of pictures and comments from our guests.
Country Diamond Inn is our seven bedroom country home on the ranch. Book a room for you and use our amenities for your horse. To book go to Country Diamond Inn on this website.
