About the Ranch House

The main house at Rock Creek Ranch has a living room with large windows. The room is heated by a wood-burning stove and comfortably accommodates up to 10 – 12 people in a casual atmosphere. In addition, there is a smaller family room and a kitchen. The deck wrapping around the house can seat 60-75 people depending upon the table configuration. During the warmer months the deck surrounding the house serves as another dining and meeting area.

The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with one queen bed, one full bed, two twin beds and a bunk bed (2 twins). In addition there is one full-size futon located in the family room – futon users need to bring sleeping bags.

Rock Creek Ranch generates its own electricity using both solar and micro-hydro technologies. We discourage the use of hair dryers, laptops, blenders and coffee makers.  See more detail here: Accommodations Details

Entire Ranch

Rock Creek Ranch provides a place where visitors can withdraw from the busy world for inspiration and renewal.

Located on a sweeping bend of the Wild and Scenic Smith River, Rock Creek Ranch welcomes visitors to take advantage of the peaceful feeling and natural rhythms of the river to support group retreats, meetings and family reunions. During the rainy season, when the river is high, it moves downstream with a booming and boisterous energy—one can almost hear the boulders moving in the riverbed.  In summer, the river is an elegant emerald ribbon that gathers and slows to create two swimming holes, both jewels in the crown that of Rock Creek Ranch.

Rock Creek Ranch is operated by Smith River Alliance, a non-profit working to conserve  the Smith watershed. Since 2002, Rock Creek Ranch has hosted youth camps, conservation programs, retreats and community gatherings. Remnants of the original stone lodge stand beside a magnificent emerald pool, with its old foundation serving as an impromptu amphitheater and outdoor classroom. The facilities may be available to groups and private parties when not in use for SRA programs. See more detail here: Accommodations Details
