Here at Pine Springs Ranch we strive to provide the best experience possible at an affordable rate. To ensure that all guests have this opportunity and can safely enjoy their retreat, there are some rules and regulations that we must enforce.  If at any point you have a question about our policies, please ask us and we will do our best to explain them. 


Basketball, volleyball, field sports, horseshoes, table tennis, foosball, corn hole, hiking, and board games are available. We also have additional activities listed on our Programming Options sheet. Some sports equipment is available at the Lodge front desk; however, you are encouraged to bring your own. Sports activities and equipment are not available from sundown Friday evening through sundown Saturday evening in accordance with Seventh-day Adventist worship beliefs.

Cabin guests must bring their own sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, towels, and toiletries. Bathrooms and showers are located in a nearby centralized village bathhouse.
