About El Rancho Manana Campground & Riding Stable

There is so much more to do at El Rancho Manana besides camping! We offer horseback riding, trolley rides, wagonette rides, 26 miles of walking/hiking/biking and horseback trails and much more!

The campground also borders Long Lake and offers two playgrounds and a designated swimming area. The large sandy beach also has a volleyball court set up, a boat launch, picnic tables, and row boat, canoe, and water bike rentals.

If you decide to bring your own boat for the weekend there are dock sights available for an additional charge. Please include a notice with the office when you register if you are bringing a boat along with the size. Dock slips do come at a first come- first serve basis. Boats & trailers are not allowed at the camp sight but are allowed to stay in our “off- site” storage area.

Bring your own horses for the day and enjoy 26 miles of trails on over 1200 acres of privately owned wilderness.  Horse camping offers electric, water, fire rings, pic-nick tables and shaded sights.

The trails are well groomed, and travel through the great MN forests and plains. There are water crossings, hills, and trails for beginner to advanced riders.

Two times per summer, the first weekend in June and the 2nd weekend in August, we host the entertaining Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Festival!! Along with the CommonGrounds Yoga Festival. We do host weddings as well. Call for inquires.
