Wrangle Up Some Family Fun

Ready to explore the great outdoors without having to rough it? At our Villages Resort, you can grill up some meat and taters on one of our charcoal barbecues, set out on the open range from our horse stables, or set afloat on Lake Palestine from our marina. Best “uncamping” camping trip ever!


Ready for an adventure of the four-legged kind? Head over to our stables and saddle up! You’ll travel on horseback along a trail that’s hugged by pine trees, oaks, and dogwoods and along the edges of beautiful Lake Palestine. That view of the blue waters merging with rolling green hills may look like a painting, but it’s the real deal, so take it all in. Life doesn’t get much better than this!

Hours: 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Location: Stables

Cost: $40 per person

*Reservations required. Must be at least 8 years old and 48" tall. Weather permitting and closed toe shoes required.

Mini Golf

Hear that? It’s the call of the wild, and it’s got your name on it, so head on over to our “backwoods” mini golf course and make some fun mini golf memories with the whole family. With its split-rail fences, cute wooden cottages, trickling creeks, and canyon waterfalls, you’ll feel like you wandered into an old timey woodlands hideaway. Just don’t lose sight of why you’re there... to sink those putts, of course!

Hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily
