Quote and picture of Nathaniel (8 years old) who visited the Silver Cliffs Ranch to check out the facility with his father on June 19th, 2011.

Nathaniel " This place is awesome, there is a pool(hot springs fed pool) with a diving board, gym, games room, rope course and lots of other fun stuff to do. I also caught a 12" Rainbow Trout at Chalk Lake which is a 10 minute drive from the Silver Cliffs Ranch. You should come."
