Other Activities

All activities listed on this page vary in cost. See each activity for details on minimums and other information. 

Disc Golf:
Brand new as of 2012! Those staying in one of our facilities can enjoy testing their skills on our 9 hole disc golf course over the river and through the woods! Bring your own set of discs or contact the Office at 507-533-4315 for rentals. (A $20 deposit is required to rent Ironwood sets. Deposit will be returned if sets are brought back intact.) 

Tennis Courts:
We have newly painted and updated Tennis Courts. Bring your own racket and enjoy the tennis courts for no cost if staying at one of Ironwood's facilities.

Basketball Courts:
The basketball courts are found on the edge of the Tennis Courts and are a good activity for those staying at Ironwood's facilities. There is no cost to use the outdoor basketball courts.

Hiking/Snow Shoeing Trails:
We have miles of hiking and snowshoeing trails across the other side of the Root River for you to enjoy at no cost. A well marked 4K run around the Ranch property for those running enthusiasts or those wanting a beautiful stroll "over the river and through the woods"! Snow shoes are available to overnight guests.

Ice Skating:
New in 2015, we’re adding an ice skating rink to the Ranch! Call the Office at 507-533-4315 for rates and reservations.

Horseshoes/Lawn Games:
We have horseshoes available by the campground sites, and we also have lawn games (bean bag toss and bocce ball) for use. For availability please call the Office at 507-533-4315.

Broomball is available for use to our guests in the winter when the river has been frozen through enough. Please call the Office at 507-533-4315 for schedule availability.

Archery Range is available for groups to use at $5 per person for one hour (minimum of 10 people). Take your turn at shooting targets, balloons, or other objects in the range. Compound bows with bullet type arrows are used. This is an activity requiring staff so please reserve in advance. Call 507-533-4315 for availability.

Bouldering Wall:
For $5 per person you can use our bouldering wall that is indoors at our Rec Center building. No harness required because your feet only get 4-5 feet in the air. Instead of climbing up, you climb across. Safety mats are below on floor. Must have a minimum of 10 to open the Wall. Please contact the Office at 507-533-4315.

Scavenger Hunt:
A great way to see Ironwood is going on a scavenger hunt! Make up your own or Email Office for a prepared hunt. We also have a second scavenger hunt that is classified as advanced for those who know the ranch!

Tractor Wagon Ride:
Book a wagon ride for your vacation or family reunion or just a fun day activity. Our wagon can hold up to 20 people. A quaint 50 minute ride through the woods and along the Root River is a memorable experience. Call 507-533-4315 for availability.

$ 70 for rides during the day, Monday thru Saturday.
$ 85 for rides scheduled at or after 5 p.m. Or anytime Sunday.
