Joy Ranch of South Dakota
For those with disabilities or challenging life circumstances, we are a place to enjoy nature and participate in Equine experiences and other activities. All in a barrier free and stairway free environment that everyone can access. For the general public, we are a place to horseback ride, jump in a lake, take a riding lesson, visit an 1880’s town, get married, stay in a themed hotel room, hold your next corporate event, camp out, eat something delicious, and much more. Lodging options include 16 western-themed hotel rooms, a Bunkhouse with room for 72, and the Coyote Campground with 11 camp sites (with water and electricity). Located approximately eight miles northwest of Watertown on SD Highway 20, Joy Ranch is situated on a quiet lake nestled into the rolling prairie hills.
