A trip to The Rock Ranch

I have lived in Georgia for 6 years now and have never even heard of The Rock Ranch. Two weekends ago, we, and our good friends the Kelly's, ventured about an hour outside of our little town and took in all they had to offer.

The Rock Ranch is a gorgeous 1,250 acre cattle ranch located about an hour south of Atlanta in Upson County. It’s a place where families, school groups and even businesses can come to enjoy all the fun. The Rock Ranch is owned by Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy and dedicated to “Growing Healthy Families”!

We had so much fun letting Addison and her best bud Campbell just run free. We also enjoyed train rides, rock throwing, pumpkin launching, pumpkin picking, cow train rides, Tiny Town and a picnic lunch. They also offer zip lines, jumping pillows, cane fishing, paddle boats, and horse rides.

If you have children and live anywhere near here...it's well worth the drive. It is so awesome what all they have done just so families can come enjoy a day out in the beautiful weather. It costs $14 to get in and then all activities are free once your in, except the zipline. And of course food costs, but we brought our own picnic lunch and just went back out to the car and spread a blanket and ate then went back in.

Addison and Campbell had an absolute blast. I will let the pictures tell the story.

Wow! I don't know if you'll remember me, I used to blog as Kitty Cat - then I fell pregnant, and tried blogging a little while under a new blog...but haven't really had the time to blog for ages. I remember we were very close in pregnancies back then - anyway, I've found your blog again and I'm so thrilled to see your little one! She's gorgeous! My little boy just turned two the other day as well! Congrats. I'm going to try my hand at another blog again - time dependent, of course. Much love.
