QUINCY, Calif., Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A California classic adventure destination will be under construction this Fall to upgrade its all-inclusive dude ranch experience for visitors. New owners, Greenhorn Partners, announced their plans to create California's premier family adventure experience.

"This place is magical. There's something about the air up here, the way of life. It just changes your whole perspective. It's a major attitude adjustment," said Partner David James. "The property is a little outdated and could use some upgrades but everyone who comes here can see what this place could be."

Greenhorn Ranch, a working dude ranch on a 600+-acre plot of forest land in rural Plumas County, just outside of Quincy, California was founded in 1962. The family vacation site has grown over time under several different owners. The property features thousands of miles of trail, 28 guest rooms, a saloon, three fully stocked fishing ponds, a pool, a communal dining area and kitchen with full service, a rodeo arena and 80+ trail-worthy horses, a wedding ceremony site, outdoor grill and fire pit, and much more.

Some updates have already been made to guest rooms and resort amenities, including a fully remodeled lodge, improved menu items, new beds and linens and a redesign of the reception area. Additional experiences are being added to the adventure itinerary list, including mountain biking, archery, off-road vehicle tours, fly fishing getaways, and upgraded group packages for weddings, corporate retreats and other exclusive buyout opportunities. Additional updates will include updated rooms, an Airstream™ village, and more.

Reservations are available for the 2018 season. For more information, visit
