|| Amenities at El Rancho Manana
There is so much more to do at El Rancho Manana besides camping! We offer horseback riding, trolley rides, wagonette rides, boat rentals, and walking/hiking/biking trails. Two times per summer, the first weekend in June and the 2nd weekend in August, we host the entertaining Minnesota Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Festival!!
We have a large, sandy beach with a nice swimming and playground area. Many fun activities take place at the beach like our Hawaiian Luau, South of the Border, Caribbean Adventures, and Cornfeed weekends! (weather permitting).
There are no lifeguards on the beach so swimming is at your own risk. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. The beach closes at dusk.
Please remember, no pets, glass bottles, or vehicles on the beach!
For your safety, ERM provides free life preservers with boat type rentals. All rentals must be supervised by an adult. All boats in at dusk. Contact office for rentals, 9am-8pm.
