Old West Dinner Cookout
The Kingdom of Tall Tales
Call in at the Roosevelt Lodge and saddle up for an Old West Cookout unlike any you’ve experienced. The three-hour program begins with either a horseback or covered wagon ride to Yancy’s Hole, where cooks fire up hearty cowboy grub (juicy steaks, Roosevelt baked beans, corn bread, and more). Old timers regale the family with tall tales and flights of fancy, and then offer everyone an opportunity to join in on an Old West sing-along. If that’s not enough rootin’ tootin’ fun, you can climb aboard a historic stagecoach at the Roosevelt corral, and prime your pioneer spirit on a cowboy adventure.
