Elk Ridge Ranch – there's nothing quite like it in Southern Indiana! Situated just nine miles from French Lick, this rural ranch takes advantage of Indiana's wide open space in the lush Hoosier National Forest. Here, relaxation doesn't just mean lazy days spent in the sun. As a 120-acre working elk ranch, Elk Ridge Ranch features tours, hayrides and some of Indiana's best elk hunting. Stroll through the vineyard, or putt around the pumpkin patch on the 9-hole Twin Peaks at Elk Ridge. Afterward, gobble down a Chuck Wagon dinner or a grilled T-bone elk steak and sleep tight in one of the ranch's family-sized lodges, cabins or houses – great for private parties!
