What We Are
Iron Horse Country Ranch is a good old-fashioned, real summer camp experience for your child. Our campers learn how to ride off-road motorcycles, known more commonly as “dirt bikes” – in part as a way to teach them an exciting skill they will keep for life, but mostly as a way to get them into the great outdoors doing something active and fun with other kids. The main way we do this is through our Summer Camp Program for kids ages 8-15 years. A secondary way is through Fall and Spring Ride Weekends, in small group lessons where parents have the option to learn along side their children and enjoy a unique bonding experience. We also offer individual lessons by request.
Where We Are
Our physical location is 9100 East FM 243, Bertram, Texas 78605. We are on a real ranch setting – 100 acres of beautifully rolling, wooded terrain nestled in the iconic Texas Hill Country and complete with cows, free-range chickens, a horse named Bella, ranch dog named Bandit and a barn cat named Oliver. We are 30 minutes from North Austin, 25 minutes from Georgetown, and 20 minutes or less from Cedar Park, Leander, Liberty Hill and Burnet, Texas. For GPS: “9100 E. FM 243, Bertram, Texas 78605”. (Note: DO NOT just enter our name as it takes people to an incorrect location near Liberty Hill.)
How We Do What We Do
We supply all the motorcycles and the gear. We use only Honda dirt bikes because they last and last. We provide transportation to camp with our air-conditioned bus to make it easier for parents to get their children to us. Our facility is a Resort for Kids complete with tracks, trails, fishing pond, pool, Cafe, Rec Center, air conditioning, Hockey and Ping Pong tables, animal life and, of course, riding…lots and lots of riding. All of that riding is done under supervision of our trained coaches. We teach in a professional, structured way that ensures success for every child. Our week -long Camps are organized to build on campers’ skills each day so that by the end of the week they are able to ride various difficulty levels, go over jumps and demonstrate their riding ability to their family on Show Day.
