Family Fishing Derby Fun

If you’re looking for the perfect place to hold a fishing derby for a group of your closest friends, then White Buffalo Ranch is just the place for you.  The Ranch has two fully-stocked ponds right on their property, which means you won’t even have to travel off site for your fishing fun!

White Buffalo Ranch’s location makes it the perfect place for anglers of all skill levels from all over to gather.  Located on 800 pristine acres not far from Lebanon, Missouri, this upscale, private retreat is also a working cattle ranch.  You’ll be surrounded by nature at every turn!  The Ranch is just a short drive away from several metropolitan areas, including Kansas City, Springfield, and St. Louis, so fishermen and women flying in from elsewhere in the country won’t have too far of a drive from the airport.  The Ranch also has easy access to Interstate 44.

Once you arrive at White Buffalo Ranch, you’ll be delighted to find that you’ll have total privacy for the duration of your stay.  Groups rent out the entire ranch for their event, so you don’t have to worry about sharing the facility with other parties.  This assures that your friendly fishing fun will go off without a hitch!

The Ranch’s facilities are truly unmatched, with a spacious Main Lodge that comfortably sleeps 28 people in 10 bedrooms.  The Lodge supplies all the towels and bed linens you’ll need for your stay, so there’s no need to bring your own!  The Main Lodge’s bedrooms are divided into two wings, and linking the two hallways is the impressive common room.  This great room features a grand fireplace, a billiards table, a wet bar area, and plenty of seating, perfect for relaxing after a long day of fishing. The Main Lodge’s lower level has two bunkrooms and bathrooms as well as more space for groups to gather.  You can also watch a movie or play video games in the Lodge’s media room.

The Ranch also boasts a commercial kitchen where groups can bring their own food to cook together.  If you don’t want to have to worry about cooking meals during the fishing tournament, the staff at White Buffalo Ranch can recommend local catering companies that can meet your needs.  The group can take their meals together in the large dining room or outside on the spacious patio.  The patio features heaters and a beautiful stone fireplace to keep you warm on cooler nights.

Once the fishing derby is over, there are still plenty of fun things to do at White Buffalo Ranch.  The Ranch is a nature-lover’s dream, with miles of trails crisscrossing the property.  You can also visit with the ranch’s many animal residents and see what it’s like to stay at a working cattle ranch!  Groups can play games of croquet or bocce, and on warm days, you can take a dip in the Ranch’s in-ground swimming pool.

White Buffalo Ranch is a beautiful place to set up a fishing competition between friends.  The Ranch’s private location, upscale amenities, and friendly atmosphere made it the perfect place for a fishing weekend away.  Contact the ranch about setting up your fishing derby today.  For more information on how to organize a family fishing derby, click here.
