Washington ranch

Washington Ranch is owned and operated by CARC, INC. In 1986 CARC purchased Washington Ranch to provide expansion capabilities for CARC's primary mission of serving people with developmental disabilities. CARC has since built two groups homes on the property. These group homes support the mission and values of CARC. Any visitor to Washington Ranch must understand that they are guests in their home. 

Before being purchased by CARC, Washington Ranch had a colorful history of gun slingers, double-dealing cattle ranchers, and entrepreneurial business men. A tour of the grounds offers multiple opportunities to travel back in time for a taste of the wild west.

Today, this historic facility is available to the public and serves as a unique backdrop for weddings, conferences, traveling church groups, bird watchers, and many more. Facilities for rent include the main house with kitchen, conference center, atrium, and three motel rooms. Beyond the main house, facilities include two single-room cabins and a spacious bunk house. Large groups will enjoy our dining hall with commercial kitchen and four dorms capable of sleeping 20 people each. Washington Ranch has the facilities to provide accommodations for just over 100 people.
