Their two children make up the rest of the human crew at the Bar C Ranch. The Catons are also very lucky to have many friends and family members who are willing to lend them a helping hand for which they are most grateful.
They offer a petting zoo, educational shows and camel rides. Stop by any night of the week-Tuesday through Saturday- and check them out!

First Bite Fishing Tanks:

Our attraction is fun for families and kids of all ages.

When people see our attraction it automatically triggers their curiosity.

Our attraction is a huge draw 3 different ways:

Depending on their ages, people either want to see the fish in the tank.
