Panther Creek Trail Rides is under a slightly different name and new management as of March 12, 2011. We will work hard to continue the great hospitality you all have grown to expect. We will continue to provide a good clean quite environment for our guests and their families.

Here is a brief summary of who we are. Our names are Dave & Theresa Fleming we come from southeast, IA. We are horse people and enjoy almost all equine events. Our family consists of 2 sons, 2 daughters, 2 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.

We would like to thank all of the people that have welcomed us so far and we are eager to meet the rest of you in the upcoming months.

On this site you can find details on dates, rates, special events, reservations, and more.   We hope you get the impression that we provide a "down home, friendly atmosphere" where no one is a stranger and kids are welcomed.   We look forward to hearing from you and hope you decide to come see us in person!!


Our facilities were initiated in 1999;   our first full year of scheduled rides was 2000.   Our 4000 sq. ft. dining hall with its rustic decor will be a real comfort to you when you sit down to enjoy some of Theresa's homemade meal creations.   The stereo in the background will provide you with a selection of music to your liking.



Ever been to those places where you were a little afraid to use the shower house? Set your fears aside and bring your towels.   We know what's important!!   You will always find plenty of toilet paper and frequently smell the pine-sol.   There are no bathtubs or jacuzzis in this shower house, but you will get hot water, clean facilities, curtains that work, rubber mats, plenty of TP, and oh yeah, we leave the light on for ya.   Not bad for country folks.   A solid screen door to the entry puts a "whoa" on them bugs and various critters, not to mention adding some temperature control.


Each campsite has access to electric and their own water hydrant.   We have about 96 hook up locations with electric and water, so getting a "good" place to park should not be a problem.   We do recommend calling ahead to reserve your space, particularly for our scheduled rides.



For your four-legged buddies we have nice accomodations, all covered with lights and water near stalls.   The stall dividers go all the way to the top to prevent busy noses from reaching over.   The dividers are more like a heavy duty "screen" which provides ventilation, visibility, and security.   We now have 176 stalls.   As with camping areas, we suggest reserving stalls in advance, particularly if you'd like to be in a certain area.


We have over 100 miles of winding wooded trails, rocky ravines and natural prairie grass meadows which provide a variety of trail styles throughout our 4000 acres.   You can now preview the map and even print it if you wish.   We have added numerous new trails since we began in 1999.   You decide what challenge you are up for and we will provide direction.   There are trailmarkers that you should find very useful should you decide to ride without our guides.   If you prefer to let someone else make the plans, our guided rides generally head out around 9:00 a.m.   You can sleep in a little if you want, savor a homemade cinnamon roll (or other breakfast traditionals), coffee or milk, and still have time to join the ride.
