 Our Location


The Giant Goose Ranch is one of the most unique family vacation destinations in the Midwest. It is a hybrid property somewhere between a campground, a sportsmans club, a vacation resort, a working ranch, and a private recreational farm. By combining all the best attributes of each type of property, along with the creativity and conservation of the Herman Brothers, we have the ultimate recipe for family fun, outdoor education and adventure. It will take a lifetime to explore everything the ranch has to offer!

The Giant Goose Ranch is currently 840 acres of land with over 275 acres of water. You and your family can enjoy exploring miles and miles of hiking and golf cart trails; relaxing at our 500’ swimming beach with sand volleyball courts; playing on our playgrounds with pavilion; feeding the chickens, horses, and ducks at the farm; picking sweet corn in the fields; fishing, kayaking, and canoeing on the water; stargazing and campfire making; and just plain having fun together outdoors.

On site we have a camping general store, bait shop, laundry, storage, and many other essential amenities to help your friends and family experience the great outdoors with ease! Along with all of the campfires to make, trails to hike, fish to catch, and swimming to do; we also have many family friendly activities planned each year! Some of the highlights each year are the July 4th Carnival with Fireworks, many Fish Fry's and Potluck Dinners, Church Services and Breakfasts, Fish Habitat Days, Family Crafts and Activities, Saturday Night Outdoor Movies, Volleyball Tournaments, Fishing Derbies, Charity Fundraisers and Educational Seminars.

There is always something new to experience or an adventure to be had! The Giant Goose Ranch is the perfect place to get away from modern civilization and get your entire family having fun together outdoors! The stars are bright and a campfire is the absolute best way to finish off the day!

Other important amenities (golfing and an airport) are not actually at the ranch, but rather right next door. On our southern border is an 18 hole golf course with driving range and 1 mile to the northeast is Ingersoll Airport. Below are some more useful links with additional details about the Ranch.
