Frankly, for a long time, the experience of visiting Spinnerfall Lodge and Circle 7 Ranch far exceeded the experience of visiting our website.

And while that’s still true — it’s very possible you’d rather be here than where you are now — that gap has narrowed ever so slightly.

So when you need a dose of the beauty, the peace, the quiet, the big trout, the golf course, the wonderful food — all those things and more — visit our website, which will make it easier to visit us here.

Headed out for the day…..

The Circle 7 Ranch (and it sister property, Spinner Fall Lodge) are committed to the health of the Fall River. We recently partnered with The Fall River Conservancy to restore and improve the Fall River along our Circle 7 property.

The Fall River Conservancy blog honors our committment to the Fall River

This from the Fall River Conservancy blog:

This fall, FRC and the Circle 7 Guest Ranch formed a partnership to begin restoring the stream bank along their 3.5 acres of the river front property.

FRC used grant funding to match a generous contribution from owner-operator Dan Smith. With the combined funding, Smith constructed over one mile of fencing that will help keep cattle from destroying the stream bank.

“It’s the right thing to do,” says Dan Smith, “the Smith family believes in contributing to the welfare of the river and we’re glad to work with FRC on protecting important habitat.”

The Circle 7 Ranch is approximately 700 acres and has been a working ranch for over 40 years. This successful partnership between Circle 7 and FRC demonstrates how simple it can be to protect the river while also maintaining a working cattle ranch.

The Fall River remains one of Northern California’s crown jewels, and Spinner Fall Lodge and Circle 7 Ranch remain committed to protecting and improving this one-of-a-kind resource.
