Our History

In 1983 the Duininck Family purchased property, historically known as the Hart Ranch, just minutes from Mt Rushmore in the vacation destination of the Black Hills. To learn more about the Duininck family go to

In 1984 Hart Ranch Camping Resort Club was launched as a flagship Premier Outdoor Resort. The first of its kind, Hart Ranch epitomized the quality outdoor vacation resort of the future. With an emphasis on family-oriented activities, friendly Midwestern service and a quality built and maintained facility the Hart Ranch gained a nationally recognized reputation in the vacation industry. After building, operating and completing the membership sales program at Hart Ranch we were having too much fun to stop!

So in 2000 the staff and partners garnered their experience and resources and birthed the dream of a travel system of resorts in the Midwest. Midwest Outdoor Resorts offers the best vacation opportunities available combined into one membership to give travelers the best value for their vacation dollar. Member numbers have reached over 3,000 Member Families and Resort Facilities continue to be added.
