Giddy Up! Escape to a Wyoming Dude or Guest Ranch

Even the staunchest city slicker has an inner cowboy buried deep inside of him. The benefits of getting in touch with that fella go way beyond bragging rights and photo ops. What you’ll discover on a dude or guest ranch in Wyoming is most likely a transformative experience that you’ll never forget — all amid incredible mountain and prairie scenery, beside new lifelong friends and with a smile that makes your face hurt.

For Families

Wyoming ranches are great escapes for families with children of any age. Parents can take advantage of stress-free trip planning, as many ranches offer meals, lodging and activities as packages. At many working ranches, guests can pitch in. Even on ranches designed for a carefree stay, horseback rides and songs around the campfire help create family memories.

For Couples

Couples looking for a romantic getaway won’t be disappointed. Many ranches offer unexpected luxuries, such as spa treatments and gourmet food-and-wine packages. A getaway to a guest ranch is the perfect excuse to unplug, soak up stunning scenery and ride off into the sunset together.

For Adventurers

Activities can fill every day of your stay at a dude or guest ranch. If you want to get your hands dirty, pitch in on the cattle operations. Hunting, fishing or wildlife viewing get you up close to the beautiful surroundings. Or get the blood pumping with snowmobiling, four-wheeling, whitewater rafting—or maybe even archery.
