Enjoy a taste of the authentic American West where horses, hats, history, heart and hospitality abound. With over 100 carefully chosen member ranches, we know there is a ranch that will fit you and your family perfectly – all while protecting lands, parks, forests and wildlife.
Our Dude, Resort and Working Ranches are in the most picturesque regions of the USA and Canada near historic sites and national parks for a photographer’s heyday! Each has its own unique history, incredible horseback riding tailored to the rider’s age and ability, and exciting outdoor adventures like whitewater rafting, paradise fishing on scenic rivers, fun hay rides, hikes, golfing, and more. Blue skies, starry nights and the sounds of silence are also included in your dude ranch vacation. Lounge in a hammock until the dinner bell rings and then breathe pure clean air as you rediscover the brightest shining stars peeking out from Heaven.
Want to gaze into a crackling fire instead of a computer screen? Then, it’s time you discovered the majestic beauty of the land and get reacquainted with your family and friends. Join us any time of year for genuine western hospitality. Prices, programs and activities vary. We guarantee the lodging industry’s highest standards, whether you’re staying in a rustic cabin or high-end ranch resort. Whether you’re anxious to get back on a horse, or want to slip your foot into a stirrup for the first time, a dude ranch vacation surrounds you with landscapes so magnificent in their beauty that we protect many of them as national parks. Once you’ve had a taste of a dude ranch, you may never want vacation anywhere else again.
