About Elkhorn Ranch

One of the last traditional ranches with a crew focused on providing memorable outdoor activities each day

Montana guest ranches for family

Bring the family!

Our Montana Dude Ranch is designed from the ground up to cater to families that want closely shared family time without needing to spend every moment together.

Daily outdoor activities at our family-oriented guest ranch will let you make new friends, bond with old friends, and help you reconnect with your family.

You'll be amazed to watch your children and teenagers spread their wings, gain confidence and independence, and even self-wean from electronics.

Our children's programs help them build experience and forge new friendships.

About 40 guests per week arrive and depart on Sundays throughout the summer.

We strongly encourage guests to stay for a minimum of one week or more to get the most from your dude ranch experience

In addition to a variety of full or half days on horseback for riders of all abilities, blue ribbon fishing streams, whitewater rafting, hiking and the wonders of Yellowstone Park are at our gate.

We are an authorized concessionaire for Yellowstone National Park.  

A Unique History


Elkhorn Ranch is part of the National Register of Historic Places.

Since 1922, this purpose-built Montana dude ranch has put smiles on family's faces as they get better acquainted with the West and a slower, more friendly way of life.
