Summer Employment at Elkhorn Ranch, Montana

Just a mile outside of Yellowstone National Park and surrounded by the Gallatin National Forest and the Lee Metcalf Wilderness, the Elkhorn has been a dude ranch since 1922.

We are now in third-generation management, and in some cases, fourth-generation dudes. Continuity has created our tradition!

As you would guess, life here is oriented around the outdoors. Almost all of our guests, around forty a week, come to ride, although there are a few avid fishermen and some hikers.

The 24-person summer crew lives on the ranch and often get to take part in activities when schedules allow.

You'll come to love and enjoy working with guests – it's one of the things that everyone seems to enjoy most about the ranch.

Crew begins arriving in mid-May but all must arrive by June 9 and stay at least until the beginning of September.

If you apply, please be accurate on the dates you would like to come, and when you would have to leave.
