Wind River Wilderness Horse Ranch

Wind River Wilderness Horse Ranch
Wyoming USA

Remotely located in the Wind River Mountains, the ranch lies at the edge of the Popo Agie Wilderness area of the Shoshone National Forest, the world's first National Forest! At 9,200 feet above sea level, you will find sparkling mountain lakes, glaciers and pristine forests right outside your cabin porch. Rustic comfort, western hospitality and friendly staff make this place perfect for your summer vacation! Your stay in a cozy handcrafted log cabin includes family style meals in the lodge, daily horseback riding, wild trout fishing, natural history hikes and wildlife watching.
Children age 6 and older are welcome and encouraged to participate in all ranch activities with their parents. Overnight wilderness pack trips are also available as an upgrade. You may also explore the nearby Wind River Indian Reservation, historic gold mining towns, Yellowstone Park or go white water rafting. Friendly and informal, the ranch has only 4 guest cabins, assuring you a personalized and relaxing wilderness experience.

This ranch is the perfect place for a family vacation, a summer retreat or a mountain getaway. Since 1973, the Allen family has owned and operated the ranch with their staff of friendly wranglers. Jim's grandfather was also a dude rancher and outfitter here during the 1920's and 1930's. You can rely on the Allen's to provide a memorable wilderness vacation.

Since we are Wyoming's highest and most remote dude ranch, we are off the grid. We are proud of the rustic comfort we provide guests in each painstakingly handcrafted log cabin. The ranch is small, yet friendly with propane lights, sink and heater in each cozy cabin with showerhouse nearby. Daylight lasts until bedtime during the summer ranch vacation season. After dinner, we often enjoy conversation on the porch of the main lodge while viewing spectacular alpine sunsets over towering snowcapped peaks. The nightly horse stampede is also exciting as 70 horses thunder through the corral gate to graze unfenced mountain meadows.

Experience our unique wilderness hospitality and the mountain grandeur that can only be enjoyed far away from noisy highways and crowded civilization. What better way to spend time and create lasting memories with your family.
