Different Activities to do on the Dude Ranch
If you ever find yourself in Northern Wyoming, looking for something fun and entertaining to do, be sure to check out Dude Ranch. Dude Ranch, also known as Eaton’s Ranch, is located in Wolf Wyoming, just south of the Montana and Wyoming state line. This lovely vacation destination has tons of things to keep you and your family busy for days. Here are just some of the different activities you will find on the ranch.
You simply cannot visit a ranch without hopping atop horses for a nice, scenic ride around the property. Dude Ranch is home to 220 horses! You can choose to explore and ride alone throughout the 7,000 acres of land on the ranch, or take a guided horseback ride with one of the ranch’s Wranglers. You can even take an all day ride into the nearby Bighorn National Forest!
Not feeling adventurous today? No worries! The ranch has their very own 40’x70’ swimming pool to lounge next to, or create some splashes. If you are looking for something a little more relaxing, be sure settle into the hot tub for a while and relax to the sound of the bubbling water.
Are you a fan of shooting firearms, as well as bows? Gather up to 7 other people for a great time shooting targets. These outings are included with your stay at Eaton’s Ranch.
Take your mountain bike (or a rental from Back Country Bikes) out on any of the scenic trails when the horses are not out and about. There are trails for leisurely riders, as well as more difficult trails for the more experienced bicyclists.
There are a handful of places you can toss out a line and catch a variety of bass from rainbows and brookies to brown and large-mouth. If you didn’t bring your own gear there are poles available on site, and flies and other tackle available for purchase in the Wolf Creek Fly Shop.
Pilates and Massage
If you are looking for a great way to relieve some stress, join one of the Pilates classes that are offered every Tuesday and Thursday. You can also find relaxation with a nice massage from a local massage therapist, that comes to the ranch twice a week!
Gather your friends for a quick softball or volleyball game or head to the recreation building (Howard Hall) for all sorts of fun from ping pong, and games to bingo and dancing. Also be sure to take advantage of the barbecue pits and horseshoes.
As you can see, there is a lot to do and see on the Dude Ranch. Make sure you take the time to visit everything!
