About the Dude Ranchers’ Association

The Dude Ranchers' Association was formed in 1926 to preserve this special way of life and the wonderful environment in which dude ranching takes place. When you vacation at a Dude Ranchers' Association member ranch, you can be sure of a quality vacation. Membership is a rigorous inspection and approval process that ensures guests are treated to genuine western hospitality combined with the lodging industry’s highest standards.

Dude ranches offer all-inclusive vacations that are perfect for solo travelers, multi-generational families and corporate events. Horseback riding, hiking, fishing, swimming, cycling, zip lining, white water rafting, rodeos, campfire sing-a-longs, western dancing, fine dining and more await your discovery on your next dude ranch vacation.
