The 63 Ranch history dates from 1863 (hence the name), and in 1982 it was the first dude ranch in Montana declared a National Historic Site. This Livingston, Montana dude ranch sits at 5,600 feet elevation below Elephant Head Mountain, 50 miles north of Yellowstone National Park, 12 miles outside of Livingston. Making its home in some of the prettiest country in the west, the Ranch adjoins the two-million acre Gallatin National Forest, straddles Mission Creek Canyon, meets the craggy peaks of the Absaroka Mountains and the rolling across grassy hills, rimrock ridges and sagebrush benches above the Yellowstone River. The backdrop is breathtaking.
Wyoming’s premiere family guest ranch since 1958. The 7D Ranch has a smaller guest capacity than most, which allows for individual and personalized care. The ranch’s 10 rustic cabins are tucked into the scenic and remote Sunlight Basin, 50 miles northwest of Cody, in the heart of the Absaroka Mountains.
Surrounded by national forest and just a short drive from Yellowstone National Park, the 7D offers a setting of extraordinary beauty. Whether you are looking for a great guest ranch vacation, a pack trip into Wyoming wilderness, or a fall hunting trip, let friendly family and staff provide you and yours with an experience of a lifetime.
