Live Out Your Yellowstone Dreams – Take a Dude Ranch Vacation

Dreaming of living a life like Rip Wheeler, or Kayce, John, and Beth Dutton in the popular tv show Yellowstone, even if only for a short while? What if we told you, we have the answer… take a dude ranch vacation! While dude ranches don’t have “train stations”, they do have many of the romantic features highlighted in this series about the western way of life, wide-open spaces, and the cowboy lifestyle.

Since the rise in popularity of the show Yellowstone (featuring Kevin Costner) this fan-favorite and drama-filled tv show has brought new attention to the cowboy way of life, and we’re here to provide an authentic cowboy experience to Yellowstone lovers!

Anyone is welcome to take a dude ranch vacation where you will ride the trails, work some cattle, fly fish in pristine rivers, and dress the part. Spend time riding, eating, and enjoying the ranch with your wranglers and truly learn what it means to be a cowboy. By choosing one of the 90+ Dude Ranchers’ Association member ranches for your dude ranch vacation, you are ensuring your trip will include beautiful views, stellar horseback riding, delicious food, and comfortable lodging options.

While all of our 90+ member ranches will provide an incredible western experience, these rough and tumble working cattle ranches will have you feeling like you’re living out an episode of Yellowstone – working cows and riding alongside Rip, Kayce, and John Dutton. So, grab your cowboy hat, Durango boots, and a pair of Kimes Ranch Jeans and meet us out on the range!
