Specializing in Family Vacations

The CM Ranch is a dude ranch with a fine reputation and specializes in family vacations. The CM offers a variety of outdoor adventures, including horseback riding, fishing, hiking, pack trips, weekly rodeo, cookouts, and more.

Expansive Ranch Lands

The expansive ranch lands are contiguous with the Shoshone National Forest and Fitzpatrick Wilderness, which allow for almost endless private riding and fishing in country of great variety and beauty. The CM is a family friendly environment with a welcoming atmosphere and a unique charm.

Abundance of Activities

During the day you can ride, fish, hike, swim, picnic, participate in activities, or relax with your book, as you please. Evenings can be spent with others at square dances or cookouts, playing softball, horseshoes or volleyball on the lawn, or ping pong and card games. Each week there is a slide show by a local photographer, and an evening of cowboy poetry and music. Perhaps you would like to join friends on a cabin porch for conversation and star-gazing. And there is always the quiet seclusion of your cabin to enjoy.

Friendly and Casual

The CM is friendly and casual. The size is ideal, as there are always several age groups, assuring congenial companionship for all. It is a relaxing place to bring your family or friends, and spend time with them in simple outdoor activities. The employees are seasoned ranch hands and college students from all over the United States, and they are encouraged to participate in all aspects of ranch life. Everyone is welcome at the CM; families, groups, reunions, couples, and singles. All will get to know each other very easily and find themselves engaging in activities together.

It is not necessary to know how to ride before coming to the ranch. It takes but a short time to learn, and excellent instruction is provided as needed. Each person is furnished with a horse matched to his or her ability, and a comfortable western saddle. The CM has an exceptionally fine string of horses, both gentle and spirited, suitable for the beginner or the expert rider. They are well adapted to mountain terrain. Riding is available twice a day.
