Majestic Montana

Tucked just inside Montana’s majestic Rocky Mountain Front between Yellowstone and Glacier National Park, the Triple J Ranch overlooks the beautiful Sun River Canyon and Gibson Lake. The road ends here! Out our backdoor is the famous, million-acre Bob Marshall Wilderness.

Something for Everyone

The ranch offers something for everyone, singles, couples, or families. A wide variety of activities emphasize horseback riding, trout fishing and hiking on a smaller scale so we get to know you on a first name basis. Genuine, gracious western hospitality never goes out of style and in our fast-paced world, the memories, and relationships we make are the good things in life.

All Abilities & Experience Levels

Our quality horseback riding program is suited to all abilities and experience levels. Well-loved Quarter horses take you on a variety of rides from the high mountain country to the open prairie where you can ride abreast, or lope should you feel like it. We enjoy teaching horsemanship to increase knowledge, confidence, and comfort. High wrangler to guest ratio ensures flexibility and attention to detail.

Children’s Program

A fantastic children’s program allows parents a little freedom should they want it, or they can enjoy family rides & activities. Kids learn horsemanship skills, participate in arts and crafts, swim, hike, play games, fish. Boredom is not an issue.

Activities Beyond Horses

Fly-fishermen enjoy our spring-fed trout ponds or a day trip to the Sun River or Gibson Lake. Guided or on your own. Being beyond all roads allows for endless hiking opportunities with wildlife watching or non-technical mountain climbing. Maps and optional guides help interpret the area geology, wildflowers, and Indian history. Soak in the hot tub surrounded by mountain splendor after a fun-filled day. Evenings offer campfires with song, cowboy poetry, toasted marshmallows, and wild tale-telling. Try your hand at trap-shooting or archery. Learn how to swing a rope!

Delicious Meals

Delicious meals are always a highlight and feature fresh homemade goodies, fresh garden vegetables and locally grown meats. You may not take home our cook! Relax in your cozy cabin and enjoy endless stars in the clear night sky. Why settle for a hotel with a mere five?

Authentic Western Vacations

A lot has changed in the world, but not here. For over forty-five years, and now in the third generation, our family has provided authentic western vacations to folks from all over the world. Come as guests, leave as friends. Escape to a simpler way of life.

There are no musts, this is your vacation.

Ride to your heart’s content. Grab your fishing gear & hit the Sun River. Explore magnificent scenery with a long hike or interpretive boat ride. Wrangle in the horses or watch the wildlife. Relax on the deck or play cards in the lodge. Star in the guest rodeo or team penning. Kick up your heels to the music or reminisce about the day. Hear your children’s laughter from the contentment that the great outdoors bring.

Adventure or relaxation – it’s your choice!
