Guest Capacity


A Working Cattle Ranch
Historic Klondike Ranch is located at the base of the Big Horn Mountains in north-central Wyoming. We are not only a guest ranch, with accommodations up to 10 guests at a time, but also a working cattle ranch, with livestock being a large part of our business. After our calving season, we trail the cows and calves up the mountain mid July and back home at the end of September. Throughout the summer our guests help us move the cattle by horseback from pasture to pasture. Guests are welcome to join us when it comes time to work cattle for vaccines and other care. We also offer fishing, hiking, sightseeing, historic tours of the surrounding areas, relaxing trail rides and a hot tub. The ranch is just 14 miles south of Buffalo, where there is a large, free swimming pool, an excellent golf course, weekly rodeos, a great downtown with gift shops and one of the most interesting historic museums in the country.

In addition to these activities, we have a campsite in the Big Horn National Forest, that serves as homebase while we work cows in the mountain. Many of our guests prefer these longer horseback riding days. The length of the stay at the campsite is negotiable and is based off guests and what needs to be done at camp, all included in our weekly rates. Due to the demands and style of our riding, we cannot accommodate the younger children, we only accommodate guests 14 years and older from July through September.

In June, we welcome families with younger children interested in sharing in the ranch experience with Family Weeks. Family weeks will be discounted by 10% per person for adults and 20% for ages 5-13. Children under five are still welcome for the experience at no cost. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Klondike Ranch offers trail rides, riding lessons, cattle drives, fishing, hiking, sightseeing, historic tours
and a hot tub. The ranch is just 14 miles south of Buffalo, where there is an excellent golf course, weekly
rodeos, gift shops, and one of the most interesting historic museums in the country.
We are often asked about our riding requirements and weight restrictions; you must be able to get on and
off your horse; using a mounting block is ok. Our guests need to be under 250 pounds and in fairly good
physical condition as we often ride and camp at elevations of around 9,000 feet. Klondike should not be
the last item on your bucket list.
