Guest Capacity


The Rich Ranch is located in Western Montana, adjacent to the spectacular Bob Marshall Wilderness and two hours from Glacier National Park. Our lodge and cabins are nestled in the trees overlooking a tranquil meadow with an awesome view of the Rocky Mountains looking across the ranch meadows. Three generations of the Rich Family live/work on the ranch and have been part of the valley since 1958. You will enjoy daily horseback riding (for all levels), fishing, mountain biking, hiking, ghost town tour, roping, lake swimming, campfires, and more. You can also include a wilderness pack trip and rafting options to your vacation. Our guests say, “I have to say again that our trip to the Rich Ranch was literally the best vacation I have ever been on! I have been to Europe, most of the Caribbean Islands, Hawaii and about 30 US States and I was more relaxed and more comfortable at your ranch than any of those places!! Everyone was fantastic. I think I smiled the entire trip.”

There are plenty of things to fill your week at the Rich Ranch!!! Horseback riding is the main activity for you to enjoy. We will fit you to a saddle and match you with a horse suited to your riding ability and comfort level. Many guests also enjoy blue ribbon fly fishing for native cutthroat trout. Wildlife viewing, nature hikes, car tours, and swimming are also popular activities. A week at an authentic Montana Dude Ranch will change your life!
