Sometimes you find Yourself in the middle of Nowhere.. and sometimes in the Middle of Nowhere, you find yourself. This is the Place.

Located 17 miles from the East Gates of Yellowstone, you’ll find the Historic UXU Ranch. Bordering the south bank of the blue-ribbon trout fishing Shoshone River, the “U” is an all-inclusive dude ranch, that combines historic log cabins, 3 hearty meals a day, your own assigned horse/trail riding, family activities, hiking, and of course the Yellowstone! Although the ranch can accommodate up to 45, we try to limit the weekly program to 20 guests. Join us for a 5-night journey in the traditional western lifestyle, the ranch life, and all it encompasses, at the UXU Ranch.
PS Get ready for some incredible scenery!

Starting the 1st afternoon after you’ve settled in, we match and introduce you to your horse for your stay. With almost the whole Shoshone National Forest to ride in, our certified wranglers will guide you thru wilderness, mountains & meadows, streams, at a pace that is comfortable and designed for your riding ability. Most of our trail rides are at a walk.
During your stay you can also enjoy in a night at the Cody Rodeo, White Water Rafting, a trip to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West Museum, Live theater, Blue Ribbon Trout Fishing, Equestrian Games, and more! You can also just relax on our main deck or yours and take in the incredible views right on the ranch. Hike along the Shoshone River.
