About High Lonesome Ranch

A national park-sized ranch with a healthy respect for the past and an eye towards the future. Brave and hardy pioneers settled here over a hundred years ago. Today at The High Lonesome Ranch, we diligently continue their ranching heritage as a working cattle ranch using best practices, by reinvesting a large portion of our revenues and using the latest conservation and habitat restoration practices to enhance the land and waters.

The High Lonesome Ranch is where you can escape the trapping of everyday life and find your inner cowboy. While you're here you will find 400+ secluded square miles where you can reconnect with your family, your friends, your colleagues and, most importantly, yourself. On horseback, on bike, or on foot. Fish, hunt, ride and climb. By day, you'll be tested and thrilled. By night, you'll be pleasantly wined and dined. You won't just look at the stars; you'll be treated like one.

Our week-long Dude Ranch experiences cater to all levels of riders. Programs begin on Sundays and conclude on Saturdays, often with families' being newly bonded to one another, their wranglers and their horses. We offer riding lessons, cattle drives, round ups, roping, team penning, reining, a western obstacle course, an introduction to barrel racing, wild horse tours with picnics, and wagon trains. If you've never mounted a horse, this is the perfect place to learn to ride. Our patient instructors can turn you into a cowboy in a short time.

We've got more trails for you to ride than you could cover in a lifetime. Whether you ford streams or ride through the cottonwoods you will become part of The High Lonesome Ranch legacy. We offer miles of trails that range from an hour to a day.

Whether it is your first ride or your 50th year in the saddle we guarantee that you'll have a great time. Before you leave The High Lonesome Ranch, we will do our best to make you say, "I wanna be a cowboy."

The High Lonesome Ranch offers a unique blend of sporting and outdoor activities. Many guests come to the ranch to experience fly-fishing, wing shooting, HLR Expeditions, or big game hunting. Our guests enjoy our outstanding hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, birding, and wilderness adventure tours.

Our Executive Chef will dazzle your palate with local farm-to-table fare at every opportunity.
