The Dude Ranchers’ Association is an organization that the public, the media, and travel agents have come to know and respect as the leading authority of dude ranch vacations for almost 100 years. Membership in the Dude Ranchers’ Association identifies a ranch as meeting the highest standards of the dude ranch industry.

Full DRA Ranch Membership

The DRA represents over 90 members in 10 Western States and 1 Canadian Province. Membership in the association is not automatic. Dude ranches applying for membership go through a two-year inspection and approval process. When guests vacation at a Dude Ranchers’ Association dude ranch, they can be assured of genuine, western hospitality combined with the lodging industry’s highest standards.

Most questions about membership criteria and the application process are answered in the Ranch Membership Information PDF.

For more information about membership call 307-587-2339.
