Ranch Membership

Join the Dude Ranchers' Association!

An organization that the public, the media, and travel agents have come to know and respect as the leading authority of dude ranch vacations. Membership in the Dude Ranchers' Association identifies a ranch as meeting the highest standards of the dude ranch industry.   

The DRA represents over 90 members in 11 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 downloadable packet below:

Corporate Membership

Get involved in this growing industry!

The Dude Ranchers’ Association has over 150 corporate members! Today, individuals, Western enthusiasts, retail businesses, internet-based companies, insurance brokers, Eastern dude ranches, and many others are among the many supporters of the Dude Ranchers’ Association. All of our members are appreciated and recognized as a vital part of this great association. 

As a corporate member, you will have the opportunity to be involved in this growing industry, interact with member ranches, sell products, and stay informed to new industry trends and issues. If you are an Eastern ranch unable to meet the requirements of full membership, a corporate membership will allow us to recommend your ranch to guests unable to travel West of the Mississippi. Memberships are processed through the Dude Ranch Foundation and are tax-deductible. See below how becoming a member would benefit you.
