Returning Guests

Welcome home ... For those of you that haven’t been here before, we do mean home. We love the fact we have so many return guests that feel the ranch is like a home away from home and we are part of their family. For this reason we have added some special activities just for our return family.

Certified Dudes, cowboys & honorary wranglers get ready to:

Opening Week:

Join the staff as we get geared up for the season clearing trails, setting up summer camp, grooming, vetting and riding out the horses.

Cattle Drive Weeks:

Grab a radio, take your position and show off your cow pushin’ skills. Of course you’ll be the one with the most stories around the campfire too.

Overnight Trail Rides:

See new parts of our trail system by joining us on an overnight trail ride. We are able to get more than twice as far into the mountains by ending the ride at a mountain campsite.

All Other Weeks:

Assist the Wranglers catching and saddling horses. Help other guests during instruction and on the trail. Join the wranglers planning rides or as they explore new trails. Get a radio, and help lead a group on a ride.

Other Possibilities:

For those of you not wanting to wrangle there’s always other ways to broaden your horizons. How about heading up a Poker or Craps game or perhaps sharing a recipe with Jane to try out on the rest of the bunch. Then there’s always the Fort Laramie and Kamp Kootenai kids programs where you can share your knowledge and teaching skills with the children.
