Other Ranch Activities
If horseback riding isn’t your thing, or if you are a looking for something to keep you busy while you aren’t in the saddle, we have plenty of activities at our Jackson Hole guest ranch to keep you busy! We try to have a mixture of organized activities and less structured opportunities to ensure you have a great vacation.
Every day we will have several activities that you can choose to participate in. Some examples of the activities we offer are target shooting with .22 rifles, hatchet throwing, archery, horse games, team penning, and roping practice. We even offer the prospect of old-timey western photos. At night you can join in as we sit around the campfire, mountain man stories, listen to authentic western entertainment, or take part in our line dancing.
We also want to ensure that you are free to explore the astonishing area around our Jackson Hole guest ranch by giving you the opportunity to explore it for yourself. We have recently purchased new Polaris Rangers which will be available to take out at your leisure. There is no additional cost for the rental of the Rangers, and one will be waiting for you at your cabin upon arrival. Fuel is complementary.
With the Rangers you are free to explore the valley, set up shuttles for tubing the river, spend the day going from one fishing hole to another, or to take a canoe to nearby Soda Lake. We also have mountain bikes available for use all over the valley. If exploring sounds more like work, you can always relax by our heated pool and hot tub or read a book in a lounge chair by our stocked pond. As the day winds down there are magnificent sunset photo opportunities. When the sun finally sets you will get an unbelievable opportunity to stargaze with almost no light pollution.
Fly fishing is excellent in the area, with one of the largest fish populations in the country. The Gros Ventre River is home to the native cutthroat trout, this river runs through the meadows of our historic Goosewing Ranch. If you love to fish in a peaceful and remote location, Wyoming is the place for you.
For those who are interested in fly-fishing for the first time, or wish to improve knowledge and skills of the sport, we offer fly-fishing instruction by request on our stocked pond. We have equipment available for those guests who would like to participate in this activity.
If fishing away from the ranch, a fishing license is required and costs $14 per day (this permit can be purchased at the ranch).
