Laughing Water Ranch
There's always a saddled horse waiting for you at the Laughing Water Ranch. Tucked away in Kootenai National Forest just west of Glacier National Park, this family-owned and -operated dude ranch offers something for every cowpoke. Leave the worries of the workaday world behind as you ride beneath the towering peaks of the Whitefish Range. Guided fishing is a must in this angler's paradise. Whitewater rafting? It's awfully popular on the nearby Flathead River. There are other ways to unwind, with golf and the hot tub's soothing waters. Though life on the ranch will more than satisfy a wide range of adult interests, the kids will love the teepees, "Fort Laramie," and the Kamp Kootenai children's program.

Lone Mountain Ranch
Lone Mountain Ranch is located in Big Sky, Montana, just south of Bozeman and north of Yellowstone National Park. With its own unique style of guest ranching, Lone Mountain Ranch offers a rich variety of professionally led outdoor activities focusing on the Discovery of Nature. Horseback rides are intentionally limited to a few riders, so you can learn about this spectacular part of southwest Montana from your knowledgeable wrangler. In addition to excellent riding, the ranch also offers naturalist and fly-fishing programs.

Rocking Z Ranch
Rocking Z Ranch is an authentic working ranch that is run by the Wirth family. Zack and Patty Wirth are fourth-generation Montanans, and have unparalleled knowledge of the area, its history, and their horses. The Rocking Z Ranch is surrounded by the splendor of the Rocky Mountains, the perfect setting for learning new riding skills as well as enjoying the relaxed Montana way of life.
