The Covered Wagon Ranch is a Montana Dude Ranch, nestled in the heart of the Gallatin National Forest, just three miles north of Yellowstone National Park.

We have fun here at the Covered Wagon Ranch. That is what we are all about. What is the point in a vacation if it’s not going to be fun? We don’t mind saying it ourselves. We are very cool. And our guests are cool dudes. If there were a Montana Cool Dude Ranchers Association, we’d be presidents.

Here at the Covered Wagon Ranch, you can experience Montana with a perfect western dude ranch vacation. If you like horses, then our rocky mountain horseback riding is probably just what you are looking for. We ride in the Gallatin National Forest, the Lee Metcalf Wilderness and Yellowstone National Park, with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world as our backdrop.

If you love to fish, world class fishing holes are just a (long) stones throw away. Stunning photograph opportunities are around every corner, every minute of the day.

Or if you just want to sit on your porch and read, take long walks, naps and practice some yoga, that’s fine too.

There is only one requirement if you want to come and stay with us. You have to be a cool dude.
