CM Ranch

While most ranches are family-oriented, this one is more so than usual, with its kid-friendly dining, log houses (smaller cabins are also available) and supervised activities such as roping a "dummy" steer, beginner riding skills lessons and visits to ancient Indian petroglyphs and the local fish hatchery. It is one of the oldest dude ranches in the state and sits in a valley in the Wind River Mountain Range near Yellowstone National Park. Matched with horses suited to ability, guests can join a variety of daily rides with wranglers knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area. The property includes four miles of streams for excellent trout fishing and acres of Badlands wilderness dotted with sandstone mesas for scenic horseback trips. Down-home highlights range from square dancing lessons to evening cowboy poetry readings.
