My 12-year-old granddaughter and I spent last week (June 26-July 3) at GVRR. We both had an amazing time. There is plenty to do for all ages and all interests. She rode twice a day (and loved the wranglers), took part in calf penning, and went tubing with her new best friends on the Gros Ventre River. I rode every...

Thank you for your review! We are delighted to know that you and your granddaughter enjoyed your time here on the ranch.

This dude ranch is outstanding in the opportunities it offers and the staff and guests feel like family in no time. We were a group of 23, the ranch hosts about 40 total. First class accommodations, food and fun!

Thank you for your review! Our ranch is the perfect place for large families wanting to choose from a lot of different activities, but to also spend time as a family. Horseback riding, hiking, fishing, or spending time around a campfire are just a few examples. We hope to see you all back at the ranch in the near future!...

My teenager daughter who rides everyday and I went to this ranch for a vacation. We loved the property and the staff. She met some other teenage girls that had the same riding level and they enjoyed special Advanced rides everyday with their amazing Wranglers Kelly & Virginia. I would highly recommend this ranch on any riding level, especially if...

Thank you for your review about our ranch and especially about your experience on horseback. Even after 28 years in the business, we are always striving to improve our riding program. It is always fun when our young guests make friends with one another- it makes for some fun rides together!

It's hard to describe all the wonderful components that so many people in our group of 23, ages 13 to 80, described this as 'the best vacation' they've ever had. The staff is exceptional. In the office, Adrian was endlessly patient with our planning process and Ally made everything happen during our stay. In the Main Lodge, Sarah and Emma...

I was completely awed by the scenery; it is absolutely breathtaking! The staff was very attentive and made sure the guests were happy. Location is a short drive to the Jackson, Grand Tetons and only about 75-90 minutes from Yellowstone. Lots of horses, riding opportunities, fishing, wildlife (bison, elk, moose, bears, deer, etc.). My family rode quite a bit on...

From the moment we were greeted until the moment we left the property, we felt special. The wranglers certainly know the horses and how to guide their guests safely as well as entertain. Everyone, from the main lodge to housekeeping is very friendly. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary during the "Adults Only" fall of 2015. The other guests became...

We are so happy you chose our ranch to spend your anniversary! Our "adults only" time, usually the end of August until the end of our season, is a magnificent time in Jackson Hole. The crowds have gotten smaller, the Fall colors start to show, and the weather is pristine. Not to mention, the fishing is fantastic! Thank you for...
