The Historic UXU Guest Ranch has been in operation since 1929 and is a wildlife lovers, horseback riders and photographers paradise at any time of year. Located in the Shoshone National Forest right by Yellowstone National Park East entrance with millions of acres to discover on our unique trails through forests and mountain tracks providing spectacular riding and breathtaking scenery.

Your first impression on arrival will leave you with a lifelong memory of the setting. It is a very spacious Ranch situated on the North Fork of the Shoshone River. The abundance of adequate water and open space allows the Historic UXU Ranch a perfect setting for dining in the open air while overlooking horses eating in a lush green mountain pasture. We are a smoke free Ranch to protect the environment, prevent forest fires and give all our guests the best fresh mountain air available. Below is a list of some of the activities available for our guests.

Wildlife & Photography

We often have many different types of wild animals coming through the ranch. And if not through the ranch, they are often viewed on the riding and walking trails. In the fall months the animal activity is at its highest. Coupled with the changing autumn colors, the fall season is really a photographer's dream.



In the summer months, from June through August, we like to take our guests out to enjoy a little evening out on the town with a Western Flare. This is not included in the price a charge of $50 per night is made to cover transport, entry to the rodeo and Cowboy entertainment.



You will find our Historic Restaurant in the Lodge a great place to kick back and talk about your amazing day over a quality, filling and tasty meal prepared by our chef.


Bar Saloon

After a long day at the ranch you may want to kick back with family, friends and other guests with a nice cold drink.
