We had an amazing stay at the Gros Venture River Ranch. As novice horse riders, the team of wranglers were exceptionally helpful, patient, supportive and above all friendly. It was fabulous learning to ride in some of the most beautiful terrain in Wyoming. The Gros Venture area of Wyoming is absolutely stunning and each day you are riding with an... More

I have never written a review before but I felt compelled to write this one. Let’s start by simply saying what a fantastic experience we had at the ranch.

My wife turned one of those landmark ages and decided that her grand adventure would be an, umm, dude ranch. I wasn't thrilled. But then we found the Gros Ventre River Ranch and we had one of our best vacations ever. First, the location. Gros Ventre RR is located just east of Grand Teton National Park. When I say "just...

On our third vacation at Gros Ventre- it was a terrific week! Great place, great riding every day, easy access to parks, beautiful scenery! Can't wait to go next year again! The horses are great and the wranglers make our rides really fun! Food is delicious and it;'s an all around relaxing time! A home away from home!

My husband and I just returned from our 7th visit to GVRR and are trying to figure out when we can return again. The owners, Karl and Tina, have the unique ability to make their guests feel like returning family. The ranch remains the perfect balance of casual comfort and attention to detail. The Fall scenery was incredible and we... More

Wow .. I waited 20 years for my trip of a life time. This was the one! The string of horses are so well cared for and the wranglers know their horsemanship. The scenery just cannot be captured on photos , you need to see it on horseback. We rode as promised every morning & afternoon. We were never disappointed... More
