Absolutely beautiful setting staffed by even more beautiful people. If you enjoy horseback riding, hiking, fishing, or even just relaxing, this is the place to be. Safe and enjoyable for the whole family.

There are experiences you have as a family that resonate for years. This is the Wind River Christian Dude Ranch experience. Our family of ten - grandparents, parents and grandchildren went to the ranch having no idea what to anticipate. Only knowing what we had read on Trip Advisor and Google sites and their website, we took a leap of... More

It is hard to put into words the blessing of being loved, cared for and entertained while surrounded by Gods Creation in " living color". We just returned from our second year at " the Ranch" we never thought we could beat our enjoyment level from year 1 but we were wrong. This year with the passing of my mom... More

What a beautiful backdrop for such a great Family camp. And absolutely no worries about kiddos because they are in kids camp, Tweens or teens during the morning while we attended a 1 hr optional Bible study. Jeff Warren was are speaker and he was great. The activities were wonderful - riding, fishing, hiking, climbing wall, zip line, golf outing... More

We love wind river. It's relaxing, fun, beautiful and rejuvenating place to go. This is our third year and we look forward to coming every year. Our boys start asking when we are going back right after we get home. It's a great setting in the mountains with lots of things to do. The food is fabulous! Staff is great... More

After a year of investigation, we selected this ranch for our "dream" get-away with our two grandsons, 9 and 11. God couldn't have selected a better place. It is impossible, in the few words permitted in this review, to do justice to our experience. Our grandsons, and we, have been moved and touched in ways that are unexplainable except through...

Wind River Ranch is amazing! We woke up every morning to the beauty of God's Creation, the Rocky Mountains. Our cabin was wonderful, comfortable and clean, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath & a front porch. The food was delicious, every day! One of the best parts was the Bible study and getting to know God and the other guests better through... More

How does one rate something that is absolutely perfect? We took our grandsons, ages 9 and 11, to this Ranch. They were reluctant to go, thinking it might not be fun. The day we left, they were in tears and still are when they talk about their vacation. Even though it rained for three days, they road horses, played volleyball,... More

This is the best investment in family time that can be made! We have been to Wind River 3 times now, and it is the highlight of our year. We have made incredible memories and friendships. The staff and service is impeccable. The individual family cabins are so comfortable and the food is fantastic. We can't wait to go back... More

Thru Wounded Warrior Project we spent 1 week at this absolutely fabulous dude ranch! We were welcomed at the gates by staff, then escorted by 2 horses/riders and received a warm, almost overwhelming, welcome from the rest of the joyous staff. The staff was exceptional and really took the time to get to know us by name. The food was... More
