Our family has been to Elk Mountain Ranch 13 separate weeks since 1993 and 2012. We have visited four other dude ranches in Colorado and Wyoming and there are none that compare in our opinion. The guest size is just large enough to enjoy many different people, yet small enough to get to know everyone and gain new friendships. The staff has been great year in and year out. Tom and Sue, the owners, truly care about your experience. We have gone to the Ranch with both older and younger children and there is something to do for each age group. We even took our daughter as a six month old and it was great! The cabins are comfortable and the food is great. We like to ride, and the horses and riding is enjoyable, but there are also many other things to do. It is a great experience for even novice riders!
