“Solid attraction. Free. Must visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This is a very fun free national historic site. We didn't get a chance to tour the main house but saw most of the grounds. There are self guided exhibits in many of the buildings explaining cowboy and ranch life. We got to try some cowboy coffee at the chunk wagon. On Sunday we got a wagon ride around the property which was helpful in seeing a ton more ground. The entire day was free. This was an excelle .nt attraction to see an example of early ranching in Montana.

“Love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

We've been here several times and will return. Viewed their "haying with horses" demonstration and had a great time. Seating in the shade was provided along with interpreters to explain the haying process and answer questions. Beverages were available for thirsty visitors. Pictures were encouraged and the teams of horses and workers took breaks and were also available for questions. We'll be back to take the house tour. Great historical working ranch and tours are free.

“Grant Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

The ranch was not my cup of tea, but I'm still glad I went. Deer Lodge also has an old prison that gives tours. I think I would have rather gone there. Highlights of the Ranch are the blacksmith, the chuckwagon, and the main house. This was our last stop for the day having driven up from Blackfoot, Id on our way to Glacier NP.

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This site is 100% accurate in portraying the open range era of this nation. Authentic gear, buildings. Haying with traditional equipment, calf branding and a guided tour of the original ranch house from 1862. A wonderful lesson in this nations cowboy history without any Hollywood hype.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Only thing wrong is the address on the flyer is wrong, you need just go a bit further and you will see their sign. Be sure you see the house it was great, but enjoyed the whole Ranch.
