We recently visited the Rock Art Ranch with a group of 12 people mostly in their fifties and sixties. We were greeted by Brently (the owner since 1945) and cowhand Clem. Both were extremely pleasant and knowledgable. The ranch has a fine museum containing excellent...More

It's off the beaten path and couldn't find it. When I called for explicit directions I was told not to bother because reservations are required. Wanted to see the buffalo but was told there are no buffalo.

Had planned to go there several years ago, and glad we finally made it. The barn collection of artifacts is excellent - especially all of the intact pots. The petrified wood collection in the yard( brought here years ago) is nicely displaced. The ranch is...More

A surprising little canyon with some nice petroglyphs. The experience will be more enjoyable if you visit in cooler weather as it can be quite hot in the summer. Even though the site is not very large, it is interesting.

Some of the best pots I have ever seen and the sweat lodge and petroglyphs will blow you away. The old cowboy does not do the tours anymore, but his grand daughter is very knowledgeable and excellent. June was kinda hot, though.

We had a bit of a windy day so didn't get out as much as we hoped. Towards evening the wind went down and we hiked quite a bit. Road horses the next morning and that was very exciting.
