... unfortunately for me though, I discovered I am anything but a world class fisherman. This was the third time I fished Monster Lake. While I had float tube fished it the two prior times, I had to rent one of their skiffs due to physical limitations this time. The lake really is designed for totally self-sufficient fly fishermen. They... More

Nice lake to fish and deft great sights.. It was just opened to the public recently used to be private and book only.. The residents of Cody were deft happy when it was made public.. It's a great place for the family

Monster Lake Ranch is a work in progress. There are many plans in the development of this property. When I called about the trail rides, I expressed some concern about the two hour trail ride. We were taking our eight year old grandson. We were appreciative that they agreed to do a one hour trail ride. Monster Lake Ranch is... More

This is the first review I've ever chosen to write. In general my time is too valuable to me to spend it writing a review of a travel spot. Monster Lake Ranch is an exception because of the wonderful time my family had there. My wife, I, and our 5 year old son spent 4 nights in an immaculate and... More

My wife went for a hike while I went for a horseback ride with the owner's wife and daughter. We rode up onto a beautiful bluff overlooking Monster Lake. No nose to tail ride for this outing. Everyone was extremely welcoming and the horses were well trained. A great time had by all!

This is the most amazing fishery i have ever been to. The fish are very strong and all 4lb plus.The new upgrades were amazing and the hospitality was first class. If you are looking for trophy trout fishing with down home hospitality this is a must on your list.

We just got back from Monster Lake. The cabins were well appointed, clean, And had really nice furnishings. We went for a shooting school -had a blast. Dan the owner treats you like family. Ted & Dori & the rest of the staff were excellent. We're definitely going back. AFT Customs
