If you can take 2+ miles of washboard gravel roads, this is the place for you. These are cabins nestled up along a ridge looking over the ranch where there are horse rides and pack rides you can arrange into the wilderness above Island Park. Other than the rough and rugged road (the county seemed to stop grading halfway down the gravel); the cabins were clean and comfortable, has a private hot tub on every porch - a very good selling point for this remote cabin. There are a lot of rules and policies to read, but easy to conform to. Make sure you buy or purchase your groceries cuz its a long way back out. There are a couple of restaurants you can go, which we did. The first restaurant we went to about an hour before they closed was 'out of food', literally! And it's a popular place called the 'Boondocks' - go figure! So we went to another place to eat pizza. There are absolutely no dogs to be with you, as this is Bear Country. Take everything out of your vehicle (in our case it was a motorcycle trunk and saddle bags) as bears come around at night. If in case you think you can hold your doggie in your car forget it - might draw in the bears. Look on the map, you'll see that this ranch is located above the area where Island Park land refuse road is; Isn't that where Yellowstone transports their naughty bears? We didn't notice, hear or see any bears so they are probably up much higher in the mountains.
