YOUR dude Ranch vacation DESTINATION!
Create Memories at UXU Ranch in Wyoming near Yellowstone Park
The UXU Ranch has been family owned and operated as a Dude Ranch since 1923. It's among the oldest and most historic in the region. Our ranch scenery is dramatically "Wyoming" — nestled in the Wapiti Valley near the high-mountain fed waters of the Shoshone River with stunning views of the mostly snow-clad Absaroka Range mountains, rugged cliffs and rock formations in the Shoshone National Forest.
LOCATED ON THE BUFFALO BILL SCENIC BYWAY
Our Dude Ranch is located in the beautiful and dramatic Wapiti Valley in northwestern Wyoming. We are around 30 minutes east of Historic Cody, Wyoming and only 20 minutes from Yellowstone National Park's east gate (give or take a buffalo or big horn sheep jam – Wyoming's version of a traffic jam). This stretch of road, US Hwy 14/16/20, is also called "The Yellowstone Highway" or the "North Fork Highway" and was referred to by former President & outdoorsmen, Teddy Roosevelt as "the most scenic 50 miles in America".
OUR RUSTIC CABINS
We consistently get 4+ ratings on our exclusive & rustic log cabins. Every western vacation cabin at UXU Ranch is unique and decorated with locally hand-crafted furniture. Our cabin beds are built from local aspens, the cabins are all unique in design. Most of our rustic vacation cabins have mountain views and views of horses in the corral.
We have a maximum capacity of 35 guests which allows us to provide all of our guests with superior western hospitality.
