In Wyoming’s early days, pioneers discovered the cottonwood shaded stream now known as Crazy Woman Creek and established the Klondike cattle ranch in 1886 on the face of Wyoming’s beautiful Big Horn Mountains. Now, years later, the Klondike Ranch retains its western heritage and has delighted in sharing authentic western adventures with guests since the 1920s.

Named after a successful Klondike Gold Rush prospector who appeared on the ranch in 1890, the Klondike Ranch invites guests to experience ranch life and learn American cowboy skills in one of North America’s most historic and dramatic landscapes. Under the operation of the Tass family since May 21, 1920, the Klondike Ranch treats all visitors as part of the family and encourages guests to share in the land’s beauty and the thrill of a real Western ranch.

Each guest has his or her own well-mannered saddle horse ready to go at any time. Assist with ranch activities, including moving herds, fencing, doctoring livestock, roping, cutting and bailing hay, and irrigating pasturelands. During your free time, explore the remote reaches of the ranch, ride into the mountains, go for a scenic hike, or camp overnight under the stars. Interested in angling? Sample the blue ribbon Crazy Woman Creek. Wild Rainbow and German Brown Trout populate this scenic stream with some trophy catches measuring up to 28 inches! Wildlife viewing, historic tours to the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum, Fort Phil Kearny, the TA Ranch, and Outlaw Cave in Hole in the Wall Country, and weekly rodeos in Buffalo round out the recreational mecca of activities available to Klondike guests.

After a full day of work or recreation, enjoy a family style meal in the ranch house (all meals are served at convenient times), and then relax in the ranch’s new hot tub. In the evening, retire in one of three rustic log cabins that are clean, modern, and comfortable. One cabin features a living room with fireplace, kitchen, bath, and three bedrooms. The second cabin includes a living room, bath, and two bedrooms, while the third cabin features a living room, bath, and one bedroom.

Most Klondike Ranch guests visit in the summer with some arriving in September. To allow each guest adequate time to enjoy the countryside and the saddle, Klondike Ranch requires a minimum stay of seven nights with weekly rates per person. The ranch’s week runs from 3:00 PM Sunday to 10:00 AM the following Sunday, and the price includes lodging, meals with the ranch family, a personal horse, and a guide. All recreational equipment is provided. Due to the nature of riding horses in the mountains, all guests must be over age fourteen.

Experience the thrill of the beauty that the first settlers found and visit the American West as it once was – rugged, friendly, and unchanging. On your next visit to Wyoming, arrange a stay at the Klondike Ranch and become part of the family on this authentic working cattle ranch.
