Activities

in the real American West

The Bar N Ranch is idyllic for many reasons: our sprawling 200 acres, stunning mountain vistas, silence and solitude; but one of our greatest gifts is location. Situated only six miles from Yellowstone National Park and nestled at the foothills of surrounding National Forest, we enjoy convenient access to both national treasures and best-kept secrets. There is so much to see and do no matter what season you visit in. Explore seasonal activity options below, and ask our front desk staff at the ranch if you need assistance planning your adventure.
