You can almost cast from your cabin! Our southern property gate accesses 400 acres of prime water on the Salt River for nearly a mile up stream. We also have an onsite boat ramp to access the Salt. Three miles downstream is the convergence of the Greys, Snake, and Salt River.
All of these rivers have first class trout fishing. At this convergence is the beginning of Palisades Lake, a 15-mile long reservoir to entertain the lake fisherman. At the far end of the lake, roughly 20 miles, is the beginning of the world famous “South Fork of the Snake”. The south fork has a wide variety of hatches and trout species including Browns, Cutthroat, Rainbows, and Hybrids. Explore these rivers on your own, or treat yourself to a trip with one of our Trout Fishing Guides
It’s closer to us than Jackson! The famous west-table to sheep gulch Snake River white-water section takes out only eight miles from the ranch. The season for this section is from May to September. Trips are easily booked through one of the many whitewater companies in the area. Unguided boat rentals are also available in Alpine.
Tubing the Salt River has become a popular, fun, inexpensive and relaxing activity for kids and families. Many of the local shops rent tubes for $10-$20 per day. The easiest sections to float on the river are less than a ten minute drive from the ranch or just float back to the cabins! Shuttle services are also available.
Rockin’ M Ranch offers daily National Forest horseback rides from the beautiful ranch location. Our horses are gentle, and our guides are friendly. Expect to see spectacular scenery, beautiful mountain vistas, meadows of wildflowers and frequent sightings of bald eagles, coyotes, deer, elk, and moose. We rarely see other people!
Star Valley Ranch, Wyoming is a 15 minute drive from the Rockin’ M. Star Valley ranch is Home to three golf courses, Cedar Creek (18 Hole), Aspen Hills (par 5/9 Hole), and the RV Resort (18 Hole).
If you have never played a mountain course, take this opportunity. High elevations and many elevated t-boxes make for some great drives. There are also many narrow and challenging holes. Take several balls, you’ll need them.
These courses are open to the public at a very reasonable price, ($12-$38) and are very casual and family oriented.
Elevations reaching 11,000 feet! Surrounding us are the Snake River, Salt River and Wyoming Mountain Ranges. These ranges provide unlimited opportunity for the hunter, hiker, and horseman. Guided hunts and horseback-rides are available through the ranch.
Alpine is rated in the “Top 10 places to ride in the West” by Snowwest Magazine. An extensive trail system can be accessed 1/2 mile from our highway turnoff. The Greys River into the Wyoming range and McCoy Creek into the Caribou National forest can be accessed from this trail system.
The Rockin’ M Ranch has become a hotspot for the self guided hunter. Our location sitting within five miles of seven great Idaho and Wyoming hunt areas makes us the easy choice for a quality self guided (D.I.Y.) Mule Deer, Elk, or Moose hunt.
Stay were it’s quiet, drive to the crowds! Jackson hole is an easy 39-mile drive over a recently improved road.
