Rockin M Ranch in Alpine, Wyoming (39 miles from Jackson Hole) is a great alternative to a traditional “Guest” or “Dude” ranch vacation. I often describe us as a Do-It-Yourself guest ranch. We are able to offer an experience very similar to a typically very expensive guest ranch at a fraction of the price.
What is the difference between Rockin’ M and a typical guest ranch, not much. Technically we are zoned as a guest ranch, but our staff doesn’t serve meals or provide evening entertainment. We have a location like no other lodging facility in the region. Cabins have fully stocked kitchens along with a gas grill. Hot tubs are also onsite. Many restaurants are within an easy 10 minute drive.
Our location on the banks of the Salt River and 400 acres of river bottom allow our guests to have access to world class fly fishing for cutthroat and brown trout, literally within a rocks throw of your cabin. Also on site we offer daily National Forest horseback trail rides and we also offer horseback fly fishing trips along with guided drift boat fly fishing trips.
We have found over the years that many guests rarely leave the ranch property after they realize how many great activities can be done on-site. Our guests enjoy the ambience of the horses coming and going throughout the day. Guest enjoy treating the horses with carrots in the evening. It is not uncommon for the parents to enjoy a drink on their cabin deck while taking in the mountain sunset as their kids are fishing for trout nearby.
Many of our guests enjoy their evenings around the camp fire making s’mores, roasting hot dogs, or playing a game of horse shoes with family and friends. If you are entertaining the idea of a guest ranch vacation but may not like the high price or perhaps you prefer a more laid back vacation with less structure, you just found the right place.
