Some Wyoming Dude Ranches are quite remote with dirt roads that wind through the countryside, while others are right off paved highways. No matter how you get there, a ranch is worth travelling to.
Travel by Air: Gateways to Wyoming
Wyoming is the least densely populated state in the U.S. For this reason, the population does not support major airports. Wyoming is home to several smaller airports but you will most likely enter Wyoming through a larger airport, or land at a major airport and drive to your ranch from there. Major airports that serve Wyoming are Denver, CO; Billings, MT; and Salt Lake City, UT. See Wyoming airports located on a map to find the airport closest to your ranch!
Travel by Car
Whether you are driving from your home state or renting a car at a major airport, you are likely to see some beautiful sites from Wyoming highways! Guests often underestimate the size of Wyoming! Wyoming is the 10th largest state in the U.S. at just under 100,000 square miles. To drive from Yellowstone (northwest corner) to exit the state in the southeast area, the drive would take about 7 hours! Wyoming is full of wide open spaces, mountain peaks, high plains, and much more!
Don’t count on it! Even within some of the larger cities in the state, public buses, taxis, and Uber are not common forms of travel!
