Wyoming National Parks

Many of our Wyoming dude ranches are located near Yellowstone and Grand Teton, offering guided tours, horseback riding, float trips, hiking, and more! Find a list of dude ranches near National Parks here:

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone was the first national park in the United States, welcoming millions of visitors annually. Yellowstone is renowned for its hydrothermal features like Old Faithful and geologic wonders like the Grand Canyon, but endless attractions are available. Please keep in mind that there are no dude ranches actually within Yellowstone; they are all located outside the park. 

Grand Teton National Park

Grand Teton National Park is located near Jackson Hole in northwestern Wyoming. This national park is known for its breathtaking mountains, abundant wildlife, alpine terrain, pristine lakes, and outdoor recreation. We have a few dude ranches located inside Grand Teton National Park!
