Goosewing is a small high quality Dude ranch located just 40 miles from Jackson Hole and will accommodate up to 35 people in eight private guest cabins and three larger 2-bedroom cabins for larger families.

The main focus of the ranch during summer months is riding. They can cater to all riding ability levels and will match the appropriate horse to each guest. Troting and loping is possible in the flower filled meadows.

On offer are summer vacations including excellent riding and fly fishing - the Gros Ventre River, home to native cutthroat trout, runs through the meadows of the property.

The outdoor heated pool and hot tub provide excellent relaxation before the activities begin: target shooting, archery, roping, horse care and arts and crafts. Evening activities include line dancing, campfires, cookouts, star gazing and more.

Tell Us What You Think

Visited this ranch in early May. After a 2 night stay in Jackson Hole, we enjoyed an adventurous drive on a dirt track out to the ranch spotting a wealth of wildlife from deer, buffalo, elk and lots of birds. (Approx timing - 2 hours). The ranch is set in a very remote beautiful valley with quality facilities to entertain families or couples. Great for horse riding, fishing, hiking or wildlife viewing. Top tip - stay longer!
