The Ranch at Rock Creek
“Our entire family, ages 5 to 65, arrived at The Ranch at Rock Creek on a Saturday. Much to our delight, we just so happened to arrive the night of the weekly Buckle Barn night. The live music, amazing food and camaraderie set the tone for the rest of our weeklong stay! We chose to stay in the cabins on the river, and being right next to it and listening to the water at night was so dreamy.
We played family games of cards on the screened in porch each night while the kids enjoyed the snacks that were stocked in the rooms and the adults enjoyed some grown up drinks. The multitude of included activities are what set this experience apart from any other. The ranch offers wildlife viewing, a ropes course (with a zip line), archery, hiking, and the list goes on and on. My favorite had to be horseback riding with our own private guide, but the kids would likely say the bowling or cool movie theater. We also rode bikes all over the ranch which was the perfect way to get around!”

Going off the grid, turning off your cell phones, and enjoying the best location in Montana. The activities are what make the ranch unique, so if you want action you won’t run out of things to do. If you seek peace and tranquility, you’ll also have that in abundance.
Everyone, of all ages!
Watching the 80 horses run into their open pasture every evening. You can walk or bike up to the pasture gate and catch them all gallop into the huge, beautiful field. You really can’t get that anywhere else!
Best time to go
We loved being there in the summer, but the river was a little low for river rafting. So if it’s on your list, go in the spring or fall.
If you’re sensitive to heat, let them know beforehand and they’ll set you up in a room with air conditioning. Additionally, if you want total privacy, choose the amazing Trapper Cabin, but know that it’s almost a mile away from the main lodge.
Rooms start at $850 a night, depending on room type.
