Lone Mountain Ranch is a historic winter and summer guest ranch located in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Just 18 miles from the Yellowstone Park border, the Ranch offers not only some of the finest year-round blue ribbon fly fishing anywhere in North America, but also guided horseback riding, hiking, Yellowstone tours and an Outdoor Youth Adventures program for kids 4-18 years. Our highly experienced guide staff will help you discover the diverse fishing experiences this area has to offer. Float the legendary Madison and Yellowstone rivers in a drift boat, walk/wade the Gallatin River and streams in Yellowstone Park, or horseback ride to pristine high alpine lakes. Fine dining, comfortable log cabins and jaw-dropping classic alpine scenery compliment the array of activities we offer for the whole family. Winter offers fly-fishing, snowshoe/ fly-fishing adventures and ice fishing.

Fly Fishing: Our location in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem and permits allow us to fish very diverse waters from the Yellowstone, which is the longest free flowing undammed waterway in the lower 48 states, to alpine lakes reachable by horseback. Waters include the Blue Ribbon Rivers like the Madison, Gallatin, Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers, the legendary waters of Yellowstone National Park, like the Firehole and Gibbon Rivers, famous lakes, like Hebgen and high apline lakes in the Spanish Peaks where fish rarely see anglers, and private creeks. Your day could include driving a short 10 minute to the Gallatin River to walk/wade, driving to the Madison or Yellowstone to fish from a boat, taking horseback to a high alpine lake or walk/wading private creeks. Elevation of these waters range from 6,000 to 10,000 ft.
Transportation: Transportation included on 7 night stays (Saturdays only)
Travel Agents: We pay 10% to travel agents. Some restrictions apply.
Lodging: Stretched amongst the towering pines are scattered our collection of private log cabins. North Fork Creek winds its way through the retreat providing a soothing accompaniment. Each cabin is unique, secluded and outfitted with lodgepole pine furniture, featherbeds and patchwork quilts, a private bath, woodburning stove or fireplace and electric heat. Small cabins accommodate between 2 and 5 guests and larger cabins, like Doug Fir House and Ridgetop Lodge, can accommodate up to 18 guests.
Kids' Program: Our Outdoor Youth Adventures program is designed for young people (ages 4-18) to have fun while developing an appreciation for nature and building their self-confidence through a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities. These experiences are geared to entertain and challenge the interests of varying age groups. When you combine the experiences we offer with our kind, energetic and knowledgeable staff, the kids can't help but have fun and look at life from a different perspective. The confidence they gain with their peers outdoors is something they can take with them wherever they go.
Food/Dining: The dining experience at Lone Mountain Ranch is approached with unwavering care. Meals are epicurean exercises taking advantage of locally produced offerings where possible and prepared to satisfy the kind of appetite that develops after outdoor adventures. Breakfasts typically unfold with the likes of oatmeal, fresh fruit, banana pancakes and scrambled eggs served buffet style. Lunch offers a salad and soup bar as well as featured hot items. Dinner is a time to gather back as a family and share stories of the day over a three-course meal, including Crispy Panko Fried Jumbo Tiger Shrimp, Cast Iron Roasted Statler Chicken Breast and 12 oz. Grilled All Natural Angus New York Striploins. For those nights that call for something simpler, the burger hits the spot after a day of adventures.
