on US Highway 16, then turn right at

Hunter Creek Road to our ranch road.

If you’re flying, commuter flights are

available from Denver to Sheridan,

just 33 miles from Buffalo. Flights

into Casper, Wyoming and Billings,

Montana are also available.

The ranch supplies transportation

to and from Sheridan.

“If your family visits this remarkable

place, you’ll find a corral full of horses

and western hospitality.”

- Family Fun

Welcome to

Paradise

I’d like to introduce you to a special place

called Paradise Guest Ranch. Operated

as a guest ranch since 1907, we remain

dedicated to the western tradition of

offering guests attentive hospitality, rustic

elegance and exciting outdoor adventure.

All in a setting of unparalleled beauty.

Surrounded by over a million acres

of the Bighorn National Forest with

flowering meadows and clear trout

streams, the horseback riding,

fly fishing and hiking opportunities

abound. With this kind of elbow room,

don’t expect to see the same trail

twice. Join us in the place where

“good friends and memories are made.”

t h e s e t t i n g

Guests leave the ranch feeling like old friends,

convinced that this beautiful valley in

the Big Horn National Forest is their

home away from home.”

- Better Homes & Gardens


Our cabins are well equipped and

beautifully appointed with fireplaces,

kitchenettes, western art, and outdoor

porches with mountain meadow views.

Nestled between our cabins, our dining

room offers three hearty meals a day with

a gourmet flair. Choose from a unique

array of wines and pair your selection

with dinner on Gourmet Night. You’ll love

our French Creek Saloon, which features

our weekly talent show, square dance,

and is the perfect place to relax and

review the day with friends and family.

our accommodations

“Those searching for paradise need not travel further than

Wyoming, where for the past eighty years Paradise Guest

Ranch has been serving up western hospitality.”

- Country Inns Bed & Breakfast

Legendary Horseback riding

“Awesome program for new and experienced riders.

Beautiful scenery and excellent, flexible, fun staff!

Very dependable!”

- The Tylers

If you get up early, you’ll see our string

of horses, their nostrils steaming as they

thunder down from high mountain

meadows to the ranch corrals.

We’ll custom fit you to a horse that best

matches your riding ability, and you’re

ready to spend an afternoon team

penning steers, or take off with your

group on a lively half-day lope. All-day

lunch rides have become a tradition.

Ride to a high mountain stream or

lake for spectacular scenery and

fishing or discover the enchantment

of the Big Horn Mountains on an

all-day ride through Red Canyon.

Riding instruction is available, and fits

well with our flexible riding program.


lue ribbon fly fishing discover our paradise

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

This is our philosophy on fishing.

We feature expert instruction and unique

fly fishing excursions into blue ribbon

trout waters such as the Middle Fork of the

Powder River, the North Platte, or nearby

high lakes and streams. Cutthroat, Eastern

Brook, Rainbow and Brown Trout abound

in the area in and around Paradise.

Allow us to introduce you to the magic

of fly fishing in the Big Horns.

“The fishing program is superb. Fishing on the ranch

is very enjoyable. The guides and trips are consistently

excellent, both in terms of fishing and guiding.”

- Tom & Valerie Johnston

While our ranch activities are plentiful,

guests are encouraged to explore this

beautiful country. Hike into the red rock

canyons of the legendary Hole in the

Wall country, float the waters of the Wind

River Canyon, or spend the day exploring

museums or shopping the nearby western

towns of Buffalo and Sheridan, Wyoming.

Whether it’s on or off

the ranch, the activities

are endless.

“Riding, trout fishing in a stream or stocked pond (have your catch cooked to order),

naturalist led hikes, chuck-wagon dinners, square dancing, rodeos, talent show.

All this and enough drop-dead scenery here for everyone.”

- Parents Magazine

the fun

FUN, our honest to goodness ranch

brand, is our specialty. Our Kid’s

Program is about flexibility. In our

program, kids and parents can

interact as much or as little as they

like. Our Kid’s Program counselors

are ready to guide your children

through a week of activities that

they will remember for a lifetime.

“One of the best things about the ranch is knowing that our

kids are safe and having fun at all times.”

-Nick & Carol, Nicholas & Carleigh Fedorka,

Meadville, PA

“Where can kids star in their own

rodeo? Paradise Guests Ranch,

where each guest six and over

is assigned his own horse.

The ranch makes families a priority.”

- Ladies Home Journal

Highlights of the week are fishing day, pony rides, arts and crafts

and the finale of the week: The Kid’s Rodeo in the Paradise Ranch

arena, complete with bleachers. Teens love having their own

program with teen socials and even an overnight pack trip.

our past

Paradise Guest Ranch sits smack-dab

in the middle of the Old West. In fact,

some say it still is the Old West. Owen

Wister once paid the ranch a visit to gain

inspiration for his time-honored book

The Virginian. The Johnson County Cattle

Wars took place just outside our hometown

of Buffalo, Wyoming. And most notable,

the infamous Hole-In-The-Wall hideout of

Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid lies

just down the road from us in the Southern

Big Horn Mountains. In 2007, Paradise Guest

Ranch celebrates its 100th anniversary

as a dude ranch. Ranch owners Clay

and Leah Miller and Kevin and Rebecca

McMahon welcome you to sample the rich

western history, and to share their little

piece of Paradise in Wyoming’s scenic and

uncrowded Big Horn Mountains.

h i s t o r y

“There is a paradise, high in the mountains of Wyoming,

that can claim the name without blushing or apologizing. It

is a nearly mystical niche where the owls call at night and the

eagles soar over the peaks in the cool clearness of the day.”

- St. Paul Sunday Pioneer Press
