“If your family visits this remarkable
place, you’ll find a corral full of horses
and western hospitality.”
- Family Fun
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.
“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.”

Legendary Horseback riding
“Awesome program for new and experienced riders.
Beautiful scenery and excellent, flexible, fun staff!
- 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
“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
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,
“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.
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.

“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.”
