What is there to do?

When you're in the frontier states of the USA, you really need to embrace the Wild West side of the culture, so when you visit Mountain River Ranch, you will be right in the heart of it!

Mountain River Ranch is a super fun place for families to visit. They offer Summer and Winter activities, as well as hosting an RV Park so you can make a trip of it if you want!

The Mountain River Ranch has been family owned and operated since 1985, which is a lot of happy families! It's an amazing place for food, fun, and hospitality too!

Only a short drive from Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Hole, and Idaho Falls, this amazing ranch on the banks of the Snake River is certainly one for all ages!

If you're around in Summer, then check out the Summer Theatre, with a Wild West Shoot out, horse drawn wagon ride, and Western style BBQ dinner. Don't forget your musical variety show too! The food is delicious - from chicken, beef, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and those true Chuck Wagon flavors! 

Then in Winter, you get to enjoy the Winter Dinner Theatre, as the colorful lights decorate the ranch with holiday cheer! There is hot cider for the parents as the family enjoys the horse-drawn sleighs, and you can spend the evening singing all the carols!

From prime rib to pork and tasty treats, the dinner will still reflect that Western spirit and be FILLED with taste!

Mountain River Ranch put on great Wild West, shows and other shows with singing and dancing and all the stuff kids' love, so even when you're back at base camp the kids' are entertained if you choose to stay at the RV park on site. Why not make a full trip of it! 

There are also the trout pond, sporting clays, wagon rides and both ATV and UTV rentals to keep the family busy!

So much frontier fun!
