Top 10 Wyoming Family Dude Ranches: 7 D Ranch
Discover one of the oldest dude ranches in Wyoming. What started as The Dewey Riddle Ranch was renamed in the 1950’s and is now known as the 7D Ranch, Wyoming’s premier family guest ranch since 1958.
You will find the 7D Ranch in the scenic and remote Sunlight Basin, which is located 50 miles northwest of Cody in the heart of the Absaroka Mountains. With only 10 rustic cabins, the ranch is smaller than most, but you will find that this allows for each guest to receive individual care. Families will find comfortable accommodations in 7D Ranch’s two, three, and four-bedroom cabins. The décor and furnishings will remind you of how the west once was – simple, cozy, and comfortable. Every cabin has a private bathroom for your convenience.
If you want to reinforce your family’s connection with the natural world, 7D Ranch is the place to go. Their children’s program allows young people to experience ranch life and learn about ecological relationships on daily hikes and rides. A wrangler will match every guest with a horse and start off with riding basics. If it’s your first time on a horse, lessons are available! If you’re looking to fish, the Sunlight Basin is home to some of the country’s best fly fishing and 7D Ranch has a full-time fishing guide. Every night ends with fun entertainment like lawn games, cowboy singers, storytellers and campfires. Much of the West may be evolving, but 7D Ranch holds fast to its roots, giving you a true ranch experience!
