For those who want a bit more of a remote ranch experience, three guest ranches less than an hour from town provide just that. Step into the past at Nine Quarter Circle Ranch, established in 1912 and operated by the same family for three generations. Covered Wagon Ranch, which opened in 1925, has maintained its original charm despite the passage of time. Elk Horn Ranch, which joined the National Register for Historic Places in 2016, has seen little change since its establishment in 1922. All three ranches are surrounded by millions of acres of national forest and are in close proximity to Yellowstone National Park.
