270 Eatons Ranch Rd, Wolf, WY


Celebrating over 135 years of the ranching lifestyle! The oldest dude ranch in the United States, begun with 3 brothers, Howard, Willis and Alden in 1879 in Medora, ND. They  moved in 1904 to the current Sheridan location for a more suitable riding terrain for their ever-growing number of guests.

General Information

Climate: At just 4,500 feet, we tend to have mild weather. Early June can be wet, but the remainder of the season is typically dry. Daytime temperatures are often in the low to mid 80s with temperatures falling into the 50s in the evening. Please visit the Weather Channel for current conditions in Wolf, WY.

Capacity: Our Wyoming dude ranch can accommodate as many as 125 guests comfortably among our 51 individual cabins.

Clothing: As this is a dude ranch vacation destination, there is no formality in clothing at the Ranch. Western riding clothes are usually worn throughout the day; casual and comfortable clothes are the norm when not riding. Lightweight jackets or sweatshirts may be needed for cool evenings and mountain riding, and rain gear is always a good idea, just in case. Do not forget to bring your swimsuit for our pool and hot tub.

Laundry Facilities: Coin-operated laundry facilities are located on the Ranch. Garments in need of dry-cleaning can be left in the office to be sent to town.

Ranch Store: We carry a small supply of drugs, toiletries, snacks and beverages in our store. We also recommend a visit to our gift shop; we have a fantastic selection of Eatons’ Ranch caps, shirts, fleece pullovers, jackets, coffee mugs and much more. Our selection of Southwestern and Native American jewelry is especially popular.

Coffee Shop: If you miss breakfast or are looking for a refreshing drink after your ride, the coffee shop is the place to be. We serve an assortment of coffees, cold drinks, bagels and cookies. Come visit with guests and staff between rides!

Town Trips: We have a van traveling to town every afternoon, Monday through Saturday. If you need anything from town, you can place your order in the office and it will be delivered to your cabin. For those who would like to visit Sheridan for the afternoon, arrangements for transportation can be made in the office.
