About Us:
Kara Creek Ranch is a working Guest Ranch located in northeastern Wyoming. Guests come from all over the globe to enjoy the beauty of our area and the true “western way of life”, participating in rounding-up cattle, driving them to summer and winter grazing pastures, participating in brandings and attending local rodeos. We have approximately 10 – 15 guests staying with us each week during the guest season.

The main ranch house is the primary gathering area to eat, relax or enjoy music in the lounge. We also have multiple cabins on site. We provide our guests with breakfast every morning, a packed lunch to take out on the trail and a large dinner upon their return. Breakfast is generally cereal, toast, bacon and eggs. Evening meals are typical cowboy-style: casseroles, pasta, roasts, steak and burgers, served family-style in the main dining area. Sides can include anything from salad to potatoes and vegetables.
