Dude, Where’s My Ranch?

City slickers looking to escape the urban jungle can find refuge in the lure of the Wild West and the people in Oregon that bring it to life. Visitors looking for a rugged, realistic version can partake in the operation of working cattle ranches, while others offer a more classic “dude ranch” experience, including mountain retreats, good food and a healthy helping of horseback riding.

Nestled on the floor of a steep canyon next to the Umatilla River and surrounded by old growth pine and fir trees in Eastern Oregon, the Bar M Ranch property in Adams is home to a hand-hewn main lodge and horseback riding galore. Guests can hit the trails several times a day and return to relax in Bar M’s spacious pool heated by a natural hot spring, or perfect the art of casting with hands-on fly fishing lessons.

Set on 14,000-acre Fishhole Creek Ranch east of Klamath Falls in southwestern Oregon, Aspen Ridge Resort lets visitors experience the day-to-day workings of an operating cattle and buffalo ranch. In Bend, the Rock Springs Guest Ranch places an emphasis on horseback riding and provides an extensive program for young buckaroos. The Long Hollow Ranch in Sisters has operated as a working cattle ranch for more than 100 years. Guests can ride trails or work alongside ranch hands riding fence, tending cattle or moving irrigation lines. Fishing for trout and bass is plentiful on ranch reservoirs.
