About the property

Kingfisher Bend Ranch is named for both the presence of the unique Kingfisher bird and because of its unusually tranquil environment. The Ranch was created to provide guests the opportunity to enjoy a peaceful, beautiful and rather remarkable place away from the hustle of life.

Kingfisher Bend Ranch is situated at elevation 7,600 feet on nearly 1,250 secluded acres in the southwest corner of Wyoming on the north slope of the beautiful Uinta Mountains where some peaks exceed 13,000 feet in height. The Bear River winds through the middle of the ranch providing excellent, private, catch-and-release fly fishing for trout from mid-July through late October.

There are many wonderful activities available at the Ranch.These include guided horseback riding (free to guests), hiking, river and pond fishing, campfires, rowing or kayaking on the pond, swimming and exploring. The Ranch also has a basketball/pickleball court, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and a Frisbee golf course.

Kingfisher Bend Ranch is a working cattle ranch as well as a guest ranch. Livestock at the Ranch includes our small "fold" (herd) of photogenic, long-haired, long-horned, Scottish Highland cattle, our saddle horses, and the more common Black Angus beef cattle.

Throughout the year, the ranch is home to a many different guests; horses, mule deer, elk, moose, porcupines, cougars, foxes, bobcats, badgers, beavers, coyotes, skunks, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, bald eagles, golden eagles, owls, hawks, Canada geese, various ducks, great blue herons, belted kingfishers, sandhill cranes, lazuli buntings, crows, robins, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, swallows, bluebirds, chickadees, and more.

The 1.3 million-acre Wasatch-Cache National Forest is less than five miles from the ranch. It offers wonderful scenic drives, hikes, bike rides and ATV trails. Restaurants, bowling, theaters, shopping, and an 18-hole golf course are 25 minutes away in Evanston. A lake for water skiing and windsurfing is 15 minutes from the ranch.

The ranch buildings (including a barn) were built in 2001. Each unit has a full kitchen with granite counter tops. Guests provide and prepare their meals. Linens are provided. The guest portion (2,100 s.f.) of the Main Lodge has two full bathrooms and sleeps 12 in four bedrooms (one bedroom with queen bed, one bedroom with two twin beds and two bedrooms each with two bunk beds). There is also a sofa sleeper for an additional 2 guests. The Main Lodge has a piano; a recreation room with foosball, ping-pong, and satellite TV; a washer and dryer; and an outdoor propane grill. About a five-minute walk from the Lodge are two (900 s.f.) Pond Cabins on the edge of a 1.4 acre pond stocked with trout. Each has a full bathroom, two bedrooms, and can sleep six (two in a queen bed, two in two twin beds and a pullout queen sleeper sofa).

Horseback riding is not available on Sundays. There is no charge for ranch activities. Horseback rides are led by the ranch manager. A liability release form must be signed to participate in ranch activities.

The VRBO calendar may not show proper availability because the 3 units may be booked separately. Please contact us for more accurate available dates.
