Wonderful and beautiful ranch.

  • 5 of 5

The best accommodations you can find in the area. Best value, very clean, l have been staying there for years, can't be beaten. I have recommended the ranch to many of my friends and not one complaint. I had 11 fishing buddies stay for three to four nights. Plenty of room and sleeping accommodations for all.

Beautiful place for an outdoor wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend at Ruth's beautiful ranch - celebrated a wedding by the river, had plenty of room for all of our activities- from the rehearsal dinner in the lodge, to the horseshoes and corn hole games at the reception. Well maintained property with plenty of space, beautiful views, and a very helpful hostess, who also managed to be unobtrusive. Highly recommend this place, don't forget the binoculars for bird watching from the deck with your coffee!

Perfect family,business and fishing retreat.

  • 5 of 5

All of us enjoyed our stay in every way. From the super location right on the North platte yet close to the conveniences of Casper ( shopping, great museums,and restaurants)to the remarkable serenity of Red Butte Ranch. Ruth is an exceptional host and treats her guests like family members . The anglers in the group relied on Gregs river expertise daily to make their fishing adventures world class . Our large group of diverse people and interests are all intending to return to Red Butte Ranch very soon.
