Ranch Activities:

There's Always Someting Fun to Do at Our Montana Family Dude Ranch

Children: Since our very beginning, families have been coming to 63 to enjoy their vacations together – children included. Although we do not offer a formal “children’s program”, children are included in ranch activities such as horseback riding (children-only rides and/or family rides subject to our minimum age of 6 yrs); fossil hunting; square dancing; volleyball; playing in the children’s game room; roasting s’mores; playing with the ranch pets and much more. And let’s not forget about making new friends! A vacation at our Montana family dude ranch is one they’ll NEVER forget.

Fishing: Mission Creek, full of fat wild trout, runs for 3 1/2 miles through the ranch. We encourage catch and release fishing. Fishing in nearby Blue Ribbon rivers, spring creeks and lakes is world famous. Please inquire if you are interested in receiving further information about fishing in the area or would like a recommendation for local fishing guides near our Montana family dude ranch.

Photography: The 63 is a “shutter bug’s” delight with sunny days, big skies, changing light and awesome scenery. Wildlife, wildflowers, waterfalls, cowboys, horses and cattle create endless picture possibilities around our Montana family dude ranch.

Activities: At The 63 there’s volleyball, horseshoes, table soccer, billiards, square dancing, cards, games or reading from our library on western life and natural history. Hike trails, climb mountains, explore caves, or watch birds. Sunbathe next to our pond, or take a bracing swim after a hot afternoon ride. Kid’s roasts s’mores in our Indian tipi or sleep under the stars at our Montana family dude ranch.

Liability Waiver: With our guests’ safety and enjoyment in mind, we will require all guests who plan to ride horses at any time during their visit to sign and date our Acknowledgment of Risk form. We also require all guests to participate in our basic horsemanship and horse safety program, which we conduct every Monday morning (each week) before going on any horseback rides.
