Ride horses off into the sunset at these great family-friendly dude ranches.

Triple J Wilderness Ranch, Augusta, MT

13 of 12

The greatest assets of JJJ are its dramatic and highly diverse terrain and its proximity to both the 1.5 million–acre Bob Marshall Wilderness, an untrammeled land tract that’s accessible only on foot or horseback, and Sun River. Riding is the main draw, but trout fishing, nature hikes, and cookouts could keep you outdoors all day long.

Riding: You’re matched with a horse for the week and have your choice of morning, afternoon, or all-day rides of various levels. One of the ranch’s specialties is overnight pack trips.

Capacity: 24 guests; 70 horses and mules.
