A Bar A Ranch

Join our Summer Community

The A Bar A Ranch is one of the West’s original guest ranches, established in 1922. We are located in southern Wyoming’s Medicine Bow Mountains, on the North Platte River. 

Guests visit from across the country and around the world to ride horses, fly-fish, hike, and enjoy other out-door activities with their families and friends. Many of our guests have been returning to the Ranch for generations. Our beautiful remote location and the family atmosphere contributes to a unique sense of community among guests and staff at the A Bar A.
