Dude ranch hosts the Burleigh family.

Bill & Krista Burleigh and their sons Chris & Alex invite you to visit Laramie River Ranch.

Laramie River Dude Ranch offers genuine western hospitality far from the tension of city life. Horseback riding is our specialty. We also have exceptional fly fishing, naturalist led hikes and wildlife adventures, a full children's program, cozy lodging, and satisfying family style meals.

Picture yourself in the majestic Rocky Mountains fishing for wild brown trout, helping our wranglers push cows between pastures, or just kicking back on the porch with a hefty glass of iced tea and a homemade cookie. You may catch a glimpse of the antelope which roam our sage hillsides, the elk which range among the aspen, or moose which occasionally wander down the valley.

Laramie River Dude Ranch has been entertaining guests since 1937!

The Laramie River Dude Ranch operated as the UT Bar Dude Ranch for over forty years. Guests from across the country and around the world discovered the timeless beauty of our valley. Some ranch structures date back to the 1890s. Newly remodeled to provide our guests with the modern amenities, the Laramie River Dude Ranch is Colorado's newest old dude ranch.
