If you're looking for a genuine chance to participate in working ranch operations, Kara Creek Ranch is the right place. Not only do they graciously "meet you where you're at" with horseback riding experience, they spend every meal, every evening at their saloon, and every day out in the Black Hills making you feel like you're one of them. Hard working, good people, you'll come to think of as family.

Getting to Kara Creek Ranch

Kara Creek Ranch is located 15 minutes from the historic town of Sundance, Wyoming. Wyoming is known as the cowboy state and is the second most sparsely populated state with cattle often outnumbering people. It is also one of the last places where the true cowboy culture is still plentiful. Ranching, rodeos and cattle drives are just some of the activities that can be enjoyed in our beautiful state.

What to do at the Ranch

At Kara Creek Ranch, we have more than 5,000 head of cattle that graze freely over 70,000 acres of mountains, fields, hills and prairies. We raise mainly Black and Red Angus cattle and take pride in caring for our animals and ensuring they remain healthy and happy.  During our spring and fall seasons you will have the opportunity to work with the cattle – a contact that makes the experience at Kara Creek Ranch fascinating! You will work directly with the ranch cowboys learning how to care for the cattle and manage them – a truly educational experience.
