Elk Creek Ranch
Elk Creek Ranch was founded in 1957 based on the conviction that the Rocky Mountain wilderness would provide teenagers with a unique summer experience. The ranch started small and has stayed small, with no more than 50 folks including ranchers, staff, and family. That smallness promotes a wonderfully close community where every child is important. The ranch has remained a family operation with the third-generation, many of whom are teachers during the winter, now taking over the leadership. The ranch is located in the Shoshone National Forest in northwestern Wyoming. With Yellowstone Park just to the west, we enjoy one of the largest wilderness ecosystems in the 48 states.
