Finest Fly Fishing & Big Game Hunting in North America

Off River Recreation

In addition to unparalleled hunting and fishing, owners have access to more than 25,000 acres to explore, recreate or simply enjoy the great outdoors. Looking for a spot to socialize, dine or relax? Try Elk Creek Ranch's world-class Lodge & Restaurant.

Ownership also includes the culinary excellence of our executive chef throughout the day - making your dining experience as special as the rest of your stay here. If you choose not to build a cabin on your home site, your ownership also entitles you to bring your family and friends and stay in one of six beautiful log cabins with a total of 11 suites that offer exquisite waterfront overnight accommodations.

Elk Creek Ranch recently added a state-of-the-art equestrian facility and now offers several horseback riding opportunities. Owners can saddle up for a backcountry or trail ride or spend time at the historic barn and dancehall where regular, private, or group cookouts are hosted. Or hit some of our trails on foot, bike or your favorite recreational vehicle. We have it all.

And Elk Creek Ranch now offers a unique sporting clays course along with a 5-stand for groups or families to experience together. The course consists of 15 stations outfitted with two shooting stands each with two to three throwing traps. Each station has a unique bird, such as the throw from the 60-foot tower or the challenging fur and feather station. Just bring your clothes, gear and a toothbrush; Elk Creek Ranch can handle the rest.

Forget your gear? Stop by our Fly Shop and pick up what you're missing. This charming porch-wrapped building is the welcoming point for members, where greetings are exchanged, guides are met, and activities are arranged.

In addition to fishing and hunting, members, their families and guests will find that the Ranch is the perfect venue for all outdoor recreation pursuits and for their children to enjoy the freedom of the outdoors and build memories:
