Escape to a different way of life. A place to discover landscape so big and open and rugged that it stretches your soul. Tucked just inside Montana's majestic Rocky Mountain Front between Yellowstone and Glacier National Park, the Triple J Ranch overlooks the beautiful Sun River Canyon and Gibson Lake. The road ends here! Out our backdoor is the famous, million-acre Bob Marshall Wilderness.
The ranch offers something for everyone; singles, couples or families. A wide variety of activities emphasize horseback riding, trout fishing and hiking on a smaller scale so we get to know you on a first-name basis. Genuine, gracious western hospitality never goes out of style and in our fast-paced world, the memories and relationships we make are the good things in life.
Our quality horseback riding program is suited to all abilities and experience levels. Well-loved Quarter horses take you on a variety of rides from the high mountain country to the open prairie where you can ride abreast, or lope should you feel like it. We enjoy teaching horsemanship to increase knowledge, confidence, and comfort. The high wrangler to guest ratio ensures flexibility and attention to detail.
A fantastic children's program allows parents a little freedom should they want it, or they can enjoy family rides & activities. Kids learn horsemanship skills, participate in arts and crafts, swim, hike, play games, fish. We help kids discover the wonders of nature in a safe environment and we treat them as we would our own; with love and respect. Teens enjoy activities with other teens or young adults. Boredom is not an issue.
Fly-fishermen take pleasure in our spring-fed trout ponds to whet their appetite for the Sun River or Gibson Lake. Guided or on your own. Being beyond all roads allows for endless hiking opportunities with wildlife watching or non-technical mountain climbing. Custom GPS maps and optional guides help interpret the area geology, wildflowers, and Indian history. Soak in the hot tub surrounded by mountain splendor after a fun-filled day. Evenings offer campfires with song, cowboy poetry, toasted marshmallows, and wild tale-telling.
Delicious meals are always a highlight and feature fresh homemade goodies, fresh garden vegetables, and locally grown meats. You may not take home our cook! Relax in your cozy cabin and enjoy endless stars in the clear night sky. Why settle for a hotel with a mere five?
The adjacent Bob Marshall Wilderness offers unspoiled, awesome beauty of the rugged landscape, pristine lakes and streams, elk, deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and black bear. Scenic interpretive boat tours combined with riding or hiking in the "Bob" are a highlight in June or July. September and October offer gorgeous fall colors for adults who want a quieter time at the ranch or for special retreats and workshops.
A lot has changed in the world, but not here. Since 1976, our family has provided authentic western vacations to folks from all over the world. Come as guests, leave as friends. Escape to a simpler way of life.
