Our famous cookouts and campfires
It wouldn’t be an Averill’s dude ranch vacation if we didn’t take you and your family out, via horse or vintage fire engine, to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner around a blazing campfire in the wooded foothills surrounding our ranch. Here are the highlights:
A Family-Oriented, Early-Morning Ride With a Hot Breakfast
Imagine a leisurely, early morning horseback ride up a forested ridge to the smell of woodsmoke, bacon, and coffee in the woods. That’s the character of our beloved breakfast ride.
A Longer, 4-5 Hour Ride With Lunch for Intermediate and Advanced Riders
If you’d like to take a longer ride we offer a great lunch ride up to a rustic hillside cabin that provides gorgeous views of Swan Lake.
Mountain Steak Fry
A Family Tradition on Wednesday Nights
Every Wednesday night, we put on our classic Steak Fry in the woods above our ranch with a bonfire and live entertainment. Ride your horse up to the site or take a seat in our vintage fire engine and enjoy a real Montana cookout with campfire, cowboy songs and cold beer.
