So much to do! Learning to fly fish, horseback riding on wonderful creekside and hillside trails, learning to shoot a rifle, eating fantastic food, drinking fantastic wine, meeting wonderful people - so, what's not to like here?

Originally, we were closely comparing 3 different luxury ranches in Montana prior to booking this trip. In the end, we settled on The Ranch at Rock Creek because it was selected as a National Geographic Unique Lodge and because we thought it was more geared towards adults.
