This ranch is blessed with a great location. It is situated in a beautiful section of canyon, right on the creek, next to a hiking trail, and half way between Cody and Yellowstone. Please block enough time to enjoy it all. We could not take advantage of all that the ranch had to offer since some unusual weather (snow in... More

This is the first time we have ever stayed in a dude ranch, It was a nice experience but I think it's expensive for what you get. We stayed here 2 nights and the staff was super nice, Johnny the owner even upgraded us to a bigger cabin for the same rate. We did not eat here because the meals... More

We stayed at Blackwater Creek Ranch from Saturday June 25th until the 30th. The best part of Blackwater is no cell phone, TV, or internet except in the restaurant. That brings me to the food. Excellent. A different buffet every breakfast and dinner or you can order from a menu. Prices are more than reasonable for the buffet and that... More

8 of us went for an hour trail ride. It was great. We were intermediate and advanced riders. Jay, our guide was great! We had a great time and the horses were very well aligned to our needs. We had a four year old who spent the hour riding "pancake" a sweet pony. The caregiver stayed with him while we... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in May/June 2016 in a small log cabin (Bronco). The cabin is very basic and very small but cozy. Electrical baseboard heating works well and and given the environment there is obviously no TV nor WiFi or Cell phone coverage (Verizon in our case) that is useable, It is very quiet and you can...

I have stayed here twice now and enjoy it every time I am there. They have cabins for you to stay in that have no TV's in them. There is a creek that runs next to several of the cabins to fall asleep to. There is a game room for the kids to play in or even the adults as... More

My wife and I stayed here on a recent trip to Yellowstone and had a wonderful time. Quant cabins in a beautiful location, very rustic. No internet in cabins but there was WIFI at the main lodge as well as food. Food was very good!

We stayed at Blackwater Creek Ranch between 30/09/15 and 06/09/15. Fortunately for us we were let down by another Ranch which meant we booked Blackwater Creek at the very last minute (the day before in fact!). Both Diane and Johnie the owners were very accommodating and immediately came to our rescue with a planned week of Rodeo, Horse Trails, Buffalo... More
