Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a weight limit for horseback riding?

Due to the mountain terrain in which we ride and the stature of our horses, the Gros Ventre River Ranch has a maximum horseback riding weight of 250 pounds. Please click here for more detailed information.

Do you require a deposit to confirm a reservation?

Yes, we require a deposit. For parties of 7 people or less, we require two installments of 35% to confirm a reservation with us. A first installment of 35% of the base reservation cost is due upon booking. The second installment of 35% of the base reservation cost is due 60 days prior to your stay with us. Upon arrival at the ranch, the remainder of your bill will be due, including taxes and service charge. For parties of 8 people or more, we require a non- refundable deposit of 75% of the base reservation cost. The remainder of your bill will be due 60 days prior to your stay with us.

What if we have to cancel our reservation?

If you cancel more than 60 days prior to the first day of your reservation date, you may rebook later in the season, if space is available. If you are unable to rebook and we are able to fill your space with other guests, we will refund your deposit less $100 per room reserved in your reservation. If we are unable to fill the space, your deposit is forfeited. If you cancel less than 60 days, your deposit is 100% forfeited. Parties of 8 or more are 100% non-refundable at all times. We strongly recommend trip cancellation insurance from TravelGuard.

What is the service charge I see on my bill?

The ranch charges a 15% service charge for services provided by all its staff and for its guided activities.

Are there any additional expenses?

You will see sales tax, lodging tax, and a tax on service charge added to your bill. Of course, any incidentals from our gift shop will be added to your invoice.

Do we have to pay extra for wine, beer, fishing equipment?

Our ranch is all-inclusive. Our rates include all meals including wine/beer/soda, all activities including horseback riding, fly fishing with or without a guide, and much more. Click here to see what else the Gros Ventre River Ranch offers to each of its guests.

All reservations are for a 6 night stay. Do you provide a credit/refund if I have to leave early?

We are sorry, but we are unable to refund any monies for early departures. We strongly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

I booked a cabin with a friend, but the friend cannot come. Does my rate

Please note that should a member of your party be unable to come, you will still be charged according to the number of persons in the party upon booking. It’s always better to book for less people and add guests than the other way around!

How do I pay?

We accept cash, check, credit card, or money orders.

What time can I check in/check out?

Please plan to arrive on the ranch between 3:00-6:00 pm on the day of your arrival. Check out time is no later than 11:30 am on the day of your departure.

What activities do you provide on check in or check out day?

A full service breakfast will be offered from 7 am – 9 am on Saturday morning and we will provide an opportunity for a morning ride for those people desiring one more chance in the saddle. Walk, Walk/Trot, and Walk/Trot/Lope rides will be offered, each ride going out for approximately 2 hours and back on the ranch in time for you to clean up, finish packing, and meet the 11:30 am departure time.

Do you allow pets?

No. It is our policy to keep the ranch and its facilities pet free.

I am a vegetarian. Can you accommodate my dietary needs?

Our set menu can be adapted to satisfy many different types of dietary needs, including vegetarian. With advance notice, we can provide meals for people with food allergies and dietary restrictions, such as those with celiac disease and dairy or nut allergies. However, our facility may contain dairy, soy, nuts, gluten, and egg and is not a kosher environment.

Are you a smoke-free establishment?

We do not allow smoking in any of our buildings and request that smokers smoke in designated areas. We do not allow smoking near our barn, our horses, or out on the trail.

Should I rent a car?

We highly recommend renting a car during your stay. The Jackson Hole valley has so much to explore, including Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
