Flathead Lake Fishing & Local Fly Fishing

Montana is famous for its blue ribbon waters, hard fighting trout. Let the Ranch be your base camp as you explore the many lakes and rivers of the area. Float the scenic Swan River in pursuit of native trout. Learn to fly fish on the Flathead River, where the fish can be as big as the river is wide. Or grab a packed lunch from the kitchen and board one of the fishing boats for a day of trolling for monster lake trout. Whatever your angling passions or dreams are, the Ranch is the perfect base camp for your fishing adventures and is happy to introduce you to the friendly and skilled guides who will help you and your families have the best story at happy hour.

Guided Mountain Biking and Road Biking Trips

Bike rentals are available on a daily and weekly basis. Children enjoy speeding around the property on their own bike for the week, or take a guided family bike trip to a secluded mountain lake. Make sure you bring your swim suits because there’s a rope swing into the lake!

If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, let our experienced guide take you on an epic ride through Flathead National Forest. Whether you’re a beginner looking for scenic, mellow dirt roads, or you want to get your heart pumping on some gnarly local single-track, we cater to all levels of experience.

Guests of all levels head into the mountains for an afternoon of instruction and practice by one of the states very best. Ladies sign up and test your skills or learn new ones. Guys sign up for the competitive men’s event. Or bring the kids for their first ever shooting lesson. This is an adventure you will not soon forget.

Mountain Laser Tag

Full Throttle Entertainment

Full Throttle Entertainment brings you Northern Lights Laser Tag, the world’s most advanced laser tag with ranges of up to 2000 feet, that’s 3 football fields long! The system is like no other equipment on the planet, mirroring all the technology in equipment the United States military currently uses. It is not your average indoor smoke machine and black light game. Lodge guests head out to a rugged mountain course where teams compete on real terrain. Climbing in trees, hiding behind boulders, laying in tall grass, and creating makeshift camouflage can definitely bring the kid out in everyone. Games are especially fun when fathers and sons face off for vacation bragging rights.
