For the ultimate Western experience, hitch your horse and hang up your cowboy hat at one of Oklahoma's authentic guest ranches. Slow down, leave the hustle and bustle of the cities behind, and let the lure of the Old West whisk you away on a genuine cowboy adventure. These Oklahoma guest ranches invite you to earn your spurs with endless Western-themed activities — learn to rope, hone your rifle skills, or even shoot a bow and arrow before feasting on a fine chuckwagon meal around a crackling campfire. From the rugged panhandle to Oklahoma's rolling hills, guest ranches across the state are ready to provide the ultimate dude ranch vacation. Rough-it in style with a stay in an authentic teepee at Meadowlake Ranch in Sand Springs or enjoy the comforts of a cozy cabin at Tatanka Ranch in Stroud after a day of exploring the surrounding scenery on horseback. For a taste of genuine cowboy life, check out Hoot Owl Ranch in Kenton and join the owners in a beautiful canyon for hiking, bird watching, horseback riding and more; or, join a guided trail ride at Hitching Post Lodging & Ranch to witness Oklahoma's deep-rooted Western heritage come to life.
