It was wonderful to get up close to Chester Jnr, he is one handsome buffalo. Leo is a lovely man, very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. The Ranch is such a peaceful and tranquil place

We didnt make it quite in time to catch the buffalo tours, but we walked down Leo's driveway anyway and he kindly let us check out Chester Jr. and the herd and take some pics. Very beautiful spot! Thanks Leo!

We never have seen a bison up close until now. The place itself is amazing but everything becomes surreal when you hear Leo call up Chester (he's like the Barry White of the heard 😆) and you see them get closer and closer until they...More

The ranch is actually closed until March 15 I believe, which we found out once we drove in. Glad we did...we actually could see the buffalo from the road and the big guy is huge about 2200lbs!

We had been hoping to stay here for a couple of days in July. Having some questions, we left a phone message, but have had no response. Then we read on a site called rocky mountain buffalo ranch (without spaces) that the Guest House and buffalo herd have been sold and the rest of the property is for sale. Trying to get further information via e-mail. If anyone out there knows more, please share. Thanks.

Hello, I'm visiting the area in May next year. What does your tour include? Also do we have to book in advance or can we just turn up between opening hours?
