63 Ranch


 63 Ranch fly fishing vacation ranch in Livingston Montana

The 63 Ranch history dates from 1863 (hence its name). In 1982 it was the first dude ranch in Montana declared a National Historic Site. Our family has owned and operated The 63 continuously since 1929. The ranch sits at 5600 feet altitude below Elephant Head Mtn., 50 miles north of Yellowstone National Park, 12 miles from Livingston, Montana.

Our ranch borders the expansive Gallatin National Forest, straddles Mission Creek Canyon, meets the craggy peaks of the Absaroka Mountains and rolls across grassy hills, rimrock ridges and sagebrush benches above the Yellowstone River. We think it's the prettiest country in the West. You will too.
