Chuck Wagon

Step aboard our old-fashioned horse-drawn wagon and enjoy a unique ride to the Blackfoot River. Sit back, relax and take in the joy of watching Montana’s famous Big Sky play host to the rolling hills, gorgeous backdrop and local wildlife that call Paws Up Ranch home. This scenic ride ends at the banks of the Blackfoot River, where you’ll enjoy an authentic chuck wagon dinner.

The finest offerings are prepared before your eyes. From all-natural chicken, Angus prime rib, fresh corn and asparagus grilled over a campfire to simple, scrumptious classics like baked beans and fresh-fruit cobbler warmed in a Dutch oven, you won’t walk away with an empty stomach. Before and after dinner, enhance your authentic Montana experience by pitching horseshoes and enjoying the extraordinary talents of a local banjo player and a cowboy poet.
