In 2012, their vision became a reality when the Eddleman’s found their dream destination nestled in the heart of Buffalo Bill Cody country. This nearly 10,000 acre ranch is conveniently located 8 miles south of beautiful downtown Cody, Wyoming and only 50 miles from Yellowstone National Park. The management and service team at Monster Lake Ranch hope you can truly experience why Buffalo Bill spent his life in Cody, why some of the leading fly fisherman and bird hunters in the world rate Monster Lake Ranch their top destination choice. Previous guests claim the Eddleman’s have done just that, brought the true living experience of Wyoming’s magnificent cowboy and fishing history into their lives.
The ranch currently offers a multitude of activities, including world class flat water fly-fishing in either of our private lakes,Monster Lake or Quick Lake. We offer trail rides for all levels of riders, authentic wagon rides, hiking, wildlife viewing, pistol and long range shooting courses, and upland bird hunting. Complete instructional clinics on fly-fishing, bird hunting, barrel racing and general horsemanship are offered as well. Whether you decide to hike, ride, fish, shoot or hunt, there is truly something to inspire every outdoor enthusiast.
Along with spectacular outdoor appeal, Monster Lake Ranch offers comfortable lodging, quality dining and plenty of entertainment, including our old west saloon. We offer RV hook-ups, or cowboy camp tents and Indian ti pis for a more authentic western adventure. We’ll even bring out chuck (cowboy slang for food) for those guests who wish to eat dinner under a blanket of twinkling stars on the open range. How about western music while enjoying an after dinner cocktail from our collectors choice of spirits, in a personal setting at the Cutthroat Saloon.
