About Eatons’ Ranch and Helpful Info
Eatons’ Ranch is celebrating over 135 years of the ranching lifestyle! The oldest dude ranch in the United States begun with 3 brothers, Howard, Willis and Alden in 1879 in Medora, ND. They moved in 1904 to the current Sheridan location for a more suitable riding terrain for their ever-growing number of guests. Here’s where we’ve been ever since and we’re excited to welcome another season of dude ranch visitors each year, June through September. In the off season we offer Winter B&B Stays and also have the ranch available for as an event venue.
