IMG_8502Wood River Ranch is owned by Michael and Barbara Stough, who’s passion for the Great American West and preserving its heritage led them to this valley almost ten years ago. Being conservationists first and wanting to offer the finest in western hospitality, they had their work cut out for them. They busied themselves for several years with restorations, improvements and new construction, everywhere from the hay fields and river bottoms to guest cabins and the lodge.

Mike’s passion for hunting and conservation lead him to obtain his Wyoming Professional Outfitters License so he could share that passion with others. Finally, Barbara put the finishing touches on the interiors giving the place a sense of charm found somewhere between the pages of Cowboys and Indians, and Garden and Gun. In upholding their highest of standards Wood River Ranch has become a jewel in a part of the west that hasn’t had the rough rode off it yet!
