Kingfisher Bend Ranch is situated at elevation 7,600 feet on nearly 1,250 secluded acres in the southwest corner of Wyoming on the north slope of the beautiful Uinta Mountains where some peaks exceed 13,000 feet in height. The Bear River flows through the middle of the ranch providing excellent, private, catch-and-release fly fishing for trout from mid-July through late October.
Open year round, summer activities include horseback riding, fly fishing, kayaking, sand volley ball, pickle ball, basketball, horseshoes, and hiking. Winter activities include snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and sledding at the ranch. This property is all-inclusive and activities are included in your reservation.

The 1.3 million-acre Wasatch-Cache National Forest is less than five miles from the ranch. It offers wonderful scenic drives, hikes, bike rides, ATV trails, snowmobiling, and a groomed cross-country ski area. Restaurants, bowling, theaters, shopping, and an 18-hole golf course are 20 minutes away in Evanston. Park City and Deer Valley ski and resort areas are just over an hour from the ranch.

Year Purchased: 2001
About: The ranch is family-owned. It is not a motel. It is a special place with only three units where guests can unwind, escape from city life, find solitude and rejuvenation, have special experiences, enjoy memorable encounters with 'nature', and, at the end of their stay, feel that it was a wonderful vacation.
Why Evanston: Peace. Quiet. Tranquility. A great place to stay and play. A quick getaway close to Salt Lake City, Park City and Ogden. We have excellent summer and winter activities including horseback riding, kayaking, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to name a few, all included with your reservation. We're located at the base of the Uinta Mountains, where there are over 400 miles of ATV trails and world-class snowmobiling on thousands of acres of National Forest.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Beautiful cabins. Wildlife. Exceptional fly fishing in season. No charge for guided horseback rides. Solitude - near a highway but once you are settled in, you will feel as though the 'world' is many miles away. 1,250 acres creates an excellent world of its own. A broad array of enjoyable activities (and some excellent porches on which to sit and do nothing).
