What kind of vacation do you need?

Bison Quest is available to only one private group at a time - yours!

One of our goals as wildlife biologists is to give you a new appreciation and love for the beauty of our natural world and the creatures that inhabit it. As a working “buffalo” ranch, we have a resident herd of these shaggy remnants from the Ice Age and are able to give our guests an experience found nowhere else. Nestled into an aspen grove and surrounded by a bison herd and mountains, Bison Quest camp belongs to you and your group. The two authentic log cabins, tipi, and cook lodge (all fenced to keep out the bison) are reminiscent of the Old West camps of the 1800’s but with the conveniences of today. Enjoy having wildlife biologists as your hosts to introduce you to the bison and resident wildlife, all in a private setting. So whether your interest is in fur, feathers, flowers, astronomy or photography, we have something for anyone who loves nature. So take a walk on the wild side and

Come join us for a look at the real “Wild West”!

Come On a Bison Quest for the experience of a lifetime in a single day! Available year-round (but depends on road access during the winter months).

For an unforgettable Western adventure, join internationally traveled wildlife biologists, Dr Craig and Pam Knowles, in a close encounter with the Wild Echo bison herd high in Montana’s mountains about an hour north of Bozeman, Montana. Relax in the tipi and enjoy a complimentary "buffalo tea time" surrounded by bison, then learn about the behavior, history and ecology of the largest land mammal in North America (yup, even bigger than grizzly bears!) during a "hands on" afternoon.


Do you want to "Own" the Ranch? Available June through September.

Enjoy living on a bison ranch where there are no other guests on the entire ranch - it all belongs to you and yours for the time that you are here.  You can join us and spend time learning, and doing, the kinds of things that wildlife biologists do, pick an activity daily that you'd like to indulge in, or spend the time totally private with just you and your loved ones.  Your vacation - your choice.

Perfect for families, retreats, small family reunions, or just those who need to get away from it all in a private setting.
