If you’re looking for an authentic Idaho experience, then this is the place for you. The historical Elk Creek Ranch is just 30 minutes from Yellowstone National Park. Located on a quiet and secluded 500-acre piece of property with a stocked pond, the ranch is a great family-friendly location to enjoy all that the region has to offer. Located near some of the best fishing in the west – from the legendary Henry’s Fork, South Fork of the Snake, Teton, Madison, Gallatin, and waters of Yellowstone Park – anglers of all levels can find a place to fish. While on the ranch, stay in one of their rustic private cabins, then take in the spectacular view of the lake while you enjoy your meals in the historic lodge. After dinner, relax on the back porch for a bird’s eye view of nature at its finest.

Lodging Details
Built in the early 1900s, the historic lodge stands as a symbol of enduring western craftsmanship. The lodge and its 9 guest cabins have been remodeled over the years, but each retains the authentic rustic feel of its historic beginnings. You will enjoy refreshing views of Elk Creek’s lake as you relax on your private cabin porch or join the family after dinner to admire the view from the lodge. Elk Creek Ranch only accepts thirty guests at any one time. Personalized attention to every detail is second nature to their staff – you will be welcomed like family and treated as valued guests.

Food and Beverages
Guests of Elk Creek Ranch enjoy three meals a day. Starting with a hearty farm breakfast, a delicious sack lunch for out on the river, and a warm family-style meal back at the lodge in the evening. For dinners, they have a rotating menu, and meals include country-fried chicken, prime rib, baked salmon, house-cut steak, turkey with stuffing, BBQ pork loin, grilled beef tenderloin, along with home-cooked sides. 

Typical Length of Stay
Packages of any length can be arranged. 

Non-Angling Activities and Options
There are great non-angling activities in the Island Park area, and while the fly fishing opportunities are endless, even the most crazed addict needs to take a day off now and again. West Yellowstone is located 35 miles to the north, on Highway 20. From there you can spend an entire day in Yellowstone Park. From West Yellowstone, you can drive through the Park to Jackson, Wyoming, winding past Old Faithful and other epic sites to Grand Teton National Park, and then onward to Jackson, Wyoming, and back to Island Park.

The Mesa Falls Scenic Byway frames the Grand Tetons, traveling south from Island Park to the small farming town and the world’s Seed Potato Capital, Ashton, Idaho. Along the way, you can visit Upper and Lower Mesa Falls and stop to feed giant trout at the Warm River crossing.

Nearby Harriman State Park has miles of trails to hike, bike, or ride horseback. The scenery is pleasant and there is plenty of wildlife to watch or photograph from tiny songbirds to elk and moose. Henry’s Fork Anglers can also arrange horseback trips.
