Fossil hunting near Our Heritage Guest RanchFossil hunting

We offer guided fossil hunting on the ranch. Look at our Facebook page for scheduled trips or simply come and hunt as an individual or family. We offer a package deal or day hunts with night lodging. We keep the fossil hunting integrity-filled, by not allowing any hunting to take place if we feel the land has been too picked over.

Area attractions

Our Heritage Guest Ranch is within easy driving distance of attractions such as Fort Robinson State Park, Chadron State Park, Fur Trade Museum, Agate Fossil Beds, Hudson/Meng Bison Bone Bed, Scotts Bluff National Monument, and Chimney Rock in Nebraska. Mount Rushmore and the Black Hills of South Dakota are also within driving distance.

We would enjoy sharing our ranch with you. Please check out our activities and see what we have to offer you for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We hope a stay with us will leave you with fond memories for years to come.
