DIAMOND 4 RANCH
is located in the rugged Wind River Mountain Range and is Wyoming's
highest wilderness guest ranch offering log cabins, mountain trail
riding, fly fishing, wilderness pack trips, and hunting in Shoshone
National Forest. We access the Wind Rivers from the Dickinson Park
Trailhead, the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie and Worthen Meadows.
The Wind River Mountain Range boasts the largest active glaciers
in the lower 48 states, hundreds of alpine lakes teeming with wild
trout, abundant wildlife and world class fly fishing and mountain
climbing. The unique setting of the Diamond 4 Ranch in Dickinson
Park gives you access to 100,000 spectacular acres. Saddle up and
join us for a real western adventure! There is something for everyone
- families, groups and individuals are welcome.
Jim Allen carries
on the family tradition of hosting visitors in the spectacular Wind
River Mountain Range like his grandfather did here in the 1920's.
Jim & Mary love packing in the "Winds" and are dedicated to
using the land wisely with minimum impact camping practices. The
Diamond 4 Ranch gets its name from the Allen's horse brand which
has a history from the days of the open range. See more photos of
the Allen Family
and Diamond 4 Ranch staff.
4 Ranch is proud to be named the BLM Outfitter
of the Year in 1999 by the Bureau of Land Management, as well
as the Shoshone National Forest Outfitter
of the Year in 1997. Jim is a past president of the Wyoming
Dude Ranchers Association and the Wyoming Outfitters and Guides
Licensed Professional Outfitter since 1973.
The Allen's Diamond 4 Ranch lies at the edge of the
Popo Agie Wilderness area where sparkling mountain lakes,
lush meadows, glaciers and pristine forests are right outside
your log cabin porch. At this hidden gem we take only a
small number of guests so you are assured a personalized
ranch experience. With no weekly schedule to follow, activities
are planned with each group and include daily riding, hiking,
fishing, and wildlife watching. The only "crowds and noise"
are the horses thundering into the corral each morning.
Meals are family style with the wranglers. Overnight pack
trips can be an additional adventure option. Rustic comfort,
western hospitality and friendly staff make the Diamond
4 Ranch perfect for families, small groups or individuals,
creating memories that will last a lifetime. More about...
