Montana Dude Ranch Vacations - Visit a Guest Ranch in Montana

Montana Dude Ranches

Montana is an inland U.S. state largely in the western United States, but because of its immense size stretches into the north-central United States. Although Montana is often regarded as mountainous, about 60% of the state is actually prairie in the Great Plains. The central and western two-thirds of the state have numerous mountain ranges (approximately 77 named) of the northern Rocky Mountains; thus the state's name, derived from the Spanish word monta ("mountain"). The state nickname is the "Treasure State." Other nicknames include "Land of Shining Mountains", "Big Sky Country", and the slogan "the last best place".
