When you think of the Old West, the state of Kansas may not immediately come to mind. But the fact is that Kansas was once on the edge of the western frontier. Located on the eastern edge of the Great Plains, much of Kansas first became part of the U.S. in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase. By the 1860s, the Old West townships of Kansas were in the center of the cattle trade, and Kansas dude ranches reflect the state’s ranching history and culture. Dude ranches in Kansas take advantage of their rich history and agricultural landscape to attract visitors.
From tallgrass prairies to forested land, a Kansas dude ranch offers a surprising variety of landscapes. And the diversity of activities is just as impressive. Enjoy hiking, mountain bike riding, wildlife viewing, fishing, golf, volleyball and, of course, horseback riding. Feel like truly relaxing? Try out a whirlpool spa or sauna. It can truly be said that a Kansas ranch vacation has something for everyone.
Imagine a morning stroll through the gorgeous Kansas sunflower fields, an afternoon horseback ride and picnic in the countryside, and an evening barbeque and bonfire with the family. All this and so much more is possible at a Kansas dude ranch. Enjoy the natural wildlife and the animals living on the working dude ranches. Kansas dude ranches are suitable for families, couples, or singles who want to escape from life and experience life in the countryside.
