HF Bar Ranch

How to get here

Like many special places, getting to the HF Bar Ranch is a bit of a journey, but well worth the effort.  And once you are here, we look after you like you’ve never been looked after before.  All you have to do is sit back and watch the Big Sky go by.  So here are some instructions for getting here from all different directions. Remember, we are just a phone call away if you need us!













Airports
In terms of getting here, we highly recommend flying to Gillette, Wyoming (90 minutes from HF Bar) or Sheridan, Wyoming (40 minutes from HF Bar). We offer a shuttle from the Gillette Airport from 8:00am-6:00pm for a fee of $100.00 round trip/vehicle. The Sheridan, Wyoming Airport is also an option, but if you have checked baggage you must re-check it through security in Denver. We suggest that if you choose this option you ship your bag directly to the Ranch. We do offer a shuttle service from the Sheridan Airport, at no charge. 

Further options for getting to the HF Bar Ranch are flying into Billings, Montana, Rapid City, South Dakota, or Denver, Colorado and renting a car. There are more flight options on major airlines into these communities, and many guests like to have a car available during their stay on the Ranch. Billings is a 2.5 hour drive, Rapid City is a 3.5 hour drive, and Denver is 6.5 hours.

At the bottom of the ramp, take a right onto a gravel road for, approximately, 1 1/2 miles until you intersect with Shell Creek Road. Take a left and follow Shell Creek Road up and down and around for about 7 miles until you come to a “T” junction with Rock Creek Road.

From the middle of town’s Main Street (you’ll be a major intersection with a stop light) take Fort Street west (toward the Mountains) until you pass the IGA. Immediately after the IGA, take a right onto DeSmet Avenue and follow it straight out of town where it becomes French Creek Road when you veer off to the left when you can see the street is ending. Stay on French Creek Road exactly 12.5 miles (about 6 of which will be pavement and 6 1/2 will be gravel). Pass the Bud Love Winter Elk Feeding Range and the UM Ranch, go up a hill and at the bottom the road will intersect with Rock Creek Road. The Ranch gate will be to your left. The buildings are two miles from the gate. The trip from Buffalo to the HF Bar is 12.5 miles (25 minutes).

Take Interstate 25 north towards Buffalo. Just past Buffalo you will turn off at the Rock Creek Road exit (Exit 53). Take a left at the bottom of the exit ramp and travel for, approximately, 3 1/2 miles to the juncture of Rock Creek Road and Johnson Creek Road (it’s a “T” junction so you can’t go straight anymore). Take a right onto Rock Creek Road and follow it, approximately, 7 miles to the HF Bar gate (the road will have turned to gravel from pavement about 1/2 way there). The Ranch buildings are exactly 2 miles from the gate. At the swimming pool, the road forks. Take either fork and park and follow signs to the Ranch Office for check-in.
