Welcome to the 7D Ranch, Wyoming’s premiere family guest ranch since 1958. We have a smaller guest capacity than most, which allows us to provide individual and personalized care. The ranch’s 10 rustic cabins are tucked into the scenic and remote Sunlight Basin, 50 miles northwest of Cody, in the heart of the Absaroka Mountains.

Surrounded by national forest and just a short drive from Yellowstone National Park, the 7D offers a setting of extraordinary beauty. Whether you are looking for a great guest ranch vacation, a pack trip into Wyoming wilderness, or a Fall hunting trip, let our friendly family and staff provide you and yours with an experience of a lifetime.


One of the oldest dude ranches in Wyoming, The 7D Ranch began as “The Dewey Riddle Ranch,” a guest ranch homesteaded by Dewey and Elsie Riddle. When the Dominick family of seven acquired it in the fifties, they opened it as a haven for family and friends from the East, renamed it the 7D, and have run it as a family operation ever since. From the Molesworth furniture in the Main Lodge, to the logs of the old cabins, the ranch helps us unite with the past. While much of the old West is quickly evolving, the 7D Ranch holds fast to its roots and offers guests a slice of the West as it was.
