Spotted Bear Ranch

At a Glance


  • Bob Marshall Wilderness is at your fingertips
  • fly-fishing opportunities are phenomenal


  • plan on a two- or three-hour drive on a winding and teeth-rattling road to reach the lodge
  • very remote and out of range for those dependent on cell phones

Spotted Bear Ranch Review

Book well in advance if you wish to stay at this remote yet upscale lodge. The two-bedroom log cabins here among the evergreens are cozy, yet have generator power, flush toilets, showers, fireplaces, and views. The ranch, reachable by a rough road, specializes in fly-fishing expeditions. Dinners are for guests only, and are served family-style in the historic main lodge.
