The Undiscovered Jackson Fork

Discovering Little Jackson Hole

If you’ve been to Yellowstone or the areas around Jackson, Wyoming, you’ve seen some of the most beautiful sights in North America. But if you prefer a more personal, less crowded mountain experience, there’s a hidden valley just off the well-worn tourist path only 35 miles south of Jackson Hole.
The Undiscovered Jackson Fork
Now known as the Upper Hoback Valley – after the Hoback River that runs through it – this hidden treasure is home to migrating deer, elk, pronghorn, as well as raptors and other birds, all of whom peacefully coexist with a resident herd of bison. The valley was pioneer Davey Jackson’s first trapping “hole” back in the 1800s, dubbed Little Jackson Hole after he settled in the much larger Jackson Hole to the north. But while our valley can be called little when you compare its size to its better known neighbour to the north, when it comes to natural beauty, the place is huge.
The Undiscovered Jackson Fork
Among other things, Little Jackson Hole is home to The Lodge at Jackson Fork Ranch. This is your base camp to a wonderland of breathtaking vistas, magnificent wildlife, and unspoiled wilderness. A retreat in the middle of what is now a federally-protected icon of Western landscape that will be forever preserved for hunting, fishing, and recreation.
The Undiscovered Jackson Fork
Little Jackson Hole is where you can take on the famous cutthroat trout challenge known as The Cutt Slam. It’s where we have partnered with the Wyoming Wetlands Society to raise nesting pairs of Trumpeter Swans and restore the habitat of native Loons. It’s where in winter you can cross-country ski and snowmobile through pristine snow-covered valleys and mountains and view our winter elk feeding ground. And where in summer you can wind your way through pastureland ablaze with wildflowers and spotted with sagebrush. And where, when you’re done hiking or fly-fishing, you can help the ranch hands feed your bison neighbours or take a carriage ride with our Percheron horse team.

The Lodge at Jackson Fork Ranch is an advocate for a sustainable future in the West, a lasting legacy to be passed on to future generations. We’re proud of our role in helping to save the Hoback, once listed as one of the nation’s most endangered waterways, by getting Congress to designate it a Wild & Scenic River. We’re also proud of the key role played by our owner in buying up oil and gas leases on a 58,000-acre tract of pristine Hoback Basin land, thus protecting the area from drilling and preserving it for hunting, fishing, and recreation.
The Undiscovered Jackson Fork
To be sure, there are a lot of things you won’t find anywhere near The Lodge at Jackson Fork Ranch. There are no t-shirt shops, souvenir stores, movie theatres or strip malls within 40 miles. No Starbucks or Taco Bells. Just peace, quiet, and bountiful beauty. And that’s just the way we intend to keep it. As our owner likes to say, “We have everything Yellowstone National Park has – except the crowds.”
