Welcome to the only Dude Ranch in the
Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee!

Our Dude Ranch is centered around horseback riding. At our ranch, we have many activities for the entire family. Horseback riding of course is the supreme activity, but we offer other things in case you need a break from the trails. You can participate in as many as you can fit in, or just as many as you want. We are one of the few ranches that include rafting trips in our price. Be sure you compare what you get for the money you spend!

2012 we will be having several cattle drives with 6-10 guests each just like the old ranch hand days. Everyone during the summer high season gets to do 1 cattle drive. If there is room sometimes you can go more than once.




Our dude ranch will have 2 team penning events each week which has become our most popular event. Everyone enjoys this rodeo game of pushing cows into the box.

The pace goes from walking right up to galloping for those that have enough skill.





Kids as well as senior citizens get right in with the cows and ride them into the box and then take them out for another round.



Also included is two raft trips. The beginning trip (ages 5 and Up) is on Tuesday during the high season and also on Saturday during the low season. The second trip is more advanced (ages 8 and up) and it's done starting Saturday morning on the Big Pigeon River. You get get back in the afternoon for 1 more horseback ride. The Big Pigeon trip is only done during high season.





Another great water activity is tubing down the French Broad River,

which is done two times each week during the high season only.

Every evening there is some type of entertainment which might include a live bluegrass band or square dance pickers, sing-a-longs, bonfires, volleyball or team penning. Friday night is the great Square dance and hoe-down. This is the funniest thing we do all week. Everyone has a good time, so get out the camera's for the broom dance if you can stop laughing long enough to take the picture. There's only one way you won't have the best time of your life at our ranch, and that's if you're asleep!

Remember, you can do as much or as little as you want of our scheduled activities, it's all up to you.

French Broad Outpost Ranch is a premier Smoky Mountain Dude Ranch. Tennessee's best ski vacations, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting are just some of the great activities at our vacation destination for the whole family. Come on in and explore the Smokies vacation experience of a lifetime!
