Welcome to our historic ranch cradled in the
           foothills of the La Sal Mountains in southern Utah.


Pack Creek Ranch is part and parcel of the Old West with a history as a working ranch dating from the late 19th century. Legend has it the creek was named when a couple of prospectors shed their packs while being chased by Indians. Today, Pack Creek Ranch retains its whip-sawed look. We offer guests a relaxed and congenial atmosphere, comfortable accommodations, plus the opportunity for a unique Western experience.

You’ll find a warm welcome at Pack Creek Ranch, a guest ranch in the finest western tradition. Cradled in the foothills of the LaSal Mountains, the ranch affords a cool retreat from the summer’s heat while offering superb views of southeastern Utah’s high desert. Sunsets may appear as if brushed from an artist’s pallet. Our own specialties: peacefully rejuvenating atmosphere, unparalleled views, rustic cabins.

Pack Creek Ranch has been a favorite retreat for such notables as author Edward Abbey, environmentalist Katie Lee and actor Robert Duval to name a few. The Ranch features 10 fully renovated individual cabins. Most have rock fireplaces and full kitchens. You won’t find televisions or telephones in our cabins — Your peace of mind is our first concern. Moab was recently voted the number one destination in the U.S. to “unplug” but for those of you unable to completely get away, Wireless Internet is available in every cabin. Don’t worry about the unwanted knock at your door concerning housekeeping. We don’t provide daily housekeeping; however, just fill out the request form in your cabin for any needs you may have and leave it at the office and our staff will tend to it.

We would love to help you set up your vacation itinerary. Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are only a short drive away. White-water rafting on the Colorado River, hiking, biking, jeep tours, cross country skiing — all are within easy reach using Pack Creek Ranch as your year-round base of operation.
