About Us

Nestled between the Rockies and beautiful Henry’s Lake, Jared's Wild Rose Ranch Resort is a small fishing resort and RV Park near Yellowstone National Park on 36 acres of land.  Founded and homesteaded in the 1860's by William Bowers, it was originally called Bowers Ranch. The second owner, Gil Telford, renamed the ranch Gil’s Wild Rose Ranch.  The name Wild Rose Ranch has stuck for over 100 years, and was changed in 1993 to Jared’s Wild Rose Ranch Resort, after then owners, McLloyd and Olivia Barney's son Jared.  Some of the original cabins dating back to the 1800’s have been remodeled and renewed, and can be rented today.


Cabins, A-frames, Duplex Condo’s, hotel style rooms, and other suites with kitchens and jetted tubs are some of the units we have to offer on this beautiful property.  For the Camping crowd we offer both dry camping, RV and trailer sites with full hookups.  Our location is perfect for just about everyone: Yellowstone National Park tourists, outdoorsman, fishermen, families, groups, reunions, and other vacationers to the Island Park, Idaho, and West Yellowstone, Montana area. Our resort has a variety of large to small unit sizes from one bed to ten beds.  RV spaces accomodate small to 45' rigs with full hookups (Power -50a 30a 20a, water, and sewer).  


The Wild Rose Marina has boat rentals, perfect for all sorts of exploring and fishing on Henry’s Lake. From motor boats, paddle boats, canoes, paddle boards, and kayaks, we have a little bit of everything! The Marina also offers boat launching and parking, along with shore fishing (excluding the marina boat parking area). 


Guests from rooms, tent and RV campers have access to Public laundry areas.  Restrooms and coin-op showers are available for campers. 

The check-in /office / reception desk also has a mini store, an arcade, an on-site restaurant, banquet room, and other facilities.

Outdoor hot tub, fire rings, park grills, and picnic gazebos are also available on site for guest use.  Have little ones? We have swings and a small playground for kids of all ages!  Forested areas and rock jetties are abundant for viewing the sunsets, wildlife, and nature.
