Sun Ranch


A walk through history

Share

The Sun Ranch, located outside of Casper near the Mormon Handcart Site, is a little-known treasure in the middle of some incredible history. The Oregon, Mormon, California and Pony Express trails passed directly through this area, which is now a national historic landmark owned by the Church of Latter Day Saints. During your visit, you’ll find Devil’s Gate to your east and Split Rock off to your west in addition to dozens of unmarked trail graves on the ranch property. Make your immersion into pioneer history a weekend by staying in the onsite Jade or Moonstone Suites.
