Bar U Ranch National Historic Site


A Bar U Ranch cowboy on site

Bar U Ranch is your opportunity to live like a cowboy. Explore the ranch and visit with the ranch hands. Learn to rope a steer, saddle a horse, make bannock, repair a bridle or boil up cowboy coffee on a fire. Wander the trails and dirt roads to discover the history of ranching in Canada. Pop into the stables, the post office and, of course, the cookhouse to learn about "home on the range". Back-dropped by the neighbouring mountains - it's a true Alberta experience!
