Smoke Rise Ranch .... Come Get Away From it All. 

A western-style guest ranch nestled in the 

rolling hills of Southeastern Ohio

Smoke Rise Ranch and Resort is nestled in the rolling hills​ of Southeastern Ohio. The resort is a working cattle ranch that offers guests an opportunity to experience the adventures of the west, not so far from home. 


Located just 7 miles from Burr Oak State Park, Smoke Rise is comprised of 2000 acres of privately owned land, bordered by a wildlife management area and the Wayne National Forest, totaling over 30,000 continuous acres.


Whether you prefer to be part of the action – with cattle drives, team penning, cow cutting and guided trail rides, or to ride at your leisure – Smoke Rise is sure to give you a taste of the old west and the famed cowboy life-style. 


After a long day in the saddle, be sure to stop down by the arena and gather around the campfire for some music and fellowship. 


If you aren't into horses, no worries! Come for the year-round camping, hiking, and fishing. As long as you enjoy the great outdoors, you will fall in love with Smoke Rise Ranch.




We are the horse lovers' paradise! 


Bring your own horse, or rent one of ours and enjoy the breathtaking views 

of the remote areas of Southeastern Ohio.


For years, trailriders from across the United States have enjoyed the diversity of our woodland trails. Many choose to ride our well marked trails on their own, while others prefer to be guided by our trusty wranglers.
