Finding Your Dude Ranch Vacation Without Getting Lost
We recommend that arriving guests do NOT rely on gps devices to determine travel routes through the National Forests to Marble Mountain Ranch. Straight line travel routes or "shortest routes" in the forest as determined by these devices may place you onto tertiary roads that may be seasonally closed, or otherwise inappropriate for your travel. Please review our suggestions above, and stay on primary travel routes during your drive through unfamiliar terrain.
Airport Suggestions For Planning Guest Ranch Travel Itineraries
For our guests who prefer to fly in, the nearest airport is a two-hour drive from the ranch. We suggest either the California Arcata/Mckinleyville airport (ACV) or the Medford Oregon airport (MDF). Shuttle service is available at $25/person each way ($150 minimum) and is free to guests staying on our 5 night package. Some of our guests are reducing air-fare by flying to San Francisco California or Grants Pass Oregon and building a Pacific Coast driving vacation onto their Guest Ranch stay. We are happy to suggest interesting vacation targets for those doing the scenic drive
