An evening you won’t soon forget
Grab the saddles and hitch up the wagon for an evening you won’t soon forget. You can ride out to Yancy’s Hole on a horse or in a covered wagon. When you arrive you’ll find those cooks dishin’ up some real cowboy grub at our popular Old West Dinner Cookout.
The coffee’s brewin’ over the open campfire, and our wranglers love talkin’ your ears off over a strong “cup o’ Joe!” When we ring the “dinner bell”, you’ll line up for real western beef steaks cooked to order, our signature Roosevelt Baked Beans, potato salad, coleslaw, cornbread muffins, and fruit crisp. And if all this is not enough, you’ll find your boots tappin’ to old western songs sung by our singin’ cowboy. You may have come here as a city slicker, but you’ll go back as a regular cowpoke!

Best night in Yellowstone
The old west dinner cookout was the best evening of our entire stay in Yellowstone. It was so much fun for everyone, young and old. The dinner was fantastic! We'll do it again next year.
A MUST DO!!
My family went this past June. Loved the ride to the site. We were lucky to be in the first wagon so didn't have to deal with dust. The dining site was beautiful and the food was awesome. We plan on going back in 2018 and will definitely will be doing the cookout again.
