Welcome to the May Family Ranch
right next to heaven...

Located just off of the Salmon River Scenic Byway (Highway 75), midway between the beautiful
Stanley Basin and the rustic community of Challis in what is known as the Idaho Primitive Area

Family Reunions and Retreats

May Family Ranch is an ideal location for your family reunion, retreat, camping, hunting or fishing trip. We can easily accommodate from 1 to 100+ persons. We are in one of the premier recreational and hunting/fishing areas in Idaho. The mountains surrounding us have numerous hiking, biking, & ATV trails. Popular with visitors are the old mining towns, Challis’ 9-hole golf course, museums, and the unmatched beauty of our surroundings.

During the summer, the Salmon River is alive with rafts and kayaks. The river, as well as surrounding lakes and streams, offer great trout, salmon, and steelhead fishing. Nearby Redfish Lake is the local venue for motorized river craft and recreational water equipment of all types. There are several hot pools in the river to enjoy when the water level is right.

The Ranch is open year-round. We offer a variety of accommodations. We have 8-person family cabins, private loft rooms, a bunkhouse that sleeps 26, private rooms with baths, as well as many tent spaces and RV hookups. Guests have access to all amenities including kitchens, dining areas, fire pits, and sports area at no additional cost. Bed and Breakfast is an option if you’re looking for a full service experience. Weekly and monthly rentals are also available.

THE RANCH IS FOR SALE -- It’s painful to even think of leaving here, but our advancing ages have dictated that we turn the reins over to someone younger. If you or anyone you know might be interested in purchasing the Ranch, please contact us through this website on the ‘Contact Us’ page. We will be happy to discuss details then.

Don't worry. You can book your future stay or reunion here with confidence. We will make sure that any future bookings are honored if we sell. Thanks!

We look forward to hosting you!
