Hidden away in a Montana mountain wilderness, the Bison Quest camp of two authentic log cabins, Lakota Sioux tipis, and a native American style sweatlodge is surrounded by the sacred presence of our buffalo herd on Wild Echo Bison Reserve. Available for private retreats, family reunions, unusual weddings, unique family vacations, and more, Wild Echo Bison Reserve is a place to experience the peace and the healing that only the wild world can give us.
We offer two types of unique vacation experiences on our wind and solar powered bison reserve. For a private vacation, where you are our only guests while here, try our Bison and Wildlife Adventure Vacation. Live in a log cabin, relax in a Lakota Sioux tipi, and experience the ancient rites of the sweatlodge while surrounded by a powerful bison herd in the magnificent Montana wilderness. Learn about the natural history of this awe-inspiring animal and participate in a bison behavioral study with our wildlife biologists. Enjoy the solitude or fill your days with activities like whitewater rafting, horseback riding, hiking, or participating in wildlife studies and eco projects alongside our biologists. We are not a 'dude ranch or typical resort' where you will spend your entire vacation and meals with strangers. Here, you are the private guests of internationally known wildlife biologists on the Wild Echo Bison Reserve shared only with wildlife, blue Montana skies and the Wild Echo bison herd.
But for those of you (singles or groups) who want something different, who want to actually study wildlife, who wish to make the "wild" world a little better while learning about it, who want to be part of something bigger, then our Bison Quest Wildlife Internship Week is for you. To teach guests about wildlife, only 4-8 individuals are allowed on Wild Echo Bison Reserve for each Wildlife Internship Week. Some of the projects guests can chose from are to improve wildlife habitat on the reserve, others are bird and mammal studies where guests work alongside the professional wildlife biologists. Scheduled weeks are for singles and couples to meet like-minded folks, while private groups of families or friends can schedule their own “internship week”. And, after our 3 day work “week”, we whisk you off for a complimentary overnight trip to Yellowstone National Park.
So, if you’re the adventurous sort who wants more than a "typical vacation”, if you’re curious and love new experiences and wild things, then come and join us for a Bison Quest Wildlife Vacation and let the wilderness heal you.
