Naard Creek Ranch

The Best of Both Worlds
Located West of the Historic Killdeer Mountains
in the heart of the North Dakota Badlands

Naard Creek Ranch is rich in ranching and rodeo heritage. The creek that runs through the ranch is named after an old-time cowboy, Wilse Naard, who came to the North Dakota Badlands on a a cattle drive from Texas. He arrived in the late 1800's and built a cabin near the creek. Not much else is known about Wilse Naard except that he left his namesake to the creek. The Olsons homesteaded on Naard Creek in 1900. Third and fourth generations of this family still own and operate the ranch.

Naard Creek Ranch is a treasure of nature. This cattle ranch is located in the beautiful Badlands with the magnificent backdrop of the Killdeer Mountains, all of which is situated in remote southwest North Dakota.

We welcome you to stay with us for a relaxing slower paced lifestyle. Our cabin is a two bedroom lodge equipped with modern conveniences for your comfort, but located in a breath-taking setting. You can spend time by yourself getting back to nature, or come along with us on guided events or partake in the everyday workings of the ranch. There are so many things to do and see, you will want to return again and again.
