Plan Your Adventure --

See what you’re made of by tackling the Cowabunga rope swing, flying high across the zipline, or go Man From Snowy River on horseback, but either way you’re in for a great time. Lucky 7 Ranch is all about bringing friends and families together to make memories that last a lifetime.

The Ranch was founded by Russel and Patricia Walter and is here today as part of their legacy. Having moved from Las Vegas and having 5 children “Lucky 7” was a fitting name. Generations have both worked the ranch and spent leisure time enjoying this beautiful place. The ranch consists of several hundred acres located on the Paunsaugunt Cliffs Plateau with several ponds and the Sevier River running through it. The ranch elevation is 6800 – 7000 feet. Thus, be prepared for cool temperatures, however, the afternoons warm up and may require sun block. It is a working ranch with Charolais Cattle being raised on the ranch.

The ranch is located on Highway 89 approximately 2 miles north of Hatch, Utah.(Download Printable Map) The entrance is at mile marker #119 on Highway 89. There is a real estate sales office and Paunsaugunt Cliffs signage at the turnoff point. Cross the bridge staying right to the home by the big green shop.

There is a large grass area and pavilion that is able to accommodate large groups. Be prepared to bring your own tents and pitch them in the designated area. In addition, there are several RV spots and parking areas. There is a new restroom facility with mens and womens restrooms and showers. Under the pavilion there is some commercial cooking equipment with a double sink, four burners, a flat grill for pancakes and a barbeque for grill for steaks and hamburgers. There are four large picnic tables. There is a dumpster close by for garbage. All homes are occupied by the ranch owners.

There is a large pond for swimming and water activities with a rope swing and zipline. The water is clear and it will take your breath away because of cool water temperature and high elevation. The Sevier River also runs through the ranch and tubing down the river can be done during the spring. No youth are allowed at the river or the ponds unsupervised. There is no lifeguard or adult supervision provided by the Lucky 7 Ranch and it is the responsibility of the group to provide supervision for any water activities. Life Jackets are required at all times for canoeing and water activities for individuals under 18.
