Spanning 6,700 acres over a wild, diverse landscape, Victory Ranch offers the best of mountainous terrain, rushing waters and wide-open skies — with all the comforts of a private, four-season vacation destination. Below, find five reasons why life at the Ranch feels like you’re amid your very own national park.
1. Unparalleled stargazing every night
Out in the backcountry — absent of light pollution, with no buildings for miles — you’ll find extraordinary views of the night sky. Some people have to drive hours to get a glimpse of the Milky Way in all its glory. The Ranch frames it every night.
2. Protected land and strategic conservation initiatives
Just like the National Park Service, we want members, guests and native wildlife to thrive on this land for generations to come. The Conservancy at Victory Ranch is dedicated to conservation, restoration and protection through year-round programs. These include joining forces with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to protect the Columbia Spotted Frog and Pacific Pollination to study the declining honeybee population.
3. Rare views of all kinds of wild animals
Since 4,000 acres of Victory Ranch is completely untouched land, it’s a prime habitat for small creatures and magnificent beasts. Some of the wild animals you might encounter include Bald Eagles, porcupine, moose, bobcats and weasels.
4. Natural freshwater sources
Four miles of the Upper Provo run through Victory Ranch while Stony Lake provides a serene waterside retreat. Here, members are welcome to go swimming, fly fishing, stand-up paddleboarding and more to experience the best of both river and water adventures — which you can’t often miss out on in national parks.
5. A sense of community
While camping at a national park, you get the opportunity to meet people from all over the country, and maybe even the world. Victory Ranch — by way of The Barn, The Freestone Lodge and more — fosters an unrivaled sense of community with other members and guests (with all the luxuries you miss out on at communal campsites).
