The Middle Fork Lounge continues to be a favorite meeting place at the end of an exciting day at Three Forks Ranch. Hand-carved, American cherry walls envelope you with an atmosphere of elegance. The perfect place to enjoy a libation and tell lies about the fish you caught – or the one that got away.
Right away, the 17′ x 7′ oil painting by great Western artist Wayne Cooper behind the bar will catch your eye. Encompassing the entire wall, this mural depicts how life might have been in the early 1850s. The Ute Indian village setting in the river bottom next to the Middle Fork of the Little Snake River reflects how the original inhabitants of this land might have prepared for a raid on neighboring tribes or settlers. If you look closely at this epic work of art, all of the major mountain peaks within Three Forks Ranch can be identified.
