Welcome to the UX Ranch

The Stovall UX Ranch offers you a ‘real west’ experience.  The tradition of 120 years of the ranching way of life continues on the historic ‘Old Stenger’ ranch.

Ranch owners, John and Darlene Stovall
have been ranching here for  50 years. They raised registered Limousin cattle, quarter horses and six children. They continue to live at the ranch headquarters. Currently, three of the children, Doug, Jinx and Jonalyn, are involved in the day-to-day ranch operations. The other 3 children, Jon, Mark and Jennifer come home as often as possible and for special ranch projects including the annual Cattle Drive.

The UX Ranch is located on the eastern edge of the Black Hills of South Dakota, just 5 miles east of Hermosa.  This is a central location and within 15 to 35 minutes of all the major Black Hills attractions, including Sturgis. The ranch is surrounded by miles of pasture land, hay fields, foothills and picturesque vistas with horses, cattle and all types of native wildlife.

In addition to Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments, the Black Hills have hundreds of miles of trout streams, secluded hiking and biking trails and wonderful mountain lakes.  Custer State Park and the UX Ranch forest service permit offers some of the best trail riding for you and your horses. Have you always wanted to help move cattle? We are able to offer you one day ‘mini’ Cattle Drives, but only if you bring your own horse.

We are offering Horse Camping this year for the first time. There is plenty of parking for your rig, stay in our comfortable bunk houses or at the 4 RV stations. Your horses will be near by in the barn stalls or in open corrals.

Our goal is to make your visit to western South Dakota a terrific memory and give you a chance to experience the ‘Ranch lifestyle’ we love and appreciate each day.
