BUFFALO GAP GUEST RANCH
Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch is rustic guest ranch, bar, steakhouse, and venue in the scenic badlands of western North Dakota. In addition to the over 300 acres of festival campground the ranch offers a limited number of full RV hookups as well.
Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch strikes a balance between accessibility and remoteness. Conveniently located off Interstate-94 and just five minutes from historic town of Medora, getting to the ranch couldn’t be easier. That said, visitors to the ranch celebrate the off-the-beaten charm and wide-open sky found only at places like the Buffalo Gap Ranch.

ENTREC & THE BIG FLAG
At our first concert in June, we had a vision of the US Flag being portrayed in a respectful manner that attendees would remember forever. We contacted ENTREC Cranes and Heavy Haul INC. in Dickinson and without any hesitation whatsoever, they brought in their 100 ton unit and it remained at Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch the entire weekend. The 20’X30′ American Flag hoisted 300′ in the air was breathtaking against the summer sky and the greenery of the North Dakota badlands.
ENTREC Cranes and Heavy Haul will be providing another impressive machine to honor the most beautiful banner on earth at The Real American Jam. ENTREC’s commitment to our goal is mutual. The Fallen Soldiers of North Dakota, The Guardians Foundation and The Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch extends our sincerest appreciation to the women and men of ENTREC Cranes and Heavy Haul Inc. of Dickinson, ND.
Shirley and Larry Fettig are pictured here in front of the beautiful US Flag at the June concert. Their son Spc Jon Fettig was the first North Dakota Army National Guard soldier killed in battle since the Korean War. He served with a Dickinson-based engineering unit but had volunteered to fill a vacancy on the Bismarck-based 957th Multi-Role Bridge Company.
