What an amazing fishing trip. This was my third trip to Mackay Bar and loved every minute of it. Buck and Joni are awesome hosts. The food is excellent, accommodations are clean and comfortable, and the ranch location is beautiful. Thank you again for another great year!! Be back soon.
Great accommodations, great food, great people
We had a great time at Mackay Bar. From the time we got there we felt at home. Stayed in nice rooms, had great food, good company. The lodge always had a fire going and was cozy. I highly recommend staying here for hunting, fishing, or even just a getaway to a remote spot in the mountains. Views are incredible!
Exceptional in every way.
Buck and Joni were born to do exactly what they're doing by running Mackay Bar Outfitters. They're attentive and driven to make your trip more than you came hoping for and they make you feel like and old friend. Great food, incredible boats and guides and the best spot for a lodge on the river. We had a group of 24 and every single one of us had a blast.
Multi Generation Family Adventure
We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Mackay Bar! From the moment we were met at Vinegar Creek Boat launch we were treated like family and launched into our weekend adventure. We enjoyed fishing, horseback riding, hiking, swimming, bridge jumping, trips to Buckskin Bill's for beer and ice cream (try the Porter Float), exciting jet boat rides and delicious home cooked meals.

Great Venue for a wedding
Close friends were married here in early May 2014. It was just perfection. The owners and staff did everything within there power to make sure we (14 people) were happy and satisfied at all times. Buck and his family work so hard they seem to never stop moving. The cabins are clean comfortable and secure. The grounds are very well kept. The food is fantastic. The runway is in good shape with plenty of room for parking. The resorts jets boats are in great condition and are expertly piloted. (Continue Review)
Joni and Buck are excellent hosts to their ranch. Suzie, Jason and Aubry and Ky were absolute pleasures and not a task they could not accomplish readily and cheerfully. The Jetboat ride is exciting with the realization of mother natures forces of water, absolutely spell binding. Buck Captains the Jetboat and wild water with the skill and judgement of a well seasoned Seaman. His "eagle eye" was quick to point out the natural inhabitants to the nearby mountains (Continue review)
