Are you in the midst of planning a wedding for the coming year or beyond?

If so, you’ll definitely want to investigate the enchantment that our outdoor wedding venue at Mackay Bar Ranch has produced among brides, grooms and their wedding parties!

It’s why we’re rated by so many of our guests as the BEST outdoor wedding venue in Idaho.   Not only are we located on the shores of the magical Salmon River, but we are located in one of the largest wilderness areas in Idaho, the Frank Church Wilderness.  Our wedding venue with outdoor ceremonies creates an unforgettable experience for all present.

What sets us apart from the rest (beyond our impeccable scenery) is that Mackay Bar Ranch personally provides all the chairs, tables, linens, table decor, string lighting, PA system, wedding cake as well as all meals and lodging for your guests. The 26 mile jet boat ride to/from the Ranch is also a unique “perk” for your wedding party and guests! Spend 3 to 4 days and 2 to 3 nights soaking in a magical, unique, private setting all in Your Own Private Idaho. This is one of the most unique destination wedding venues in Idaho – your guests (as well as you and your loved one) will never forget the memories created.

Mackay Bar Ranch is located 26 miles upriver from Vinegar Creek near Riggins Idaho.  We’ve been hosting numerous weddings and guest reviews have been a feather in our cap.    Read our Trip Advisor reviews.
