Owners & Management

Unsurpassed. Western hospitality.

For generations, those of us who call the Western United States home have embraced hospitality as how you conducted yourself in life and in business. At Bighorn River Lodge, you’ll experience a culture of hospitality, fair play, loyalty, and respect for each other and the land.

Your hosts, the Rolph family.

In April of 2007, Dee and Darrell Rolph along with their son Cody bought the Bighorn River Lodge from the previous owners and founders, Phil and Patty Gonzalez. With a lifelong shared passion for fly fishing, they had a vision to renovate the existing lodge and create a location where they, as well as others, could enjoy the world class fishing of the Bighorn River.

With a lot of hard work from Cody and a dedicated staff, the Bighorn River Lodge has become THE premier lodge on the Bighorn River.

Bighorn River Lodge will welcome you with its hosts, the Rolph Family.
