King’s Saddlery and Ropes

King’s Saddlery is a must stop. Not only do they have great merchandise. But the museum in the back is a must see too.

The King saddlery legacy began with Don King in 1946. Don was the first to create the Sheridan flower style of leather carving. A style that has influenced leather workers all over the world. In the late 1960s, ropes were added to the King’s inventory. Next thing they knew, the store became world-renowned for those, too. The operation is still owned and operated by the King family.

We stayed at the Sheridan / Big Horn Mountains KOA Journey campground. We had a wonderful two-room cabin. The campground was well shaded and quite. It sits on a small creek. Where you can fish. The RV sites were big. They had the longest pull-troughs I have ever seen.

Our other recommendation is The Sheridan Inn. The Sheridan Inn was built by Buffalo Bill Cody. He use to audition acts on the lawn in front of the building. The hotel was almost demolished. But the town of Sheridan would not hear of it. It was bought and remodeled not long ago. And has proven to be worth the efforts.

We did not stay at the inn. But it’s grounds and interior were magnificent. And a must see and stay. We will be defiantly staying there on our next trip to Sheridan, Wyoming. Learn more in our Sheridan travel guide video: Click Here
