Description

Tour a 1920's-era dude ranch for a taste of early homesteading and tourism. Buildings are open for tours during the summer. Otherwise, visitors may view the exteriors of the buildings and the grounds.

Open for tours daily through September 7, from 10:30 am - 4:30 pm.
The site can be visited year-round. However, there is no access to the interior of the buildings in the winter.

On the Road: On the west side of Trail Ridge Road/US Highway 34, about seven miles north of the Grand Lake Entrance Station. The lodge buildings are reached by a half-mile walkway from the parking lot. A walking path connects the various buildings.

Family Friendly: What makes it good for families?
