Where are we going today?

Winding River Resort near Grand Lake, Colorado is more than just a place to pitch your tent - it's a place filled with activities for the whole family to enjoy the whole year round!

Bordering the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapahoe National Forest, this mountain setting is perfect for all the activities you can enjoy, from horseback riding, hiking out in the wilderness and snowmobiling. 

For those water sport loving families, there are nearby lakes where you can enjoy a host of fishing and water sports, including boating.

During the day the kids will love the sweet animal farm and sleigh and carriage museum - perhaps even enjoy a hayride - before settling down in front of the open fire in the evening to roast marshmallows!  (Make sure you learn a good repertoire of campfire songs before you arrive!)

The RV park itself offers cozy cabins as well as spacious RV spots and tent sites to call home, and a camp store where you can stock up on all your fishing and camping supplies.

They even have spots if you want to bring your own horse!  The WHOLE family can really travel here!

The area is teeming with beautiful wildlife too, so why not sit back, put your feet up with a good book and see what wildlife you can spot around you.  There are also hiking trails directly from your campsite or cabin into the surrounding National Forests.  If nature doesn't turn up on your doorstep, you can go to theirs!

A nature and activity filled campground that is very kid friendly!

    Really like tent camping here. The tent sites are spacious and there is quite a bit to do around the "resort". Really enjoyed Cowboy Church on Sunday morning.
