Our goal is to serve your family with hospitality and fun!  We offer a range of family friendly activities during the summer and access to beautiful hiking and biking trails year round.  We are just a short drive away from the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park.  Looking for some ancient artifacts? Visit the Dinosaur Experience just up the road!

Pool Hours

Our pool is open seasonally from Memorial Day until Labor Day.  Daily hours are matching our store hours.


We offer Firewood for sale in our general store.  Our local fire district will advise of any current fire bans and if there is a fire ban in place we will notify our guests.  For the most part we are exempt from most fire bans because we are in a highly landscaped terrain with designated fire pits and local water sources.

Check-In and Check-Out Times

Our check-in time is 2:00 pm daily.  The check-out time is 11:00 am.  It is possible to get extensions on a case-by-case evaluation - subject to site availability and staffing.  Please contact the front desk for any extensions.
