North Fork Ranch offers something to please every interest. Our summer Dude Ranch package provides activities for families of all ages. Join us in the corral and meet one of our terrific horses that is sure to take care of you whether you choose a full day, lunch, brunch, bushwhacking or loping ride. So many other options to fill your days such as: whitewater rafting, hiking in spectacular alpine meadows, bow & arrow, target shooting and zip line tours. After a busy day, refresh in our heated pool or hot tubs along side the river and let’s not forget to enjoy a therapeutic massage. The aroma of bread baking and cookies straight from the oven will certainly entice your appetite. Guests boast about our dining with a gourmet flare! Your day is not finished when the sun goes down; enjoy fun filled evenings with campfire & cowboy ballads, hayride, square dance, & an authentic Mountain Man! So many options; don’t forget to sit back, relax and rejuvenate on your front porch counting stars or enjoy a glass of wine in front of a crackling fire in your cozy cabin. You too have discovered a secret hideaway. Home of the newest addition to the Colorado Orvis Endorsed Lodge Program. Our diverse program, intimate size and personal attention set us apart from being just a fishing lodge. Settle in, you’ll quickly realize there is a magic here, a place that feels as good as home.

Guest Comments

” Dean and Karen have established an ambiance with your personality that is translated into all of your help that makes each visitor feel important, wanted, and at ease. The food was wonderful, the special touches in the accommodations worthy of five star rank, the fishing the best in the West, and the reason for Dude Ranches – horses- truly outstanding!” – Paul Phillips

“I’ve just returned home from the best vacation I’ve had in years. I wasn’t sure what to expect finding North Fork on the internet but I must say it was more than I could have imagined. Dean, Karen, and Kids have built the most beautiful home for their guests. What a beautiful location and what a wonderful staff. I’ll be back next year and many years to come.” – Cheryl Crawford

“As always, we enjoyed our stay with you again this year. Each year we return, we marvel at your warm welcome…our family away from home, the constant improvements you make…you have created a comforting oasis in those beautiful mountains…such a joy to become absorbed in the quieter, slower pace of life. We always want to stay another day, another week and return another year! Thank you…again…” – Edi and Larry

“We have just returned from the holiday of a lifetime at the North Fork Ranch. Our expectations were greatly exceeded on ALL fronts: accommodation, activities, locations, hospitality etc etc etc. We really cannot recommend the North Fork Ranch highly enough and would be more than happy to speak with anybody contemplating taking their holiday at this amazing place (or should we keep it quiet?). All our love to Dean, Karen, their family and the excellent staff at NFR, see you again soon.” – Jim & Georgina Howdle

“We didn’t know what to expect because we have never been on this sort of vacation before. We got more than we could have ever expected. The May family and their staff went above and beyond to make sure our week stay was the best. (we are going to try and may it back every year) Thanks again for a great time.” – Bill Strader & Cindy Emory
