Badger Creek  Ranch is family owned and operated working ranch. We take a holistic approach to ranching and land stewardship. from having good daily practices by living “off the grid”, providing locally sourced meals to our guests and healthy, humanely raised meat to our customers and by living in harmony with nature.  Even though we are a working cattle ranch, we never forget you are on vacation! There is spectacular fly fishing nearby, as well as hiking, white water rafting and mountain biking. If you’d rather just relax, we offer non rider packages, Eco Ranch packages, glamping and camping.

Our ranch is located in Colorado’s Badger Creek Basin at approximately 9,000 feet, The area is rich in history, from the Ute Indians to the Spanish Conquistadors, to the pioneers, miners and cowboys of the old West. This is a land of countless tales, sweeping skies, endless sights, and abundant wildlife.

Badger Creek Ranch borders the San Isabel National Forest and Pike National Forest, with spectacular views of the Collegiate Peaks and the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. Our ranch is a photographer’s dream, with beautiful landscapes and plentiful wildlife. There are many opportunities to see bear, mule deer, elk, antelope, mountain sheep, and coyote.
