Badger Creek Cattle and Guest Ranch offers the western adventure vacation of a lifetime!  Enjoy horseback riding through beautiful landscape just for fun, or ride out with our cowboy crew to check fence, doctor and sort cattle.  Join us for a cattle drive as we move the herd through summer grazing.  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 and mountain biking if you choose.  If you’d rather just relax, you can’t beat the view from the front porch.

Our working cattle 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. Even the wild flowers are spectacular! Though it’s hard to take your eyes away from the enormous vistas, if you glance down from time to time you may find an ancient arrowhead or catch a glimmer of gold.

A sturdy horse will become your new best friend as you cover miles of mesas and ride the open range. Sleep in our comfortable bunkhouse after a traditional day of ranch life but don’t forget to check out the endless stars in our Colorado Rocky Mountain skies. A breathtaking view and a lifelong memory are never more than a horse step away.

Badger Creek Ranch is also our home.  Like many before us, we traveled west to find our American dream. Now that we have found it we would be honored to share it with you.  We invite you to “disconnect” from your daily life, reconnect with nature, create new life experiences and memories that will last a lifetime!

Two of the bedrooms have a queen size bed, double bed, and private bath, and one bedroom has a queen size bed and shared bath. Our lodge features comfortable rooms with private baths. We also have our Cowboy platform wall tent which has a double bed and access to the shared bath.
Recreation Overview
In addition to horseback riding and cattle work, you may want to explore the area's varied geography on foot or by bicycle. Pan for gold, swim or fish in the creek, or hike down the canyon and relax on a rock in the sun. Explore the many Ute Indian sites from the dramatic Buffalo Jump to the sacred Vision Quest site, search for arrowheads, artifacts, and opals. You may want to try your hand at learning to rope, pitch a game of horseshoes with a friend, or put your feet up and read a book.
Dining Overview
Delicious meals are prepared three times a day. A hot ranch-style breakfast will get you energized for the day's ride. Lunch may either be served in the lodge, or packed and served out of a saddlebag on the open range. Return to a hearty, ranch-style dinner at the end of the day served family-style in the lodge. Be sure to save room for our tempting desserts!
