Wind River Ranch is a Christian Family Dude Ranch located seven miles south of beautiful Estes Park, CO. For over 80 years, guests have enjoyed the jaw-dropping beauty of Wind River Ranch. The ranch is perfectly placed between the majestic Longs Peak (14,259′) just beyond our front gate and the Twin Sisters Mountain range as our back yard. God’s beautiful creation surrounds you; from the soaring spires of Rocky Mountain National Park to gentle meadows blanketed with wildflowers. Wind River Ranch is the ideal spot for a summer vacation, far away from the heat and busyness of life. At Wind River Ranch, you can be as busy as you want to be. Our guests enjoy our daily horseback rides through the scenic Rocky Mountain National Park, fly fishing in our stocked pond and guided trips on one of the many streams and rivers in the area, climbing wall and dual 550 foot zip lines, family challenge course, basketball, disc golf, and dozens of other family friendly activities. Of course, after a full day of fun, nothing beats a soak in our heated pool and hot tub. Wind River Ranch has something for all ages. We provide daily activities in the morning for the little kids in our fantastic nursery (babies – 2), the children (3 – 7), the tweens (8 -12), and the teens (13 and up) led by staff that are handpicked for their passion and ability for working with these age groups. All kids programs are optional, but the kids and teens will be ready to join the staff and their new friends each day. We also offer babysitting for the little ones in the afternoon during horse rides at no extra cost. Many of our guests return year after year because of the activities, the scenery, the rustically elegant cabins, the food, and the service; but mostly they return for our staff. We spend the entire off-season painstakingly selecting each individual to serve at Wind River Ranch. Our staff is composed of college-aged students from all over the country and are the kind of young people you want your children to emulate. Quality service is a way of life at Wind River Ranch. Your meals are provided by our executive chef and kitchen staff, your cabins are cleaned daily by our housekeepers, and our staff is available to help make your week at Wind River Ranch the best week of the year.
