This was closed for winter However I did walk the grounds and see the animals and I spoke to a few employees who explained that this is a working ranch museum where in the open season everyone dresses in period clothing and performs the daily tasks of running a ranch just like it was done in the 1800's. I plan... More

We attended a wedding here. Parking was a problem. Looked like an interesting place to visit. I will come back.

We enjoy going in the evenings and walking on the trails. There are interesting buildings and things to look at. We have never gone when the actors and things are all happening. Go when it is quiet and enjoy the peaceful scenery.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The homes were nicely furnished and the guides gave interesting information and background stories. However, there was not as much going on there as there could be. I've been to other living history museums which had the feel of a functioning town with commerce and industry going on, and the people in character. The guides at Rock Ledge Ranch dressed... More

Especially great for kids but nice for all ages. Includes animals, craftspeople, homes from several time periods, from the one-room homestead to several decades later.

I would spend my money else where unless you really get into looking at old places and history. Not really worth it to me

Very small park that is easily overlooked. Located at the convergence of the entrance of the Garden of the Gods, the Nature and visitor center and the Historic park Ranch. Volunteers are dressed to fit the time period from Ute and Plaines Indians, homesteaders, farmers and trades people. The docent share the stories for the peoples and their hardships. Nice... More

We had a great 4th of July at Rock Ledge Ranch National Historic Site! There were lots of activities for kids and adults alike....It was a nice way to combine some history lessons with fun family fun. The bands were also great and added a patriotic flair to the whole day.

We went to Rock Ledge Ranch for their special 4th of July Festival. It was outstanding, with an encampment of Revolutionary War soldiers, speeches by historical figures, and great farm attractions such as frontier cabin, Native American sites, and the historic homes on the site. Food they had this day was very good. I even got to save a place... More
