A great girls getaway for my Sister's 60th Birthday. We fished and rode horses and ate too much of Karen's gourmet cooking. Five of us were able to stay in the beautifully appointed Homestead Cabin. We enjoyed our cocktails in front of a crackling fire and fell asleep listening to the river rushing past. A great escape! Travis and Casey... More

I was looking to take my family (3 teenage boys) to a Guest Ranch that was located close to Denver and could accommodate a partial week stay. I found North Fork Ranch and could not have been happier with the choice. We all had a fabulous time and it far exceeded my expectations. NF is privately owned and operated and... More

Our family of four (including a 10 year old and 7 year old) booked a relatively last minute vacation at the ranch for the five days that were available. It was perfect. Lodging (in Stonehenge), every meal and the wonderful staff who cooked, served and joined us (one better than the next, and I wish I had bought the cookbook... More

Just coming back from an amazing week at North Fork with my husband and three kids (twins 8 and oldest 11). I had done extensive research online (Top 50 luxury dude ranches and tripadvisor) but honestly wasn't exactly sure what to expect. While we were only there for a week, I feel like I have been away for a month... More

Four generations of our family (ages 3 to 87) gathered at North Fork Ranch for a week in July, 2013. We flew in from all parts of the country/world to share the experience and be together. The Ranch, the accommodations, the food (and the family style dining), the staff, the owners, the activities (rafting the Arkansas River, riding horses every... More

My daughter and I stayed at North Fork Ranch last week and had an exceptional experience. The ranch is beautiful- set in a valley with a river running through the property. The food was fantastic and the staff could not have been more kind and attentive. We rode horses, shot skeet, and fished. I recommend this ranch highly for anyone... More

Dude ranch great for families of all ages. The owners and staff really help customize your vacation experience to your riding level, interests, and food preferences/needs. I felt very safe with children (ours age 9 & 12) and our limited riding experience. Best service and food I have ever had at an all inclusive resort, the whole experience was amazing... More

To say that this incredibly special property in one of the most gorgeous settings ever imagined is IMMACULATE is an understatement. From the guest buildings to the horse corrals to the benches thoughtfully dotted along the carefully trimmed creekside banks of a screamingly fishy section of the north fork of the south Platte river, North Fork Ranch is Pristine.

Family week (6 adults) was one of the best vacation weeks I have ever experienced. A wonderderful "special birthday" celebration for me. Low key, but continuosly engaged if desired; active, but plenty of choices for quiet times. Fishing, zip lining, horses, hiking, white water rafting . . . Food was delicious and always available. Hosts and staff were magnificent. This... More
