Been going there for 9 years and always stay at the Ponderosa. We actually have a ranch with about 1/2 the size of land but love the high elevation and getting away from cattle. I am not sure about the old owners comings and goings but with the new ones you can't rent while he and his group are visiting.... More

This was the perfect area for a mother/daughter trip where hiking and exploring were top priorities. The cabin was great--and several deer wandered up to visit each evening. The location is beautiful with the river and cliff views. There is a heated pool and all the cabins are configured so there is quiet for all. Within the area are local... More

I have been coming to Corkins' Lodge with my family for over 50 years. During that time, we have probably rented a cabin 25 times for at least an overnight stay. Just returned from our latest stay and while still nice, this may be our last visit. When Phil and Fran Corkin owned the place, you used to be able... More

We have been annual visitors to Corkins for a big part of my life but sadly have decided to end the tradition. In reading the reviews I am surprised to not see any complaints regarding the fishing. Perhaps many visitors are just content to enjoy the scenery and solitude but at $275.00 a night for an 80 year old cabin... More

Been heading to Corkins almost every year since around 2000. The first time there began with this unforgettable moment when my friend tapped me on the shoulder, pointed off toward the 2000ft tall Brazos Cliffs and said "That's where we're going." (Jaw drops). Philo - who I've been told was there since she was a girl - welcomes visitors each... More

We go every year. As far as day trips there are tons of them but we hardly leave Corkin's property. Husband fishes and I walk. It is like being on a honeymoon after 34 years of marriage. No kids for us. My children are always asking if I'll take a grand and our answer always is "well maybe when were... More

Clean Cabins, that already have things you'll need like clean bedding, cookware,BBQ grill, paper towels ect. They have a stocked lake( that has a beautiful view by the way) river near by for even more fishing. Playground, pool and game-room helps make this mountain retreat even more amazing. Our family takes advantage of the free board game rentals in the... More

Many people have been coming to Corkins Lodge for decades. After visiting the rustic mountain retreat outside of Chama, New Mexico, I can see why. The scenery is spectacular, the wildlife is abundant and the cabins are comfortable and cozy. The folks at Corkins Lodge are so accustomed to the returning regulars, however, that they don't give the uninitiated traveler... More
