We stayed at the ranch as participants in a newly developed Nature Tourism package. At the same time, other family members were part of the Elk Rut & Aspen Nature Tour. Vermejo Park Ranch has long been noted for its hunting and fishing tours. They are expanding into photography and nature tours, birding, even cooking classes - all taking advantage... More

Vermejo Park Ranch, in years past, has been the ultimate destination for fishermen, wildlife observation, horseback riding, hunting, & relaxation. The food is still exquisite, and the bartenders excellent. I stayed in one of the suites across from the main house, it was fine. The other suites in the area are more plush (fireplaces, etc). The draught, over the last... More

It's so great to have return guests and thank you for the honest feedback. We too have been frustrated by the lack of moisture and with three years of little-to-no snow pack and below average rainfall, the landscape has indeed suffered! I'm sorry for your unfortunate and disappointing June trip. Vermejo is so pleased (and rather shocked!) to announce that... More

Joined our son on his bear hunt. As always we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The food was outstanding this trip and service was excellent. Just to comment on a previous review about the accommodations, the cottages were built on the ranch in the early 1900's. All have been remodeled and renovated to modern standards while keeping true to their original... More

Although a bit tardy, Vermejo wants to thank you for your support and positive comments! We are gearing up for another (and earlier!) bear hunt in just a few short days. We look forward to hopefully hosting you again! More

I just completed my 6th stay at Vermejo! The ranch is stunningly beautiful! Ted Turner returned the Ranch to its natural state...no fencing and beautiful grassland meadows filled with wildlife surrounded by stunning mountain views. This trip I saw literally hundreds of cow elk and their calves as well as three gorgeous bull elk in velvet, several eagles, many deer,... More

My first trip to VPR was back in 2008 when I was high bidder for a turkey hunt donated by VPR to the Wild Turkey Federation. Upon arrival I was amazed at the scenery. It is such a beautiful place. On my turkey hunt I took 2 turkeys and spent my afternoon's fishing. In 3 afternoon's of fishing in mid... More

We have stayed and fished at Vermejo many times and it keeps getting better. Ted Turner has made this ranch more like a National Park, with elk, buffalo, bear, deer, and we even saw a mountain lion. Fishing is always good and of course the scenery is gorgeous. This trip we stayed in Costilla Lodge for the first time. It... More

Unquestionably one of the most incredible scenic ranches in the United States. For an Orvis endorsed property the accommodations are below that of a Holiday Inn Express. If you are an avid big game hunter this is one of the premier places for a trophy. They need to improve the accommodations to market this as a year around property and... More

Thank you for your contribution! You are right- in the past Vermejo Park Ranch (VPR) has operated solely as a hunting and fishing retreat designed for those that were more interested in spending time in our great outdoors than in their rooms, and because of this, forgave our sub-par accommodations. In the last few years VPR has recognized this and... More

We didn't really know what to expect when we booked three nights at Vermejo Park Ranch but liked it so much, we stayed an extra night. Most of the guests at this Ted Turner property were there to fish. We were there to enjoy the birds and animals and the awe inspiring views. We went out every day with a... More
