I was invited to go on a trout fishing trip with a friend. This is a first class operation from the "get go". Greta fishing! Lots of big fish. Mouth watering meals with many game entres. First rate service everywhere. they have thought of everything.

Because about the only delivery of five-star poshness at VPR may come with the one-price-fits-most tariff. High, yes, but this place is unique unto itself. American West? In spades. With nearly 600,000 acres of snowy mountains, verdant vegas, tall pines at your disposal and wild life galore: herds of bison, elk, mule deer, pronghorn plus major birding ops including the... More

The Elk Rut photo tour was perfect until the last day when lunch was interrupted with a presentation by the staff on the expected tipping rates. We were told it was expected that we would pay 10 - 15% of the total cost of the tour ($2,995) for the food service and housekeeping staff gratuity as well as 10 -... More

4 of us spent 3 nights in early August. The food and service was excellent. We road horses two days and the loops were pretty and some wildlife was spotted. Fishing is the main summer activity but we are not big fishermen. We hiked some and shot sporting clays. Overall a fun visit.

A 3 night stay at Costilla Lodge left me breathless, and not because it was at 10,000 feet! The cuisine was some of the best to be served in the civilized world, and the service left us feeling like we were with family. It is a must stay destination for a group of up to 16 and is worth every... More

Just left the Ranch after a 3 night stay at Costilla Lodge. The breakfast chef, Charlie, made us great food and made us laugh. The evening chef, Matt, provided us with gourmet food, like lamb chops, bison filet oscar, etc. The entire staff was very personable and helped us in any way they could. We used two fishing guides, Dave... More

Vermejo Park Ranch is even better than I imagined. The scenery is equal to a national park. I spent three days hiking and exploring the high country of Vermejo Park. My guide, James Reedy, was excellent and very accommodating of my requests. One of the great things about visiting Vermejo Park is you have a personal guide all to yourself.... More

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

VermejoParkRanch, Public Relations Manager at Vermejo Park Ranch, responded to this review

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
