We visited clear creek last summer. It is exactly as they advertise: horses are well cared for and easy, food is good, rooms are super clean, not luxurious at all, but immaculate. Look at the high ratings based on the experience that the place provides; it's not the ritz. However, we visited with our two little girls (5 and 7)... More

This was the third Dude Ranch that I've been to and it was not of the same caliber as the others. Our meals tasted like canned and frozen institutional food with very little fresh produce. In additional to that most of the guests ended up with some digestive issues. I'm not sure if it was the food or something in... More

It was a nice, quaint, and well located ranch. The horses were great, the wranglers were willing to help, and the food was excellent. However, throughout the lengths of the stay our family was treated with disrespect and frankly we felt as though we were not wanted. Apparently due to the recent management turnover there has been a severe decline... More

Having stayed multiple times at several ranches over the years, I know how absolutely wonderful a dude ranch experience can be for a family vacation. Clear Creek Ranch has the potential to be such an experience: great location, lovely views of the mountains, decent cabins and gentle horses. However, this ranch significantly disappoints due to management and staff indifference and... More

I just returned from my second trip to CCR. I'm planning trips for next year already. If you love to trail ride in the mountains this is a great place. Excellent accommodations, 3 great meals a day, beautiful scenery, great staff. 2 fun trail rides a day, gentle, sturdy trail horses and very knowledgeable wranglers. Great hiking trails on the...

My wife and I just got back from Clear Creek Dude Ranch and absolutely loved it! The trail rides were awesome and the staff were so nice. We stayed 3 days and the family style meals really got everyone acquainted. The views were beautiful and tranquil. We would recommend Clear Creek Dude Ranch to anyone looking for a relaxing adventure.

We stayed for three nights this summer and had a lovely time! This is the perfect place for families with kids of all ages as it allows you to spend lots of relaxed, quality time together. The ranch is located in the mountains amidst a national forest with stunning views. We were here in August and the weather was perfect... More

Beautiful location with great mountain views from the porch. Very nice staff. Best for first time dude ranch-goers and families with younger children. Families are kept together regardless of ability level, so good place for new riders or multi-generational groups looking for together time, rather than intense riding time.

I went to Clear Creek on my own and it was amazing. It was by far the most relaxing vacation ever. All of the staff from Marci, Jackie, Mike the Chef and the wranglers - Rebecca, Lindsey (x2), Anthony, Melissa, Amy, Emily, Johann and Avery were terrific. I had a horse for a long time and they allowed me to... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay at Clear Creek Ranch and can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the trip. We had discussed the idea of taking the kids (6 & almost 10) to Disneyworld but I didn't want to spend a lot of money to have to either have to shell out more money when the... More
