Stayed in the Riverbend cabin, surreal. Unfortunately only had a two night stay, we could have sat on the deck and watch the river for a lot longer. Great location, close to the national park but still close enough to Denver airport to catch a 10.30am flight.

I brought my family of 5 up from Denver (1.5 hour ride) and stayed in the "Elk Crossing Cabin". The cabin's name was appropriate because as we were moving our bags in we saw a family of elk about 20 feet away from our cabin door. The great customer service started before we even got there. We got a late... More

We stayed in the Riverbend Cabin and loved it. The patio towers over the Big Thompson and elk and other wildlife use the bend as a crossing spot. Though the cabins are closer together than you might picture, you can't see or hear your neighbors and it feels very secluded. The cabins were clean and thoughtfully decorated, and everything seemed... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Pine Creek cabin...we were there for 6 nights and although it was snowy, rainy and cold it was also absolutely beautiful! Very relaxing and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be back...LOVE this place.

Beautiful location, despite the snow, rain and wet! The staff was friendly and patient with our many questions. Spaces are tight and maneuvering through the lot tricky but we made it. Recommend upgrading to 50 amps. We kept tripping the breaker with our coffee maker and hair dryer. I was surprised that we were charged $15 to cancel our reservation... More

It was typical "Springtime in Colorado" when we stayed at Paradise on the River . . this time it meant rain and snow! But, what a beautiful location . . looking right out at the river from our motorhome bedroom! Owners were helpful and friendly. Good WiFi. My only recommendation . . upgrade to 50A . . as we tripped... More

I did not think that the reviews or pictures online would do it justice, however, I rented the Riverbend Cabin for one night and ended up staying two nights (would have stayed longer had I had more time). The owners are wonderful and you have all you need at the cabin - including a gas grill and firepit. It was... More

Work has kept me busy and away from writing my review of our Paradise on the River stay in September, 2014, but this unforgettable resort has never left my mind since, and it's easy to fondly reflect on the details of our Colorado vacation even a few months later. This review is about our stay in Elk Crossing Cabin at... More

We've been to Paradise a few times and each time we leave I'm already planning the next visit. This IS paradise! All the cabins are beautiful. We've stayed in Elk Crossing, Riverbend and soon, Brookside and enjoyed every moment. The staff and owners make you feel at home the minute you get there and you truly don't want to leave.... More

First time to Estes Park. Stayed here the first week of August 2014. Really loved Paradise on the River; contributed to a wonderful vacation. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Location of campground is convenient to both the National Park, as well as to the town of Estes Park, without being too close to the crowds. Wind River Cabin on... More
