“Horse ride for the kids, Wifi in the winderness and nice people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Kids rode bikes without a worry. Horse rides, and bike rides-nice neighbors who took time to introduce their horses to our kids. Views abound and yes if you can't live without wifi and cell service we both got perfect service in the middle of the park!!!!

Quiet and restful and not far from the town of Grand Lake which is worth a visit-boat rentals and strolling down main street.

This is a fantastic park. The RV spots in the back have no concrete pads, so it can get muddy when it rains. If you have a horse this is a great place for them and you. We rode ATV's - available right at the resort. A great little zoo for the kids, too.

Stayed with folks in their motorhome during Labor Day weekend this year and in a cabin Memorial Day weekend over a year ago. This compound has a small general store, clean shower buildings, horse back riding, playgrounds for the kids and miscellaneous activities. It is located just across the river from the west side of Rocky Mountain NP so there are a bunch of hiking trails nearby (if that's your thing, it is definitely mine). The cabin we stayed in last year were very basic but served our needs. Our family likes to stay here so I'm sure we'll be back.

We spent a week at Winding River Resort with our two personal horses. The riding is amazing. The campground is nice, clean with not much leveling needed. The horse pens are nice and large. We cannot say enough good things about this place. All the employees were friendly and very helpful. The amount of moose, elk, deer, etc was unbelievable. The place is very nice for families with lots of activities to do. The towns of Grand Lake and Granby are very nice and an easy drive to grab something to eat or do some shopping. The fireworks over the lake are gorgeous.

Stayed in a cabin the last couple nights of our trip after traveling all over the state. Great place to relax and unwind. Kids loved petting the animals, throwing rocks in the river, the pancake breakfasts on the weekend were fun, and taking the 2 hour trail ride into RMNP, the first horse ride for the boys, was a hi-lite of the trip. Enjoyed walking outside and seeing so many stars, then waking up in the morning and seeing the clouds hanging over the mountains. Cowboy church outside was nice too.After not seeing many elk in RMNP, came back our last night and a herd was right along the road to Winding River, a moose and calf came through the prior night and my son spotted a bald eagle zooming over the camp. Easy run to Grand Lake for supplies or a meal if you need it.

some of the sites for RV's are right next to the cabins, so a little noise from that, but nothing major.
Everyone who works there was extremely friendly, and we wished we had more time there.

Best ever camping experience! Awesome service, clean restrooms, friendly staff and campers. Great location for free outdoor activities - running, hiking, biking, kayaking and swimming. We did not want to leave! Go during the week if u can. Gets a little crowded during the weekend rush in the summer. Definitely coming back. Would live here if we could!
