5 stars does not give this secluded haven justice. Glamping at its finest. We fell asleep listening to the river. Food was prepared by amazing Chefs. Chef Basil is incredibly talented! Farm to table foods. Sarah, Kodi, Tara,Max,Noah the entire team pampered us and by the end of our stay we felt like family.Beautiful hikes, fly fishing, horseback riding, massage. You can also stay at Dunton Hot Springs. Have dinner in a romantic tee pee or Arrange a picnic lunch as you go hiking or biking. The staff is willing to do anything for anyone. Also, the property and tents were kept so clean. A+rating and thankful for the staff who kept our bath towels and Tent so clean(I am kind of a germaphobe)Thank you to the cleaning staff. We never saw them to thank them. The views of the mountains were memorizing.Star gazing was memorizing. home less than 24 hours and already missing the beauty and staff❤️ Please go to River Camp and go glamping or Dunton Hot Springs and stay in an old mining town...it will not disappoint.

Wow...what an amazing place this is. We decided to take part of their all day lunch and were totally amazed by the delicious food and service. They took care of everything. We spent the whole day in their Farmhouse. Great place and worth the visit. Next time we are going to spend a night.

Very remote but great accommodations. King size beds, tiled bathrooms with a deep soaking tub in a large tent?? This is the only way to camp! Go to sleep to the sound of the river flowing past the tents. Joelle took great care to meet our every need. The food was incredible thanks to Carlos and Patrick. Highly recommended!

Dunton River Camp is the best kind of Glamping. Camping in luxurious tents that will blow your mind. There is a king size bed, sofa, gas stove... even wifi. The bathroom is better then some hotels I've stayed in with dual sinks and a great bath /shower. There is a wonderful porch outside your tent to view the spectacular scenery or just sit and read a book. There is hiking, biking (free), horseback riding and fly fishing lessons (at a price). All the food and drink (are included) is at the main house not far from the tents. We thought the food was very good but not what we expected otherwise I would have given it a 5. The best part was all the great people we met during our stay. Eating is family style so all the visitors had lots of time to get to know each other. Also, after dinner we all went out to the fire pit to sit around and have smores and after dinner drinks.

My partner had been wanting to go Colorado and I received an email from Outside Magazine about this place…"Glamping" sounds intriguing so we booked our quick getaway to Cresto Ranch for two night of "Glamping" and then to Dunton Hot Springs with a cabin.. The Tents were wonderful next to a river with all the basic comforts of home and more, We had our meals at the lodge perhaps a few hundred steps away. No complaints about the food and service and what made it a special delight was meeting other adventurous Glampers. Listening to the river was wonderful… one needs to know how to work the push button wood stove which warmed up the tent in the late evening and early cooler mornings. All in all it was all one could ask for in a "Glamping" experience. I have to agree with the other reviews that the price is a bit steep for the value. There were more challenges for us at the Dunton Hot springs, an adjustment after our cozy tent, the only cabin left was the Potter house, which was further away from the lodge where everyone shared in meals. The cabin needs serious updating but the location and beauty was outstanding. We shared our challenges with the manager and he gave us a small discount for our stay which helped to swallow the overpriced stay. The springs were wonderful and healing. Again the food and service was great and meeting other people in this setting was a plus. We went away feeing peaceful after being in nature… the best medicine.
