Our family had another wonderful visit to the ranch (This is our third)! The staff is very friendly especially Kelly, Kathy and Ken! Kaitlyn was amazing with the kids under 10 for buckaroo rides (arena horseback riding lesson). Rustic and peaceful environment away from the city. The kids loved petting and visiting the horses and cows, making a western movie, the campfire and s’mores at night both near the office and at the chuckwagon sight, the playground, and collecting eggs from the chicken coup. The bunkhouse (recreation room) has lots of fun family games. There is a dinosaur museum and wolf rescue center nearby which made for fun afternoon outings. Wonderful place to relax and have privacy or meet other families and friendly staff. Cool mornings and evenings and hot days during the summer months. Pikes peak national forest and the ponderosa pines are beautiful as you drive to the ranch or when you take a trail ride. Lots of opportunities for interaction and watching horses, chickens, and a huge variety of bird species in the area. We also have stayed at the ranch during Fallfest and had a wonderful time with the family activities provided.

We had a great time! We came to camp and used their primitive camp sites. The bathrooms were excellent. Our kids enjoyed the playground a lot. We also booked a trail ride for 8 people (3 were kids). Tom and Charmaine were very patient and helpful with the kids. We had a great ride! I look forward to camping their again.

We went to the ranch for horseback riding. It was a beautiful ride and we really enjoyed it.
The ranch is beautiful and everyone that worked there was great. The videographer Ken was especially great to our group, giving us a tour of the ranch after our ride plus a great video.
Would definitely recommend.

This place has potential to be amazing but it shows a lot of neglect & terrible communication. They told use they were going to shut the water off in the upper area to winterize the lines but they ended up shutting ALL the water off on our second night so we had NO way to rinse our tanks, take showers, do diahes, etc.. Roads are heavily rutted, sites are covered with sticker bushes, trash & ours even had an abandoned sewer hose laying by the pedestal 🙄 We stayed during off season & still paid the full price without any of the "amenities" so that was disappointing. The office did leave out our late check in folder with instructions to leave our credit card information to complete the payment but there was NO where to leave it securely & no one was at the office the times we tried to go by 🤷‍♀️ Do not recommend.

First the good:
Beautiful location, clean, well maintained grounds, plenty of hiking, biking, moto trails. Easy access for large RVs, dump station on site, plus a couple shower houses.

The bad:
AVOID their horseback rides, especially with children. Safety does not seem to be a high priority at all and a child in our group was bitten by one of their horses while saddling up. We later learned that this particular horse is one of a few 'known problem horses' that they still use in rides. After the incident the staff didn't offer any first-aid assistance (not even an ice pack) but instead 'generously' offered to walk the child back to camp and waive the cancellation fee for his individual ride since he was in too much pain to continue.

We are very sorry to hear about your child!!! Our horse vendor is an independent entity and we were unaware of the issue until afterwards. Please accept our apologies and hope you will give us another chance. Please feel to reach out to me personally, mlazycguestranch@gmail.com or 719-748-3398 to make arrangements. Thank you!

We used to love this place, but the new ownership doesn't and it shows.

Roads on the ranch are unmaintained to the degree that some of the ruts pose a real hazard to RV's and horses being transported. I asked about this prior to arrival, upon arrival and prior to departure, and was told "we're working on it", but no work was actually performed. If anyone breaks their equipment or livestock, please feel free to reach out and I'll provide a copy of the formal notice that was given to them several days before our checkout, detailing each of the more serious ruts that posed a risk to our equipment. It might help you with your liability claim against them.

Sites are not level, and trash is evidently not picked up between stays. There's also an on-property burn ban, regardless of local burn advisories (that's not neglect on their part, but it's the only "campground" in CO that I've ever seen that doesn't allow fires when everyone else does).

There's a smoking ban on the property (which I approve of), but it doesn't apply to staff and marijuana, apparently, as the staff camper south situated of site 16a sent waves of dirtweed smoke our way throughout our stay. We also got to listen to them complaining on the phone about being unable to get high despite smoking 20 joints a day. (I suspect it was because she was smoking dirtweed instead of the medical grade recreational marijuana that CO is famous for.. it sure smelled that way).

The new owners are present, but they never spoke with us; they just drove by and gave us dirty looks after we sent the "these roads are sketchy" email. We saw them frequently adding equipment to the MMA studio they're apparently trying to get off the ground, which they seem much more focused on than the ranch. Personally, I don't think that rolling around with other dudes in the backwoods is the best business model, but I understand Brokeback Mountain did pretty well at the box office, and that didn't interest me either. Maybe they're on to something. Time will tell, but in the meantime, I wouldn't recommend visiting the ranch for anything else.

Another issue is the forest service road that you have to follow to access the ranch. I'm not sure if they're allowed to grade it or if it's beyond their control, but if you are not interested in off-roading your coach or your trailer, you may want to think twice. "We're working on it" doesn't mean what most people think it means to these folks.

On the plus side: It's serene, and it was empty while we were there, which was fantastic (probably not so much for the new owners). There were two other couples on the property the whole time we were there. Once the coach was parked, I had my heavily modded Jeep and the roads were fine for that.

Room Tip: The only RV site with 50 amp is 16. Be ready to off-road to get to the ranch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this ranch. We were especially impressed with the programs provided for the children each day. The bathrooms are very clean and the staff is extraordinarily accommodating and nice. If you like to trail ride or just take a horseback ride with a guide, there are miles of National Forest right next door. There are horse pens at each site. The kiddos in our group really loved making the movie.

This is the place for a relaxing, western style of a vacation. The staff is always friendly and eager to assist to make your vacation memorable. The horseback ride is a must. Our guides Autumn and Andrew could not have been any better. The horses are well trained and this ride is probably the best we have ever taken. We don't want to leave.

Best trail ride EVER! our guide was Cowboy Tom...worth it just for him! My wife and I did a couples ride on our vacation and came up from Green Mountain Fals. The ranch is a great piece of property we got a tour of cabins - plan to go back and stay with our family when we are in Colorado again. This is a high quality place and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.

The "spacious cabin" was a tiny room barely big enough to fit our stuff. A space heater for heat and an outhouse. No keys to lock our room. All the hunters were trying to find out who their guides were at 9pm the night before the hunt. Pete told my husband he will be hunting in 581. We later learned 581 is an over the counter unit. His draw was for 59 but he never got to hunt that unit. Told we would pay $750 for a pack out services if we got an elk. I had a contract clearly stating pack out services were included.
Monday, the spot he and his guides had hunted the last two days was taken by another guide after he heard about their elk sighting the day before. none of the guides were familiar with the area.
