The location is remote and quiet. It's beautiful and there are several great fishing options - the pond is small and didn't result in much but Sleepy Cat (White River) is close by and wonderful. Upon arrival, we had to clean multiple dog poop piles in order to set up. Could be the camp host dog (next door) but dogs were running around unleashed everywhere and never saw anyone cleaning up after them. We brought our pup, but he's always leashed (he's a runner). He handled literally being surrounded by multiple dogs at one time well, but that's a recipe for disaster. A woman lives behind the campground and she literally walked thru our campsite at least a dozen times (several times while we were sitting there). Camp etiquette didn't apply, but she did take a different path once this was addressed. Full hookups were appreciated and again it is beautiful. However, there are other places not as far away that we prefer.…
Ute lodge is awesome place to stay. Staff, cabins and all accommodations were excellent. A great time riding utv’s, lots of trails The wild life was great and scenery was beautiful . Can’t wait until next year. The Wisconsin and Missouri crew.
We spent three nights in the Pine cabin. It was an adorable little cabin, though I wouldn't suggest it for anyone who is large in either girth or height; the ceiling is low in some places, and the bathroom is a bit of a tight squeeze. Lots of access to hiking trails; we did some of the Papoose trail, which runs right along a river. Everyone was very friendly, and we enjoyed all the animals. Sitting on the porch watching the hummingbirds was a highlight, and my kids spent some time hanging out with the horses, chickens, and pigs. The kitchen comes well equipped, with pots, pans, utensils, plates, cups, and flatware. There's a full fridge and gas oven/stovetop, plus a charcoal grill outside. Bring your own consumables! They provide dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, and toilet paper, but the rest is up to you, and it's an hour to town. We brought salt, ketchup, charcoal, etc. (You're in the woods, so mice are a possibility; bring containers that can close tightly.) We were under a fire ban (and in fact had to go home a different way since I-70 was blocked by a fire in Glenwood Canyon), so we missed the nightly campfires, but Mona was very nice and helpful with all the questions we had.…
We rented 2 different cabins and stayed 3 nights. I have never felt so at home staying at a camping spot. The owners make sure to make you feel welcome. As a matter of a fact you feel as if the owners and all guests are family. There are beautiful hiking trails. An amazing fishing lake. Horses to ride. A park for the kids. And let's not forget the chickens, pigs and Turkeys the kids get to see. And the most fun was the community fire pit. Its amazing to get to know everyone around a fire. We will be going back several times EVERY summer. My Grandson says that Ute Cabins is the gateway to the "Lost magical Forrest" 😉 I highly suggest everyone makes it up there to stay.
We attended a wedding here and it is beautiful. The owners are so accommodating and met every request of the bride and our family. The venue is so beautiful, very well maintained and nicely laid out. It is adjacent to Federal land and is great for hunting and for other recreation
Just spent 7 days here in our Rv. They have a fantastic setting. Full hookups are available as well as many different cabins to choose from. This is a family owned working ranch so there is plenty to do. Bring your horses, stay in a cabin or the Yurt at the top of the mountain.Check out the fishing pond, the evening community fire with stories and music if you participate. Hike forever, bring your atv's and experience the miles of trails on the flattops. If you are looking for the big city rv park with paved roads and concrete pads, this is not your place, but if your are looking for a little piece of heaven in the Colorado mountains then give this place a try. We will definitely be back. Prices are quite reasonable.
My son, friends and family members have stayed at Ute Lodge 9 times in the last 9 years. The setting at the edge of the Flat Tops Wilderness and White River National Forest is beautiful. The cabins are rustic to modern. Lots to choose from to suit your needs and style. Price is right and the owner, Karl Maser, goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. Camping, walking, horseback riding or hunting and fishing, whatever your desires for an outdoor adventure, can be found at the Ute Lodge.
I am a lawyer from New York and a friend of mine booked two nights in this lodge as we did a road trip to see the wild horses in Wyoming - Ute Lodge turned out to be an amazing find. Highly recommended is the Old Baldy Yurt where we stayed a night as well. Modeled after a Mongolian mobile home, it offers you an amazing view (including a starlit sky at night), grill/fire place, solar lighting, fully equipped kitchen, beds as well as an out house. The hosts were lovely and did everything to make us feel at home and have a great time which we did!
The Masers were incredibly hospitable hosts to our large group. Everything was ready for our stay with extra picnic tables pulled over to our site. The teenagers love the large stone fireplace and smokes around the campfire at night. I loved seeing moose at the pond right on the property on several occasions. Bring your camera if you want to get photos of "Splashy"
My wife and I were going to ride the OHV trails into the Whiteriver Forest, and could not take our toy hauler. Found the Ute Lodge, and was extremely satisfied. Friendly, clean, and very peaceful. Great place to relax after riding for the day. Already planning our next trip, and looking to take our t o y hauler this time because they do offer RV parking as well as the cabins.
