My family (wife and I with our 3 little boys) had a truly rich and relaxing experience at Wind River Ranch. It went way past our expectations. Our kids loved riding the ranch pony, Brownie and swimming underneath the shadow of Longs Peak, the rec hall with all its activities and the incredible and very attentive staff who took excellent...

This place is awesome! Accommodations were rustic w/a hint of luxury. Food was great, even with requests due to special diets. Activities were a highlight, especially the horses. Staff was incredible!

The facilities are wonderful; the food is outstanding; the horses well-trained....but the single most notable factor is the staff. they are truly amazing servants with one common desire to make the week truly special for every guest. From complimentary nursery care morning to night, kids club, teen club, and kayaks for the adults....just fabulous vacation.

Absolutely beautiful setting staffed by even more beautiful people. If you enjoy horseback riding, hiking, fishing, or even just relaxing, this is the place to be. Safe and enjoyable for the whole family.

There are experiences you have as a family that resonate for years. This is the Wind River Christian Dude Ranch experience. Our family of ten - grandparents, parents and grandchildren went to the ranch having no idea what to anticipate. Only knowing what we had read on Trip Advisor and Google sites and their website, we took a leap of... More

It is hard to put into words the blessing of being loved, cared for and entertained while surrounded by Gods Creation in " living color". We just returned from our second year at " the Ranch" we never thought we could beat our enjoyment level from year 1 but we were wrong. This year with the passing of my mom... More

What a beautiful backdrop for such a great Family camp. And absolutely no worries about kiddos because they are in kids camp, Tweens or teens during the morning while we attended a 1 hr optional Bible study. Jeff Warren was are speaker and he was great. The activities were wonderful - riding, fishing, hiking, climbing wall, zip line, golf outing... More

We love wind river. It's relaxing, fun, beautiful and rejuvenating place to go. This is our third year and we look forward to coming every year. Our boys start asking when we are going back right after we get home. It's a great setting in the mountains with lots of things to do. The food is fabulous! Staff is great... More

After a year of investigation, we selected this ranch for our "dream" get-away with our two grandsons, 9 and 11. God couldn't have selected a better place. It is impossible, in the few words permitted in this review, to do justice to our experience. Our grandsons, and we, have been moved and touched in ways that are unexplainable except through...

Wind River Ranch is amazing! We woke up every morning to the beauty of God's Creation, the Rocky Mountains. Our cabin was wonderful, comfortable and clean, 2 bedrooms, 2 bath & a front porch. The food was delicious, every day! One of the best parts was the Bible study and getting to know God and the other guests better through... More
