“Ok but not as good as could be”

Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The homes were nicely furnished and the guides gave interesting information and background stories. However, there was not as much going on there as there could be. I've been to other living history museums which had the feel of a functioning town with commerce and industry going on, and the people in character. The guides at Rock Ledge Ranch dressed the part, but talked like modern-day people. For the price there should have been a lot more.

Especially great for kids but nice for all ages. Includes animals, craftspeople, homes from several time periods, from the one-room homestead to several decades later.

I would spend my money else where unless you really get into looking at old places and history. Not really worth it to me

Very small park that is easily overlooked. Located at the convergence of the entrance of the Garden of the Gods, the Nature and visitor center and the Historic park Ranch. Volunteers are dressed to fit the time period from Ute and Plaines Indians, homesteaders, farmers and trades people. The docent share the stories for the peoples and their hardships. Nice walking trail, easily maneuvered a stroller. Not very commercialized. General store quaint to fit time period.

We had a great 4th of July at Rock Ledge Ranch National Historic Site! There were lots of activities for kids and adults alike....It was a nice way to combine some history lessons with fun family fun. The bands were also great and added a patriotic flair to the whole day.
