Welcome to Tumbling River Ranch, an award-winning Colorado dude ranch and one of the top family resort ranches in the Rockies. With a superb location nestled in a secluded valley high in the Rocky Mountains, ours is a truly special place for kids, parents and grandparents to enjoy a one-of-a-kind family vacation at a Colorado ranch resort-the best ranch vacation for the entire family! We specialize in week long stays during the summer months and multi-night stays in the fall and spring. We operate from mid-May through the early winter.
Come enjoy superb horseback riding for all ages, exceptional dining, fun activities and outstanding children’s programming for babies, schoolkids, and teenagers. Enjoy one of our dude ranch holidays today!
We left our families, work schedules and comfort zones at home to go on a group adventure. Thirteen (middle-aged) girlfriends joined in the fun; we checked ‘dude ranch adventures’ off our bucket lists and channeled our inner cowgirls!
President, Conlin Travel
At Conlin Travel, we book many family and multigenerational family vacations. I can say, without hesitation and to the person, families we sent to Tumbling River Ranch come back saying it was the best family vacation they have ever had. When children are happy, parents are happy, and that’s guaranteed to happen at Tumbling River Ranch.
I wish I didn't have to leave! Tumbling River Ranch is such a special place. Our main focus was to get to ride while at TRR and we were taken on the most amazing rides I have ever been on. The scenery will forever be etched in my mind. The wranglers do an amazing job of taking care of all levels of riders and make the trail rides so fun as well as breathtaking. I highly recommend the overnight pack trip- it was a highlight! I could go on and on....I will just say it is a place you need to go and experience for yourself and you will be so happy you did. I hope to go back again!
Chief of Wilderness Stewardship, National Park Service
In September of 2016 I coordinated a 4 day wilderness stewardship training session at Tumbling River Ranch for 24 National Park Service personnel. Our group was extremely impressed with all aspects of TRR, including the conference faciliites, quality food, comfortable and economical lodging, friendly and competent staff, and Megan and Scott's hospitality and attention to sevice. The serene location at the foot of the Mount Evans Wilderness in the Colorado high country served as the perfect venue to meet our training objectives. I hope to host another training session at TRR someday in the future.
