Beaver Meadows Resort Ranch is a unique mountain getaway destination, situated on 480 scenic acres along the North Fork of the Cache la Poudre River, with around 50 tent and RV sites, as well as rustic camper cabins. Lodging, condos, and stand-alone cabins are also available, as well as fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, and much more!
Spent a quick couple of days there in late May. Was surprised to find they had openings. Our campsite was down a few steps and right next to the river flowing through the property, nestled amongst the pines, and shady. In this area, the distance between campsites was great. We did a lot of hiking and relaxing. The scenery and landscape in Red Feather Lakes area is as cool as it is unique. Really enjoyed it and will visit again.
- Firepits do not have any sort of cooking grate…we had to get creative, but made it work.
- Really only room for one tent in this campsite until that tree is further cut/removed
To say we love Beaver Meadows would be a huge understatement. We spend just about every other weekend there all year long - winter and summer. We got married there in 2014 (as our photos show) and it was beautiful. The outdoor wedding area is amazing and right by a river. The reception hall for after is so cool with giant windows so you can look out in every direction on nature and you celebrate your big day. Ever since we've been hooked. They had cabins, condos, lodges, and camp spots so every guest had a place to stay the night.
When you pull around the corner and into the valley it takes your breath away every single time. Lush green fields, ponds, stunning mountain backdrops, wildlife, horses running free, people fishing and riding horses. It's a playground for adults and kids and it's only an hour from our house in Fort Collins - we can't stay away. They have a yummy restaurant too so we never even bring food - we just eat there.
In the winter we go snow tubing (12 + runs with a lift) and stay in one of their little heated cabins which is so cozy but also provides all the amenities of home (kitchen, bedrooms, entertainment, etc). We love to go up before a storm and watch the snow start to fall. In the spring and summer we are up there camping along the river all the time. Each site is unique so we like to change it up each time - we go hiking, horseback riding, and fish in the stocked ponds! There are some unique fish in there - really neat. In the fall we like to go up and do the "river walk" - a series of paths and bridges through tall foilage that feels like your in a different world. Watching the leaves change is awesome in the fall - compares to any drive you can do in the state - soooo many aspens.
If your looking for a romantic weekend with the significant other or a family vacation with the kiddos - I would highly suggest making the drive up - I bet you will fall in love with it just like we did and won't be able to stay away.
We stayed here for a weekend since we were married there the year before. It's a beautiful camping spot close to amenities. Felt like camping in a forest.
