Go to All Members

Nestled in the majestic mountains of Colorado, just 7 miles from the quaint town of Estes Park, Wind River Ranch offers a peaceful and beautiful setting for you and your family to enjoy a restful getaway from the normal busy pace of life. We strive to take care of all the details, allowing you to have plenty of time to focus on relaxing and renewing in an uplifting, Christian environment. Our desire is to take care of all the guess work that comes with the typical vacation; where to eat, what to do, where to stay, transforming it from a potentially stressful trip into an amazing family vacation! Experience days filled with chef-prepared meals, incredible mountain views, exciting activities and adventures, and intentional family time. We want to offer you the chance to rest or be as active as you desire, all in a setting surrounded by God’s creation.

The activities at WRR are varied and endless! Of course, the favorite activity is horseback riding through Rocky Mountain National Park and joining in lessons in our arena. We have over 80 horses and miles of riding trails on our 2,500 acres of privately leased ranch properties. But if you want a break from the horses, we also offer a wide assortment of activities to appeal to people of all ages. Test your lumberjack skills and enjoy our hatchet and knife throwing. Be prepared for lots of laughs with our log rolling competition which takes place in the resort swimming pool. We have a climbing wall and zip line for the whole family to enjoy. Lake kayaking adventures are available during your stay, one of which is on the splendid Lily Lake. We also offer square dances, hootenannies, rodeos and so much more! Just remember that you have the freedom to be as busy as you want or to just swing in a hammock and enjoy peace and quiet.

At WRR, your children are our top priority. We have created a wonderful children’s program led by our handpicked staff and focused around age appropriate activities and Bible-centered interaction. Each age group (kids, tweens, teens) have the option to join in on this fun-filled time which meets for a few hours each day. We also offer a fully-staffed nursery for our extra young guests. Children 7 years and older are welcome to participate in the trail rides led by our experienced wranglers. Children 6 and younger will become good friends with Moon Shredder, our pony, as they ride around the pony trails. Babysitting is available for children 6 and younger so that you may enjoy the many activities Wind River Ranch has to offer.
The old saying is they will forgive you for bad theology long before they will forgive you for bad food! Here at the ranch, our executive chefs will exceed your families’ expectations! We offer a wide variety of home-style cooking with an emphasis on fresh and flavorful. From our fresh baked breads and desserts to our savory main courses, you’re sure to find something to please the taste buds! If you have special dietary needs, you will have the full attention of our assistant chef who will prepare each meal to fit your needs. You can rest assured that your meal has been prepared especially for you.

Our guests stay in log cabins that are best described as rustic elegance. These quaint log cabins combine the nostalgic feel of cabins with the contemporary interiors you associate with resort living. It will quickly become your home away from home. Please visit our website to view cabin photos that showcase the wonderful western decor and the newly renovated master bedrooms and baths.

Come and enjoy the Creator in a unique way on a special family vacation. We look forward to serving you and your family here in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado at Wind River Christian Family Dude Ranch!
