Welcome to Arapaho Valley Ranch!
“This is the best kept secret in Colorado. Kid friendly, beauty for days, fun common house, coolest bar in Colorado, water, freedoms, trails, wildlife, badass owners, tepees, relaxed vibe, it really doesn’t get much better. It’s a must for our family every year.”
Arapaho Valley Ranch is a gorgeous family owned, guest ranch located in Colorado’s beautiful Grand County. We are located at the base of the Indian Peaks Wilderness within a 2 hour drive from Denver.
We are a seasonal guest ranch, open from Memorial Day through Labor Day, weather dependent.
AVR has a very rich Colorado history and has been helping people enjoy the outdoors since the early 1900’s! There is a long standing history of families and friends that have spent their summers at AVR creating lifetimes of memories. You can feel this vibe as soon as you enter our gates!
Our ranch is surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest and is nestled in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. This area features hiking trails, waterfalls, and historic steam engines from the old town of Monarch. We have our own private hiking trail that leads to our “kissing swing” overlooking the headwaters of the Colorado River Valley.
Arapaho Valley Ranch offers upgraded outdoor camping accommodations AKA “Glamping” along with regular campsites for those of you that like it old school.
Looking for a place for your wedding, family reunion or business retreat? Our property has one of the most picturesque views in Colorado, and is a breathtakingly beautiful place to say “I DO”!
