Take your summer vacation at the beautiful Blue Mesa Reservoir with tons of outdoor activities. Stay at our ranch in one of our spacious housekeeping cabins with a TV and personalized horseback rides, guided fishing trips, liquor store, game room, unique country store with fishing and camping supplies, groceries and one-of-a-kind souveniers. We'll make you feel like family with our western hospitality. 27+ year business with same owners. We love groups: family reunions, anniversaries, bachelor parties, church group rides, girl and boy scouts, etc. We cater to special events. Marina nearby and close to SW Colorado areas of interest. Adj to Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Gunnison Nat'l Forest/ West Elk Wilderness. Fall hunting horse leasing. All amenities are reasonably priced in a place where you'll want to come back to in the heart of Curecanti Nat'l Recreation Area on Colorado's western slope in John Wayne's "True Grit" country where the movie was filmed!
