Horse Camp Trips
 
Camping in the West Elk WildernessClimb into the saddle, grab your reins and ride with us into the magnificent West Elk Wilderness area for an adventure filled vacation. At the trail head your guide will go through a short, but thorough training on riding the high country trails, before carefully packing your personal gear on one of our experienced pack horses. Your adventure begins with a leisurely two hour ride into our base camp, your home away from home for the extent of your trip.Our first-class camp is equipped with roomy 12X15 canvas wall tents accommodating up to five guests each. Furnishings include wall-to-wall flooring, screened windows and doors, base camp style cots with mattresses, and solar lighting.

You’ll enjoy delicious ranch-style meals prepared and served in our spacious 16x32 dining tent. Other facilities include a latrine tent, tack tent, and guide tent.

Fun for the whole familyThis trip is individually designed for you, by you, so you select the daily activities. Choose from hiking, fishing, photography, bird and wildlife watching, or the ever popular horseback riding. There are literally hundreds of miles of wilderness trails winding along the volcanic ridges and through the scenic valleys offering half day to full day expeditions. We know the country and how to get to those breathtaking out of the way places like Cross Park, Sheep Basin, Storm Ridge, and the Benches; secluded basins and ridges off the beaten path that very few ever have the opportunity to see. This trip is designed to expose you to some of the most spectacular country in the Rockies, so bring your camera and plenty of film.
