Our family experienced the once in a life time adventure by staying at the Lost Valley Dude Ranch. Our shy oldest was begging us to return, "same time next year, with the same people, in the same cabin". Our middle son that truly is a boy, had the time of his life. Obviously, by the name of his award by...

We came here as a family of four because it was relatively close to a decent airport (Denver) and because of the great reviews on Trip advisor. I now wonder why nobody here has mentioned the fact that the entire forest surrounding the Ranch has been burnt at the big Hayman fire 10 years ago and has not been reforested....

My husband and I were privileged to be guests at Lost Valley while visiting our son who has been on staff there for the last two summers.

There's no place I'd rather be. I've been to LVR with groups of kids at least a dozen times. There are so many new opportunities.
