Upon arrival at the resort you will immediately come upon our eastern horse pasture – a fun place for the horses to play and show off for guests.

A little further, and you come upon Cockaigne’s Circle C RV Park. The park is conveniently located at the banks of Clear Creek and in the middle of horse country.

Cross a small bridge and discover the Wilderness Outpost – the resort’s center for guest activities.

Stay on the path and you will arrive at The Lodge – the center of Dining and home to The Pub – a local favorite!

The Lodge is also home to all winter time skiing and snowmobiling activities. Get your rentals – lessons – and merchandise – while taking in the breathtaking view from The Lodge.
