Lots to do at Williams Fork Lodging!
Our elevation is roughly 8,400 ft at the Lodge ascending to 10,000 ft in elevation on the Williams Fork Range.
Various game is abundant.
The Williams Fork elk herd is one of the largest in the area, we see elk practically every month of the year. Early spring and early winter the herd starts to group together for their short migration to lower altitude near Parshall Divide…it’s truly spectacular to see elk in these large numbers flowing together down the ridge en masse.
You will most likely hear them before you see them!
Our moose population has increased over the years.
The Williams Fork Range mule deer are abundant as are the black bear.
Hummingbirds nest here and keep everyone busy with their food preparation; we use an average of 75-100 pounds of sugar every summer feeding these little gems!
“The Hummers ate from my hands!! Such a thrill to feel the whisper of their tiny feet.” The Moore’s, Denver
Opportunities for a great fishing trip are all over Grand County!
– The Williams Fork Reservoir is just 4 miles from the Lodge…five other popular reservoirs and lakes are within a half hour drive.
– Gold medal waters on The Colorado River…one of the more popular areas is the Kemp Breeze Unit, a short one mile walk takes you to the confluence of the Williams Fork River and the Colorado River.
A map of the County is provided so you know where to go! Ask Dale to mark your map so you won’t miss a thing!
Dare to try something you have never done before?…. Zip line, Kokanee Round-up, Cattle drive.
Winter activities would include a dog sled ride, snowmobile rental, tubing hill, horse-drawn sleigh ride, trail ride, or bring your own horse! We have a corral!
Photography opportunities are around every corner.
The spectacular vista is constantly changing whether it is the clouds adding and/or moving shadows on the bluffs or filling the valley below with a misty high mountain feeling,
or the full moon peeking out from the mountain peaks and ranges…every change is breathtaking….
Have I mentioned rainbows? How about full double rainbows? Imagine meditation, soaking in the hot tub, yoga, your wedding, or celebration under a full rainbow on our new deck.
Wildflowers in late June and July are stunning
Bring your bike, hiking boots, snowshoes, and x-country skis to enjoy on the 40 acres right out your door!
Are you a forager? Maybe you are interested in learning a few basics? Our surrounding area is a wonderful place to learn about various wildcrafting.
The yellow/gold quaking aspens are a real treat here…the aspens have started filling in the areas where beetle-killed pines have been managed…creating a stunning variety of colors on every ridge.
