About Tumbling River Ranch

"We just returned from the best family vacation ever; a family dude ranch in Colorado.  It is my goal to make sure each of you takes your family to this ranch before the kids are too old."  This is from a past Tumbling River Ranch guest and a President of a world-wide travel company!  Tumbling River Ranch is a second generation, family run and owned, central CO dude ranch.  Started in 1940, the ranch is full of history, tradition and excitement!
Tumbling River offers splendid accommodations with fireplaces, private baths and big outdoor porches in our charming cabins or historic ranch houses. Everything you could want for a perfect family vacation - gentle, good-natured horses, great childrens, teens and nannies programs, terrific fishing, white water rafting and miles of unspoiled mountain beauty. Pool, hot tubs, evening activities, overnight pack trip and lots of live music. Easy access - only an hour from Denver. Reduced rates for kids and adults in June and September. Weddings September 1st thru November 1st.  Owned and operated by Megan and Scott Dugan. Come experience our friendly staff, exciting activities and great family memories.

Dining Ranch Dining: Everything here is home cooked, we make our own breads and desserts. All you can eat, dinners will feature beef or pork tenderloin, grilled chicken, and barbeque ribs. Cookouts... you haven't lived until you've ridden several hours up to a mountain meadow and smelled coffee brewing and bacon cooking. We cater to any eating style or dietary need. One of the week's highlights is the candlelight dinner. Kids have a fun outdoor cookout while you feast in splendor. Beer and wine service is included.
