I spent 3 nights with my family on September 16, 2011. The setting and location are outstanding right on the banks of the beautiful Big Thompson River. We stayed in the Wagon Wheel Bunkhouse (the lowest priced accommodation). Clean and comfortable slept
well. They have many cabins that would probably be much nicer. The daily breakfast was
great. The staff was Very Friendly. We took a trail ride on horses and that was also alot of fun. The resort is only about 28 miles from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. Enroute you travel through the Big Thompson River Canyon...which is breath taking.
