This Good Sam RV Park, located right next to Rocky Mountain National Park, caters to horse lovers
Colorado’s Winding River Resort is a popular destination for RVers, with its close proximity to the charming town of Grand Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park and Arapahoe National Forest. The Colorado River runs through this Good Sam Park resort. For horse owners, it gets even better. Horse runs are available at RV sites (or at the barn for people renting cabins). The resort offers direct access to miles of designated trails in adjacent Rocky Mountain National Park. One- and two-hour trail rides on the resort’s horses are scheduled eight times a day from Memorial Day through September 30.
On Sunday mornings, the resort offers a delicious chuck wagon breakfast (with a gluten-free option) and then guests can hitch their horses to the posts by the Colorado River for Cowboy Church. Kids and adults alike will delight in the animal farm with baby goats, sheep, piglets and bunnies. In addition, moose, elk, foxes, coyotes, bears and birds can be spotted at the resort and on nearby hiking trails. The resort also has a Carriage and Sleigh Museum with restored horse-drawn vehicles dating back to the late 1800s.
