Dude Ranch Vacations

Trail ride to Cow Camp at Sylvan Dale Ranch

Discover your Inner Cowboy!

Come! Discover your Inner Cowboy at Sylvan Dale Ranch — the New West — a lot like the Old West, but a whole lot more comfortable! Our historic working horse and cattle ranch has been in operation since the 1920’s. A little piece of Heaven tucked on the quiet side of Eagle Ridge, on the banks of the Big Thompson River. It’s probably the best place you’ve never been!

A Must for Your Bucket List!
