Camping is pure fun, and every family should squeeze in a night under the stars as part of their family ranch vacation. You decide which night you would like to venture off into the wilderness, and we will take care of the rest! Enjoy the same luxuries of your cabin – even while being surrounded by the beauty of Mother Nature – during your cowboy camping experience.

Your night of family camping begins after dinner and after you have chosen your desired amount of participation in the activities on ranch that evening. When you’re ready to strike out into the wilderness, a ranch hand will guide you to the Outpost. A cozy Conestoga Wagon with a s’mores kit and the rustic ambiance of the Great Outdoors will be awaiting you. No need to struggle with setting up a tent or building a campfire; everything is ready and waiting for you. Spend this time away from the rest of your ranch friends to share stories with the kids and to learn how their time at C Lazy U dude ranch has affected them. Gather around the fire, share stories and laughter, and build some sticky s’mores. Enjoy the sounds of the nighttime wildlife and the blanket of stars above you before settling down in your comfy beds made up with luxurious linens and smiling at all the new memories you are creating under the stars.

The interior of the Conestoga Wagon contains a king bed, a twin-size bunk-bed, and a table for two. Outdoors you have a fire pit and breathtaking views! The Wagon is heated with a propane heater and you’ll have electric lighting as well. Glamping in Colorado is nothing short of spectacular. A ranger ATV and a radio will be provided for you as a safety precaution so that you can be safe while feeling adventurous on your Colorado family vacation.

“Gorgeous ranch getaway in the lovely mountains of Colorado!”

I recently stayed at C Lazy U Ranch for a friend's wedding. This place is well taken care of, the land is pristine and the location is just gorgeous. The cabin-style rooms are really nice. Ours had a wood burning fire place and a Keurig coffee machine (I'm a bit of a coffee fanatic). The bed was SO comfortable and had thick blankets that kept me warm throughout the night.
