If you forget to pack something, don’t worry! You can always head to the ranch store, Luis’ Old Place, to pick up anything you may have missed. We have everything from toothpaste to the perfect boots for horseback riding.

Stay Hydrated:

C Lazy U Ranch is at an altitude of 8,200 feet, which can contribute to dehydration. We provide all guests with reusable water bottles to fill with the fresh mountain spring water available throughout the ranch, but we suggest hydrating before coming to Colorado. Teardrop image
