Activities in the Area
We are located on the banks of the Rio Grande River in a very private and secluded setting on 8 acres. Relax and enjoy the sounds of the river from your cabin, hammock or cooking out right next to the river. Do a little fishing on our property or take a float down the 17 miles of 'Gold Medal' waters between South Fork and Del Norte. Hit the slopes at Wolf Creek, take an ATV out into the surrounding national forest, or throw a line into one of our nearby lakes or reservoirs.
Feel free to throw a line in - there are more than 700 feet of private access fishing on the majestic Rio Grande River! For those more adventurous souls, use our raft outfitted for fishing and spend a day on the river. If you would rather have a guide, let us book a reservation with one of the local fishing guides (Rio Grande Anglers). There are also a number of lakes and reservoirs nearby.

Creede Repertory Theatre
The theatre is located in Creede, about 30 miles from here. From South Fork, you will take one of Colorado's Scenic Byways (Hwy 149) along the Rio Grande River.
Put in or take out right at your doorstep or from our launching area. You will find class I water from South Fork to Del Norte and some class I and II from Creede to South Fork.
