Since 1972 the sleigh rides at the Winding River Resort have been creating stories that can be shared back home for the whole family. Winding River is situated about 3 miles away from the Grand Lake Village and borders the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Arapaho National Forest.
Its current owners Wes and Marcia make sure everything is up to the highest standards, from their recreational sites to their horses. Different accommodations are also available on-site. Guests can choose from cabins, lodge rooms, and tent sites.
