Enjoy the Splendor of a Lakeside Resort in the Rocky Mountains

Overlooking beautiful Vallecito Lake and located in the heart of the San Juan National Forest, Pine River Lodge is your perfect year-round Colorado family vacation destination. The lake is the ideal place to play, sail or fish. The trails through the mountains offer a great opportunity to take in nature during a hiking or biking trip. Or, go out on horseback or on an ATV! You can also visit in the winter and cross-country ski, snowmobile or snowshoe. Choose from over 20 one- to three-bedroom mountain cabins, complete with air conditioning, cable TV and a full kitchen. There's plenty of room and activities for your next Colorado family reunion.


With so much to do, your family will bond like never before at the Pine River Lodge. Teach the kids how to fish on Vallecito Lake, hit the trails on horseback, explore the Rocky Mountains on skis or ATVs. Continue quality time in the spacious one- to three-bedroom cabins with cable TV and Internet.


Whether you are an old salt or new fisherman, you won't have trouble catching some of Vallecito Lake's treasures at Pine River Lodge. Catch kokanee salmon, rainbow trout, northern pike, small mouth bass, walleye or perch. This is also a perfect spot to relax between bites. So enjoy your CO fishing!


Pine River Lodge makes Vallecito Lake – about 5 miles long and 1.5 miles wide – part of its attraction. Splash and play in the lake's waters, explore its shimmery surface in a canoe or pontoon boat or entice creatures below its depths. Spend a day on the lake or at the foot of the Rocky Mtns.


A part of the Rocky Mountains, the San Juan Mountains are the picturesque location of Pine River Lodge. Ride your mountain bike or ATV through the trails and breathe in the Colorado mountain air and marvel at all its beauty. Travel on the nearby Middle Mountain, Lemon Lake and Beaver Meadows trails.
