The popular resort town of Estes Park is the ultimate destination for those who love the outdoors.

It also overlooks Lake Estes, is intersected by Big Thompson River, and bordered by Roosevelt National Forest. There are many different ways to explore, whether on foot, on horseback, by bicycle and, in winter, on cross-country skis or snowshoes. To fully immerse yourself in Estes Park’s nature-loving lifestyle, make your base in one of the town’s many rustic cabin rentals.
