The Cabins


You always wanted a cabin in the woods.

It's everything you need, and nothing you don't.

The Cabins


You always wanted a cabin in the woods.

It's everything you need, and nothing you don't.

Cabins

Our cabins are charming and rustic. Some of which are from the early 1900’s and others that have been built in the last decade. All cabins are equipped with propane heaters that will run throughout the night to keep you nice and warm. Every cabin has electricity but they do not have plumbing. Prices range from $70 for a cabin that sleeps two, to $165 a night for one that sleeps 8. For more information select "our cabins" below.

Bath house

The bathhouse is centrally located. It is comfortable and clean, and a welcome respite after a long day in the wilderness.
Cabin guests have full use of the private showers. Towels are provided in the cabins.

Lights Out

The resort gets its electricity from a generator that runs from 6:30 am until 9:00 pm. After that its lights out, with only the sea of stars and moon to light your way. Be sure to bring lanterns and head lamps and enjoy some time well spent around the camp fire.

Fishing

Stand on the bank of a swirling stream and gently lay your fly down on the water – GULP! You got him! Sound like fun? This is the kind of excitement that awaits you at Trappers Lake. With over 100 miles of fishable waters, the Flat Tops Wilderness surrounding Trappers Lake is a bona-fide angler’s paradise. We can provide guide services for whatever floats your boat.

Hiking

Off the beaten path is an understatement when it comes to hiking the Trappers Lake area. The trails begin around the lake’s edge, and then wind and snake through meadows, pine forests, aspens stands, across streams and alongside beaver ponds.

Horses

Imagine the days of trappers and pioneers while traversing the trails on the back of a horse. It’s one of the rare pleasures of a wilderness adventure and is not to be missed. Our trail boss will guide you up to the top of the Flat Tops wilderness where the expansive views will take your breath away. 

Hunting

The Trappers Lake hunting experience is unmatched, with wild game roaming the Colorado high country in the Flat Tops wilderness. We furnish the tents, cots, heating/cooking stoves, propane, water source, wood, camp table/chairs and horses to and from camp. We do the hard part. You have all the fun.

Paddling

We have an assortment of paddle boards, canoes and rowboats ready and waiting at the water’s edge. An expansive course of open water is at your paddle’s tip. Experiencing the beauty of Trappers Lake from the water is as captivating as it gets.

Camping

Experience a different kind of camping at one of our Wilderness Camps. Choose to be accompanied by one of our experienced guides, who will prepare all of your meals and tend to the camp chores, or request to be packed into one of our fully equipped camps.
