As they say, there’s nothing like riding a fine horse in new country. Many dude ranches are “working” ranches, where most of the day is spent in the saddle roaming and working the land. Badger Creek Ranch is one of those ranches. However, there are other activities for entertainment once the day is done. The ranch, located in the Colorado rockies, is close enough to the Arkansas river to spend a day on the water. This ranch is located in a remote place, and their bunkhouses are fueled by solar power. If luxury is a priority, look elsewhere. Breakfast and dinner is served in the bunkhouse, but lunch is eaten while out on the land with the cattle. It is important to note that this ranch does not have a liquor license, but guests are welcome to bring their own. Guest comments from around the world hail this as a unique and perfect ranch.
