    Description

    We opeate a family-owned glamping campground located in the heart of Colorado. Running this property is a dream come true for us. The property is surrounded by untouched national forest land and is a short 5-minute drive from the Tarryall Reservoir. With easy access to hiking, climbing, biking, water sports and more, there’s no shortage of things to do around the area!

    We aim to provide each and every guest with a comfortable and memorable experience with a focus on enjoying nature, unplugging from electronics, and trying something new. We are looking for someone to help us this summer season as the tasks at hand have grown past our own ability. We are growing into a non-profit that will provide first responders, veterans, and their families with wilderness retreats free of charge but are functioning as a for-profit business right now. You will be able to help with a variety of tasks and get to know us as owners very well throughout your stay!

    You will be able to spend your nights in a hand painted tipi. Each is uniquely designed by the same tipi makers who made the tipis for the set of ‘Dances with Wolves." Your tipi is fully furnished, and lets you be even closer to nature without skimping on comfort. These luxurious tipis will provide a unique circular home for you while you help at the Lodge!

    What else ...

    During your time off, there is endless access to outdoor activities ranging from mountain biking to fly fishing, rock climbing to hiking, and more! Because we are surrounded by national forest on three sides of the property, there are countless ways to unwind and relax in nature during your off time.

    When you need a city fix, Colorado Springs and Denver are only an hour and a half drive away! Use this as a base to get to know Colorado and learn more about hospitality too. We highly recommend having your own personal transportation, as you will be cooking for yourself and buying your own food as well. The nearest shops are about 20 miles away.
