Overnight Camping Trip: Which to Choose and What to Bring

August 19, 2019

Located in the beautiful Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests, Latigo Ranch is surrounded by miles of Colorado camping trails. We take advantage of our situation and scenery on a daily basis, but once a week visitors have an extra special opportunity: the High Meadows Overnight. This horseback camping trip occurs every Wednesday during our summer season. Our property offers some of the best camping in Colorado, so book your stay today for an authentic mountain experience.

Guided Camping Trips

During the day at Latigo Ranch, you’re free to take solo expeditions through our trails. However, this overnight pack trip is for groups and is guided by our knowledgeable staff. Wranglers will tend to your horses as you set up your tent, so you don’t have to worry about being an expert yourself. Beginner camping trips can be hard to come by, but the Latigo Ranch staff welcomes guests of all skill levels. We do require that you have good control of your horse before attending this one-of-a-kind event, so take advantage of our arena and trail riding lessons early in the week. The lessons are fun and effective! If you’re a more experienced rider, our staff will give you the space you need to be challenged. 

Because we take a new route and set camp at a different site each week, you’ll find a new adventure each time you visit Latigo Ranch. It’s the best camping in Colorado!

Children’s Packhorse Trip

In order to join us on the High Meadows Overnight horseback camping trip, kids must be at least eleven years old and have good control of their horse. We don’t want the kiddos to miss out during their stay, so we’ve designed an overnight "Ute Scouts" trip just for them. These beginner camping trips occur each Thursday after lunch. It’s the perfect activity for little cowgirls and cowboys. Instead of setting up tents, the youngsters will sleep in tipis for some extra excitement. To attend without a parent, kids must be six to ten years old, but our younger guests may still participate as long as an adult joins them.

Best Camping in Colorado

Our horses, Colorado camping trails, and staff aren’t the only things that make this trip special. All meals are included during the excursion. You’ll work up quite an appetite while riding through the forest, and we’ll provide tasty, authentic outdoor meals to satisfy your hunger and ensure you’re energized for the ride back. Come explore the breathtaking Colorado landscape with Latigo Ranch.
