  • Comfortable, well appointed home

    "We had a wonderful stay at the Riverdance home. It is well-appointed, clean, comfortable and conveniently located. We're into fishing--as are the owners, judging by the fish-friendly decor. This roomy, rustic house is a winner."

  • Nice home

    "Nice home, comfortable furniture, lots of cozy blankets. The loft is huge and the kids enjoyed this sleeping area. This home is at a pretty high altitude, over 8000 feet, and some members of our party had trouble sleeping this high up and suffered from some high altitude sickness."

  • Awesome!

    "Riverside Meadows is an unbelievable place. My husband and I found it to be above and beyond any expectations we had. Fritz , Paula and Sadie are some of the friendliest people we have ever met. The cabins are spotless and beautifully built. The setting is magical. We are so glad Fritz talked us into trying the river kayak. We had a blast! Fritz was beyond accommodating as to put in and pick up. We couldn't have asked for more. We have already booked two more nights for next month and plan to book many more. Thanks Fritz, Paula and Sadie for a wonderful time!"

South Fork Travel Tips

When you decide to stay in South Fork cabins, you are surrounding yourself with two million acres of national forest land. South Fork, Colorado is located between the San Juan and Rio Grande forests and along the Rio Grande River. The setting is beautiful no matter what season you choose to visit but it is an especially popular area in the winter because of the skiing. South Fork has an elevation of over 8,000 feet and the ski areas receive an average of 400 inches of snow each year.

Great Fishing Right Outside South Fork Cabins

South Fork lodging puts you close to some of the top locations for fly fishing in the country. The upper portion of the Rio Grande River is known for trophy size trout. Whether you are after browns or rainbow trout, they are in abundance here. The scenery is unlike any other spot for fly fishing as well. Part of the fun of fishing the Rio Grande is the beauty along the river which ranges from a small, quick moving stream to long, wide flats.

Outdoor Activities Are in Abundance

There is much more to do than just great fishing when you stay in South Fork cabins. During the warm weather seasons, hiking, biking, hunting and horseback riding are popular activities. In the winter months, the focus turns to skiing and snowboarding. You can find excellent ski areas close to South Fork lodging including the Wolf Creek Ski Area which boasts the most snow and best powder in Colorado.

Check out the Silver Thread Scenic Byway

One of the top things to do while staying in South Central Colorado vacation rentals is to go for a drive on a mountain road that offers spectacular vistas. The Silver Thread Scenic Byway is the path miners used to take during the gold rush days to get into South Fork.
