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.
