With hundreds of thousands of acres of National Forests, thousands of miles of trails, and more than 300 lakes to be explored in the surrounding Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forest, and with a variety of tours and rentals available right from the cabin site, guests will enjoy plenty of activity options in both the summer and the winter.
In the summer, guests can go canoeing, kayaking, row boating, stand-up paddleboarding, hydro-biking, and peddle boating on the Grand Mesa's many lakes. Rentals for each of these activities are available right next to the cabin site at the beach of Deep Ward Lake. Guests can paddle or pedal out onto the latter, or they can take their watercraft to any other lake of their choosing. The kayaks and paddle boards are inflatable, so they are particularly easy to transport and guests can even carry them on a hike to one of the mesa's more remote lakes, where they can then go fishing as well. A variety of trout can be caught in the mesa's lakes, including brook, brown, native cutthroat, rainbow, and Snake River cutthroat.
During the summer months, guests can play lawn games, including horseshoes, bocce, and frisbee golf. There is also a communal hammock area overlooking Deep Ward Lake. Year-round guests can borrow board games and DVDs from the office; guests just need to bring their own DVD player or laptop.
