Welcome to Trappers Lake Lodge & Resort!
Rustic, Remote and Hidden Away in the Flat Tops Wilderness
Come visit the "Cradle of the Wilderness"
Trappers Lake Lodge & Resort is located 51 miles southwest of Yampa, 70 miles southwest of Steamboat Springs and 51 miles northeast of Meeker and in the heart of Colorado’s White River National Forest - Flat Tops Wilderness. It is a beautiful drive along the scenic byway to our home in the wilderness. Our restaurant is open to all visitors who want to experience a great meal in a beautiful natural location.
Our resort features quaint log cabin accommodations. Everything you need or want is on-site: cabins, horses, boats, canoes, general store, laundry facilities, bath house, restaurant and a full bar. Relax in a rustic cabin or "rough it" in a tent at one of our Wilderness campsites accessible by foot or on horseback. At 9,600 feet, the air is crisp and clean, the skies are crystal blue and the stars are so bright they light up the heavens!
Come and enjoy some of Colorado’s finest fishing lakes. Trappers Lake is a natural lake created from a volcanic blast long ago. It is 180 feet deep, five miles in circumference and is the natural home of the Greenback Cutthroat. The stream that flows out of Trappers Lake directly in front of our lodge is the North Fork of the White River.
Walk out the door of your cabin directly into the Wilderness. Trappers Lake is 1/8 of a mile from the lodge and cabins. As you're walking up the trail to the lake, you will pass the Wilderness boundary sign. Welcome to the Wilderness!
