105 West Ranch

4 sites · Lodging101 acres · Goldfield, CO
A mountaintop ranch in Colorado that sits below the famous Colorado “14er”, Pikes Peak. This property sits on top of a mountain at an elevation of nearly 10,000ft and features 3 unique Glamping sites! The ranch features a tiny cabin, geodesic dome tent and platform canvas tent. The sites sit on 100 acres of private, pristine Colorado mountain land that offers over 3 miles of private hiking trails and unrivaled views in all directions. A large, mature aspen grove covers most of the property and views to the south stretch over 100 miles! Despite being on a mountain, over 70% of the property sits on level or gently sloping ground making it perfect for camping spots and events. The Eastern edge borders public land, infinitely expanding access and hiking opportunities. It’s only 1,500 feet from a large reservoir and river- both are accessible by hiking or an easy 5 minute drive. 105 West Ranch also has some deep and unique history. Our area was originally surveyed in 1881. After that, miners came through in the late 1800s and dug prospector pits looking for gold. Many of these pits and even some old tin cans from miner's camps are still visible on the property today. In 1931, the area was re-surveyed with more accuracy. In 1936, the President of the United States, FDR, granted a land patent (homestead) of 632 acres to homesteader. Part of this 632 acre homestead granted by the President was what is now 105 West Ranch. Fast forward nearly 100 years. My wife, Rachel, and I bought this property in 2019, fulfilling a life-long dream of owning our own land. Rachel and I live for the outdoors, we work in the outdoor industry and spend every chance we get exploring our beautiful state with our two dogs. As a 4th generation Coloradan, it's been a lifelong dream to own a (relatively) small part of the state my family has called home since the late 1800s. Now that we own our own piece of Colorado heaven we want to share the unforgettable experience, memories and beauty of our property with others looking for an escape from the city.

Camping near Pueblo guide

Overview

Pueblo sits in the high desert area in southern Colorado on the edge of the Great Plains. It’s one of Colorado’s most culturally diverse towns and offers year-round outdoor recreation opportunities, namely water sports. The one-mile Historic Arkansas Riverwalk is a downtown highlight, where you can not only enjoy the beauty of the river along the path but also watch kayakers paddling the rapids at the Pueblo Whitewater Park. Campers will find overnight options outside of town at Lake Pueblo and in the surrounding national forest. 

Where to go

Downtown Pueblo

Downtown Pueblo is filled with restaurants and museums. It’s also a popular destination for kayakers, considering one of Colorado’s best whitewater rivers flows right through town. The park spans nearly a half-mile of the Arkansas River and features man-made rapids and drops. You can find several RV parks on the outskirts of town.

Lake Pueblo State Park

Located just west of town, Lake Pueblo State Park is a popular spot for water sports. When the reservoir is full, there are some 60 miles of shoreline and over 4,600 surface acres of water, meaning that despite the lake’s popularity, it never feels overwhelmingly crowded. Two full-service marinas rent jet skis, motor boats, and paddleboards, and the campground offers nearly 400 campsites for both tents and RVs.

Gold Belt Tour National Scenic Byway

The Gold Belt Tour National Scenic Byway is a 131-mile scenic drive between Canon City and Cripple CreekColorado. The route passes numerous mining ruins, historic sites, and outdoor recreation areas as it retraces the old supply routes between some of Colorado’s biggest gold rush towns including FlorissantVictorCañon City, and Florence. It’s a great option for history buffs and campers will find overnight options along the byway.

Great Sand Dunes National Park

Set two hours southwest of Pueblo, Great Sand Dunes National Park is one of America’s newest national parks, home to the highest sand dunes in North America, where visitors come to hike and sled. Campers can stay at the park’s Pinon Flats Campground and wake up right at the base of the dunes.

When to go

Pueblo’s mild year-round climate makes it an excellent destination any time of the year. The town is often overlooked as a Colorado outdoor destination, so it’s a great option in summer when crowds flock to more popular mountain towns. That being said, Lake Pueblo does see its share of visitors in summer, so campground reservations are strongly recommended. Pueblo is also home to the Colorado State Fair, which runs for two weeks in late August and early September. 

Know before you go

  1. Pueblo is known for its Mexican food, so make sure to try the city’s signature dish: the slopper, an open-faced cheeseburger smothered in spicy green chile sauce. 
  2. Head to the city’s Nature and Wildlife Discovery Center for pleasant hiking trails along the Arkansas River. 
  3. The Royal Gorge of the Arkansas River is one of the most scenic stretches of the river, and rafting trips are offered from outfitters in Pueblo.
