The Ute Lodge was homesteaded in the 1930’s by Joe Fox who after leaving the military came west to settle in the White River valley. Joe was known for his friendliness, hospitality and wild stories. Today you might find much of the same. From Joe’s day to today it is a place where families come together to get away. The Ute Lodge is now owned by Karl and Mona Maser who celebrated 20 years of ownership summer of 2019! All summer our cabins are filled with guests from all over the US as well as international travelers. One of our favorite things about the summer is our weekly potlucks where we all share an outdoor meal. All of our visitors have a standing invitation to join us around the community campfire at night. From our beautiful private lake (where you can paddle-board, kayak and fish), to immediate access to the Papoose and Crooks Park Trails on National Forest land, as well as the vast variety of wildlife that roams around, you can find what you need here to unplug and get away from it all.

Old Baldy Back-Country Yurt
Breathtaking Remote Wilderness Yurt
Absolutely amazing experience! Highly recommend this stay if you’re looking for a remote wilderness getaway. We planned our stay at Old Baldy Yurt with the hopes of catching late season Fall foliage of the Aspens before they dropped their leaves…we lucked out! Perched atop a mountain with breathtaking views, the yurt is surrounded by towering Aspens, beautiful National forests and open meadows teeming with wildlife (deer, elk, moose), this place is simply incredible. There is a trail located steps from the Yurt making it easy for us to hike for miles and miles without the sight of people or civilization. The host, Karl, went above and beyond to accommodate us during our stay. After striking out on finding an outfitter for a last minute horse back trail ride, Karl volunteered his valuable time and took us on a 2+ hour ride through the Flat Tops of the White River National Forest. During the ride Karl shared with us some of his vast knowledge and insight of the region. A memory that we’ll cherish forever-thanks again Karl!! The Yurt has everything one (or group) could need for a remote/off grid getaway (although we did manage to have cell service at the Yurt). I do recommend a high clearance, 4wd auto to make it up the trail to yurt. The Yurt is an ideal stay for anyone looking for a back country getaway and to be immersed into the wild of Colorado. Close proximity to world class fishing, hunting, trail rides, hiking and much more. We will definitely be back!

Old Baldy Back-Country Yurt
We had such a great time staying at the Old Baldy yurt, hiking down for fishing and paddle boarding and enjoying the amazing views. Extra kudos to the staff, they were so welcoming and helpful! We couldn’t have asked for a better way to close out the summer.

Old Baldy Back-Country Yurt
Weekend stay at the yurt in August
My partner and I had the best time staying at Mona and Karl’s yurt! The check-in process is super easy and the hosts have a wealth of information to share. The road is definitely a doozy but with some clearance and skill you can make it up there no problem- it definitely got easier once you get your first traverse under your belt. The yurt is great with good amenities. Bring any creature comforts you may want for a cozy and well planned time- there’s plenty of room for lugging in gear, blankets, games, etc. We can’t wait to come back!

Home on Wheels
Great location!
Beautiful location with lots of trees, a creek, a lake, animals-domestic, and lots of activities for kids - basketball, Pickleball, badminton, swings, tether all and more. The host was super sweet with lots of information of places to go that were away from the camp as well. I would highly recommend it.

Old Baldy Back-Country Yurt
The Yurt is so comfortable and cozy and I cannot recommend it enough. Definitely make sure you have a 4x4 to get up there, but the drive is totally worth it. It’s off the beaten path and secluded which makes the perfect quiet getaway with great views of the stars at night and beautiful rolling hills during the day. I would be sure to pack blankets ‘just in case’. Mona is a great host as well, a great energy and very approachable. I had zero complaints about my visit and plan to go back in the future. Cannot recommend enough!
