Welcome to Rainbow Trout Ranch and Campground!
Hello Anglers and Campers,
We are open for fishing 7 days a week, until Labor Day, from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. You may fish until 5:00 p.m. This allows time to have your fish cleaned and to check out. In the case of inclement weather, please call ahead to our office at 303-838-5025 to be sure we are open.
For those of you who are new to our website: No fishing license is required to fish in our ponds. We accept all major credit cards.
We now have trophy fish in one of our ancillary ponds. Please inquire at the office.
.A lot of work has been completed on the campground. We have both RV and tent sites. There are 50 amp circuits on 14 of the RV sites, and water is available to fill your tanks. A new employee has been hired to handle camping reservations. His name is Phil Johnson, and he can temporarily be reached at 719-342-2240. If you are camping, the fishing hours will be extended each day by arrangements with Phil.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Vince Fisher, Manager
