There is also an onsite Trout pond, great for beginner fishermen and Arapaho Valley Ranch offers free canoe rentals for guests to use on Little Indian Lake. Located in Grand County and just two hours from Denver, the ranch is surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest, which means this Colorado glamping site has plenty of hiking trails to explore.
