Buckhorn Camp is located in the mountains west of Fort Collins.
To drive to the camp from I-25 take the Highway 14 Exit (269B) and head west into Fort Collins.
Turn North on US 287 (College Avenue) and follow it as it swings west out of town. Do not take the US 287 Exit to Laramie, but continue 2 miles to LaPorte; look for a rustic restaurant called Vern's on your right.
Turn west at this intersection and cross the Cache La Poudre River and drive through Bellvue.
Continue west (uphill) through scenic Rist Canyon for approximately 12 miles.
When you reach the top of a steep winding section of road, (the Buckhorn Camp sign is on your left) turn south,.
Follow this road for another ½ mile to a closed gate. Don't be fooled by the gates appearance, it isn't locked and is not intended to keep our guests out - just the neighbors cows in!
You're almost there so don't give up now, you only have another 2 miles to go.
Take this last section slowly as it is scenic and in some places rough and narrow.
Keep on the lookout for wildlife and other travelers. It is wise to allow 1 hour from Fort Collins to reach Buckhorn Camp.
Enjoy the drive, as well as your stay. If you need further instructions, please call us at (970) 484-2508.
