The Historic Allis Ranch offers 150 acres of beautiful private pasture land, and offers easy access to the trails of Spruce Meadows Open Space. Bring your mountain bikes, horses or hiking boots and explore endless miles of trails that wind through rolling hills, pastures, forest and creeks, then retire to your own private tent to enjoy the sunset from a lounge chair on the deck. Later on, read a book or share stories with a friend underneath the stars by the warmth of the flickering fire pit.
Our timber framed outfitter tent sits on top of a wooden deck, which looks over rolling grasslands to the front range beyond. Enjoy views of Pikes Peak and stunning sunsets over the Front Range to the west. Relax in the Adirondack chairs on the deck while sipping on a cool drink.
The tent comes with everything you need to be comfortable in nature. Lay in the queen size memory foam bed and watch the wind lap at the canvas on a lazy afternoon, light up the fire pit and watch the flames dance under a night sky, or stream your favorite tunes on the tent's Bluetooth sound system.
Time feels slow here, and while it's easy to relax, the land is far from sleepy. As an historic working ranch that is right along the I-25 corridor, the Allis Ranch is a mixture of old and new. 100 years ago, there used to be a train stop at the Allis Ranch, and the northbound and southbound tracks of the BNSF railroad run along property to this day. You will hear the low rumble of the train engines as they pass by, and you can watch the freeway lights passing by in the evening as you lounge by the fire pit on the deck. From spring to August, grazing cattle and their calves graze in the pasture around the tent.
The Allis Ranch is adjacent to Spruce Meadows and Spruce Mountain Open Space, which together boast nearly 2000 acres of spectacular natural land. These open spaces are traversed by many miles of trails, and cover a wide range of topographies, from rolling hills, grasslands and creeks, to a large mesa with interesting rock features and a thick evergreen forest with lush undergrowth.
The tent itself comfortably sleeps 2, and the corral next to the tent accommodates 2 horses. Near the main tent is a smaller bathroom tent, containing a camp toilet and a heated shower. A double saddle rack is also provided.
Drinking water for guests is provided. Guests must bring their own horse feed. Horses can be watered at Carpenter Creek, or may drink the water provided in the corral trough.
This is a trek-in and trek-out experience on a Colorado working ranch. There is no vehicle access to the campsite. The campsite is 1 mile from the ranch house parking area. From the parking area, guests may hike, bike or ride horses back to the camp site. Dwight and Suzanne will transport and drop off any larger items, such as bags, coolers, feed and drinking water for you.
You can buy beef and honey that is produced at the Allis Ranch, or ask Dwight and Suzanne about joining their raw cow milk and raw goat milk herd shares.
Please let us know what time you will arrive for check-in so that Dwight and Suzanne can plan their ranch duties accordingly. The Allis Ranch is easy to find as it is right off of The Greenland Rd. exit from I-25. There is ample parking for vehicles and horse trailers on the ranch itself.
The tent is situated 1 mile from The Allis Ranch house in the north pasture. Guests can park at the ranch, but cannot drive to the tent site itself. Guests may access the tent site by hiking, mountain bike, or horse. The ranchers, Dwight and Suzanne, will let you through the gates as you come and go.
While drinking water is provided for guests at the tent, guests are responsible for bringing their own food and other beverages. Dwight and Suzanne will transport large items, such as coolers, horse feed, etc. to the campsite.
There is excellent cellphone reception through all major carriers in the area.

Life is an adventure.
I love to travel and to climb Colorado's 14er's. I also love people. I'm curious to meet new people, see new places, and learn ways of understanding the world.
Over the last two years, my wife and I skydived into our beach wedding with half of our wedding guests, we took a 3 month trip through Australia and southeast Asia, and we're currently expecting our first child.
The adventure continues :)
