Mountain River Lodge is located in Lake George, CO which is about 37-miles west of Colorado Springs. Lake George sits in the Pike National Forest, west of Ute Pass. The town was first developed in the 1890's as a stage stop but over the years has become known for its world-class trout fishing. Many families have found the vacation of their dreams at Mountain River Lodge and have fallen in with the local attractions including fishing, camping, hiking, and boating. We would love to accommodate your family's next vacation in one of our fabulous cabins and help you build memories of a lifetime.
While the Eleven Mile Canyon and Tarryall Valley provide a fantastic scenic backdrop everywhere you look, the real main attraction is our world-class trout fishing. It's no secret that trout fishing in Colorado is some of the best in the world, Mountain River Lodge puts you right in the center of one of the best streams around. Not only will you be fishing for Cutthroat, Cutbow, and Brown Trout, but also the beautiful Trophy Rainbow trout. Located between the Spinney Mountain Reservoir and the Eleven Mile Canyon Reservoir is the Dream Stream, which is one of the most popular sections of the South Platte River, and is minutes away from Mountain River Lodge.
Whether you're considering your visit in the Spring or Fall, you will love the time spent in the Dream Stream. This fantastic stream earns its name for the size of fish it produces in the Spring and Fall which can exceed the 20-degree mark on a regular basis. Imagine waking up in the morning, just a short ride to the best trout fishing in the world! We are a fisherman's paradise and are excited for you to experience the fantastic fishing firsthand.
