Bar Lazy J Guest Ranch is nestled in a peaceful valley along the banks of the Colorado River and is considered the oldest continuously operating Colorado dude ranch. Since 1912 our family-friendly ranch has been welcoming guests for recreation and relaxation. That's over 100 years of sharing lasting memories!
