A Peek at the New Cresto Ranch Tented Camp

I recently got to visit Cresto Ranch on assignment for Glamping.com to check out the new safari-style tented camp that opened this summer. You can read my review of Cresto Ranch for Glamping.com blog here.

For my blog readers I wanted to share some additional images of the Cresto Ranch tents.


Some of the lovely scenery around Cresto Ranch

Cresto Ranch is located in Colorado’s scenic San Juan mountains. Telluride has the closest airport (although I flew into Durango & drove… it’s a pretty drive).

There are eight tents on the Cresto Ranch property. While I had zero bars on my mobile phone, Cresto Ranch’s tents all come with wifi and an en-suite bathroom. I’m at an age where I appreciate good bedding and and the bed (and bedding) was comfy (and toasty warm).

The tents themselves are very comfortable, and have a nice outdoor deck with lounge chairs and a table.

The bathrooms at Cresto Ranch are impressive. Flash heaters provide plenty of water so you’re not deprived of bathing facilities.

Having modern comforts doesn’t detract from the experience. You’re still immersed in the Colorado wilderness and it still feels like camping when you wake up on a chilly mountain morning. It totally doesn’t suck to be able to warm up by flicking on your gas stove with the flick of a switch.
