The C Lazy U Ranch is nestled in the beautiful Colorado mountains near Rocky Mountain National Park. With over 20,000 acres of varied mountain terrain for hunting, the ranch is home to healthy herds of elk, mule deer, moose, and pronghorn antelope.

C Lazy U, an all-inclusive, year-round guest ranch offers the best of both worlds: high-class amenities and down-home experiences, with luxurious cabins, gourmet meals, and world class service. The outfitting experience is designed to accommodate many hunting interests, from the die-hard hunter to the family hunting experience, we flex to fit your hunting needs.

We operate in a fair-chase environment on predominately private land complimented with 1,000's of acres of private land on the ranch boundaries.

Our goal is to make you leave wanting more, which is backed by our 80% rebooking rate.
