Our passion is outdoors and relaxation
Tomahawk Guest Ranch

‚ÄčWhat is there to do nearby?

  • We have lots of prime fishing spots nearby.  There are plenty of recreational trails nearby, so feel free to bring your "toys" with you.  Blue Mesa Reservoir is 30 minutes away and has many boat ramps, rentals, and docks nearby.  Gunnison and Lake City have plenty of additional activities such as horseback riding, jeep tours, snowmobile and ATV rentals, hunting, outfitter, and fishing guided tours, rafting, rock climbing, etc.  Crested Butte and Monarch, which are about 1 1/2 hours away, also provide ski resorts.  Our friendly staff is available to assist you with booking any of these activities.


What hunting units are you located in?

  • We are in units 66 & 67.  Tomahawk Guest Ranch is happy to host hunters through all 4 hunting seasons.  We are open to all hunters from archery through rifle.


What kind of animals are nearby to hunt?

  • Elk, moose, bear, deer, big horn sheep, and mountain lion.  We do require that guests hunting any of these animals secure the correct state of Colorado licensure and follow all state wildlife regulations.  Any questions?  Just ask, we are happy to help.  


Do you have any picnic tables?

  • Yes.  We have 4 big ones and 3 small ones.  Our lodge is also available to our larger parties to cook and gather in.  Guests can feel free to cook in it at any time, as long as they clean up after themselves. 


Is fishing allowed on the property?

  • Yes.  The Cebolla Creek is literally right out the back door of the cabins and we do allow fishing.  However, there are some areas we restrict fishing, due to our "pet" fish near our bridge.  When you come, you will be given a tour and all boundaries will be clearly explained.  You will need a state fishing license if you plan on fishing.  Tomahawk Guest Ranch does allow you to keep whatever you catch out of the river according to the Department of Wildlife regulations.  Fishing in restricted areas at Tomahawk Guest Ranch will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the property with no refund.


What are some items I should bring during my stay?

  • A flashlight, drinking water, clothing (think layers), rain gear (windproof & waterproof), sneakers or sandals (for around the campground), hiking shoes or boots (for around the wilderness), water shoes (for the fishing & the river), sunscreen, lip balm with sunscreen, bug repellent, swimsuit, sunglasses, water bottle, compass/GPS, binoculars, camera, food (unless you are eating in one of the nearby towns), a cooler, a light jacket, and any outdoor gear (fishing pole, kayak, bicycles, ATV's, snowmobiles, dirt bikes, etc.)  Each of our cabins have bathrooms, showers, and kitchens that are fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, toaster, dinnerware, glassware, coffee mugs, pots and pans, silverware, large bowls, measuring cups and spoons, knives, spatulas, bottle openers, grilling utensils, linens, blankets, towels, toilet paper, dish washing soap, and coffeepots.  So really all you do need is food and clothing.


Are you pet friendly?

  • Yes.  Well-behaved and friendly pets are always welcome.  We do not charge extra for pets.  Any sign of aggression will be immediate grounds for removal from the premises with no refund.  We ask that you be mindful of your pet and clean up after them accordingly.


Are you 420 Friendly?

  • Yes.  As with any other legal substance in the State of Colorado, we do allow people following the state's rules & regulations (ages 21 and up, per Amendment 64 of the Colorado Constitution) to enjoy and legally consume THC substances.  We do not supply or sell it.  We ask that our guests use common sense when bringing it on the property and that you be respectful of the property and other guests who may not wish to be around it, and, of course, please use discretion. 


Do you have internet access?

  • Yes, we have a guest computer set up in the lodge with unlimited access. Wi-fi available at an extra daily charge due to limited data! We are in the mountains!


What is the maximum number of people per cabin?

  • The total occupancy of a cabin is 2 - 5 people, depending on which cabins you rent.  The entire site and lodge is available for rent, however, which can accommodate up to 60 people.  It is perfect for large gatherings, such as weddings, reunions, birthday parties, special events, etc.


Do you have a pool?

  • No, we do not have a pool, however we do have a hot tub and swimming is allowed in the river at your own risk.


Do you have a restaurant?

  • We do not have a restaurant on the property.  Fortunately we love to eat and can make recommendations for Lake City, Montrose, and Gunnison restaurants to suit your taste.  Tomahawk does have charcoal and propane grills and dual smokers available for our guests to use.  You will need to bring your own charcoal and wood chips.  We do provide the propane, however. 

Are the cabins on the river?

  • Yes the cabins are on the Cebolla River. All the cabins have a back door that opens directly to Cebolla Creek and are about 20 feet from the river.


Is there a place provided for a campfire?

  • Yes, there are 3 fire pits on the property.  We provide firewood for all the fire pits as well as all of the wood-burning stoves in some of the cabins.  Throughout the year, there may be Colorado state-mandated fire bans in effect; during those times, we will have a sign posted at the fire ring preventing any fires from being built.


How far away are you from town?

  • Tomahawk Guest Ranch is located directly between Lake City and Gunnison, Colorado.  We are about 45 minutes (35 miles) from each.  Please remember this when packing for your trip for extra things, such as groceries and supplies.  There is also no cell phone service at the Ranch, but we do have a landline phone available for our guests as well as wi-fi in the lodge. 


Do you allow RV's or campers?

  • Yes.  We have one setup area which will accommodate a 30-foot long RV, but there is no sewer hookup.  We also allow these in other areas for very special circumstances, such as weddings or reunions, but please keep in mind we do not have all of the hook ups.  Please call us to discuss how we might be able to meet your needs..


Do you have a shooting range?

  • Yes there is a shooting range on the property.  Guests will want to bring their own targets, bullets, arrows, etc.  We ask that you clean up after yourselves.  We also ask that you exercise caution, discretion, and extend consideration to other guests when using this amenity.


Is the water drinkable in the cabins?

  • No.  The water is treated, so it is good for bathing and washing.  We supply plenty of fresh drinking water in gallon jugs in your cabin refrigerator.  The water in the lodge, however is drinkable and you may use as much as you need.


What do you charge for weddings or large events?

  • Every event is different, and we understand this.  No matter what the event, there is a basic fee to rent the ranch--$500 per night with a 2 night minimum.  However, there may be additional costs for extra services you may require.  When you call to book the event, this will be discussed in further details with you.
