Welcome to the beautiful and majestic Poudre Canyon!
The Trading Post Resort is open year round and is located in the scenic Poudre Canyon approximately 45 miles west of Fort Collins, Colorado. We have 13 cabins available for rent and also have a small store on site with souvenirs, fishing supplies, and groceries.
We are just a hop, skip, and a jump from approximately 70 miles of the Poudre River to choose your favorite fishing hole, to explore or hike, or to just relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Six miles up the canyon are various lakes that all provide excellent fishing opportunities, including many high altitude lakes. Hundreds of miles of scenic hiking trails, ORV trails, cross country ski/snowshoe trails, snowmobile trails, and downhill/snowboarding opportunities are within close proximity of the resort as well.
Along with the many different types of trees, wild flowers, and other flora, the canyon also offers many opportunities to spot wildlife. Deer, elk, big horn sheep, bear, fox, porcupines, bob cats, and the occasional mountain lion can all be spotted here. Moose are common visitors to our property and can also be seen along the highway, up on Cameron Pass, and on the way to Walden. Golden eagles, bald eagles, osprey, hawks, stellar jays, and hummingbirds are just some of the many birds that call the canyon home.
Whether you are seeking a quiet place to hike or picnic by sparkling lakes, streams, and rivers, a tour of the scenic Cache La Poudre River, fishing along the river or in some of the most popular fishing lakes in Colorado, the Trading Post Resort offers our patrons an opportunity to experience Colorado’s scenic outdoors and wildlife.
