Play on The Lake

We at the Lodge refer to it simply as “The Lake.” It is the go-to quick vacation spot for locals and visitors. It is a great place to catch some rays, do a little waterskiing, hike the surrounding countryside, and have an all-around awesome time. […]

Photographing the Wonder

Some of the best nature photography in the world comes from Southern Utah. Zion, Capitol Reef, and Bryce Canyon National Parks are prime locations for professional and amateur photographers alike. We, at the Lodge at Red River Ranch, are supporters of both art and adventure. […]

The Entrada Institute

If you’ve just spent a long day exploring Capitol Reef National Park, hiking, four-wheeling, or driving around southern Utah, you’ll probably want to unwind and spend the evening relaxing. If our basement game room isn’t for you, we have another suggestion — spend the evening at the Entrada Institiute.

Wild Horses of Southern Utah

Only two hours away from Red River Ranch, you can visit the Warm Springs Resource Area Wild Horse Preserve — home to approximately 170 mustangs, who roam freely on 330,000 acres of herd management area.

We are sure Burr Trail is one of the best scenic routes in Southern Utah. The trail starts in Boulder, Utah and winds 68 miles into the most beautiful backcountry imaginable. The Burr Trail ends at Bullfrog, Utah, near Lake Powell. The Lodge at Red […]

Dixie National Forest for Hikers

Dixie National Forest is the largest forest in Utah, stretching 170 miles and enclosing more than two million acres. The forest has several distinct botanical divisions. At high elevations, large pine and aspen grow in the cool mountain air. Lower down, juniper and pinion pines […]

The Velvet Ridge

The Red River Ranch backs onto the dramatic cliffs of Velvet Ridge, which extends for miles in both directions from the Lodge. Not only is the ridge beautiful, its appearance seems to constantly change throughout the day as the sun transverses the sky.

Photo Opportunites

The Lodge at Red River Ranch is a photographer’s paradise — blue skies, a meandering river, and giant cottonwoods. Our backdrop is the rugged, red cliffs of Velvet Ridge. In the foreground, bison roaming in green fields. But before you head out to conquer every picturesque scene from here to Zion National Park, we have a few tips.
