Our Estes Park family reunion cabins are situated along the picturesque Lake Estes. Not only do the cabins feature panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains, the water’s proximity also provides easy access to activities, especially during summer months.

Family Friendly Activities in Estes Park
No matter the season, there are a host of activities in Estes Park that will keep the whole family entertained. Whether it’s a jaunt on cross country skis over the snow-covered trails, family sledding and tubing, boating on Lake Estes, or hiking on a stunning trail in Rocky Mountain National Park, the scenery is bound to occupy and inspire.
In winter, Estes Park becomes a snow-covered outdoor playground, perfect for families to enjoy. Sleds are available in downtown gear shops, which can easily be picked up for a day on the gentle slopes. Within Rocky Mountain National Park, Hidden Valley is the only area where sledding is permitted. This former ski area has been converted into a sledding zone. On the weekends, a warming hut with picnic tables is available. Enjoy some good old-fashioned sledding in the Hidden Valley area of Rocky Mountain National Park during your family reunion! Another popular family activity in winter is snow shoeing. Even with no experience, snow shoeing has a faster learning curve than skiing, and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. The former ski trails above the sledding area can be used for snow shoeing, as can most any trail within the park bounds.
Ice skating is also a great activity for the whole family and is available during winter months at Trout Haven as well as the YMCA of the Rockies. Bundle up the family and spend some time making cherished memories on these outdoor rinks! Both locations offer onsite skate rentals.
Winter or summer, there are so many ways for your family to enjoy time spent together in Estes Park. During summer months, the sun warms the air and the sparkling Lake Estes stands as in invitation for some playtime on the water. The Lake Estes Marina offers a variety of rentals that your family can enjoy, such as kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, canoes, and pontoon boats. Situated at the confluence of the Big Thompson River and Fall River, and home to two lakes, Estes Park also offers great fishing opportunities. The marina offers rods and reels for rent, and there are also a number of private ponds in the area that offer fishing opportunities where you pay by what you catch.
Of course, Estes Park is home to a vast network of hiking trails both within and outside the National Park boundaries, with many trails featuring safe, family-friendly routes in achievable distances. Many forest trails are especially stunning in the fall, when the leaves are ablaze with golds, oranges, and reds, and temperatures are perfect for an exerting hike. There is no better way to connect with loved ones during a family reunion than by unplugging and getting outside to enjoy meaningful moments together!
