Welcome To Adams Lodge
Lodge is a small family owned and operated ranch located adjacent to the White River
National Forest in a gorgeous setting, with some of the best trout fishing and big
game hunting in the Rocky Mountain Region. The ranch is on the Marvine Creek, 32
miles east of Meeker at an elevation of 7500 feet. The roads are maintained all year
for good access to the lodge and cabins. We offer several outfitting services and
your trip may be customized to include the activities that you choose.
In the summer you may stay at the ranch in a cabin and take day trips on horseback
to some of the high mountain lakes for fishing, wildlife watching or just for the
pleasure of a scenic trailride. Our wilderness camp is located on the Marvine Lakes
for those who want to enjoy the wonder of the wilderness and be comfortable staying
in a full service, well equipped camp. For those who really want seclusion, our West
Marvine camp may be just the thing. On a pack trip across the Flat Tops you will
see spectacular wilderness scenery. We can also pack you and your camping gear into
any of several wilderness lakes in the area. Let a llama pack your lunch while you
hike on an interesting day trip.
fall we have archery, muzzleloading and rifle elk hunts in game management unit 24
(Outfitter #1159). You may choose a guided hunt from the lodge or an unguided drop
camp. Either way you will be hunting elk from the White River elk herd, the largest
elk herd in the nation. Bull elk licenses can be purchased over the counter for the
combined rifle seasons. Archery, muzzleloading and antlerless elk licenses for the
rifle season are a draw only. The applications are usually available in February,
the deadline to apply is in April and you will know if you were successful in June.
Area 24 has a four point or better regulation which means that the younger bulls
are not killed and now there are more mature bulls. We have some nice mule deer bucks
in the area during the earlier seasons, but they have often migrated to a lower elevation
by the later seasons.
In the winter our cozy cabins with fireplaces and modern kitchens are pleasant and
comfortable. You can drive to the cabins and ski, snowshoe or snowmobile from your
doorstep to the White River National Forest. A short drive will take you to several
groomed and marked snowmobile trails on the north side of the White River. The trails
on the south side of the river are great for cross country skiing, quiet and uncrowded.
After a day playing in the snow you may relax in the hot tub.
Whatever the season, you will find comfortable accommodations and warm hospitality
at Adams Lodge. Let us show you why we love where we live.
