It’s Summer in the Rockies … finally

Hey, I think we may have arrived in summer…..

UPDATED JULY 21, 2019

The ice is gone off the lakes, well at least here at 8100′ anyway.  The higher lakes still have a bit of ice and the snow fields are still claiming Buffalo Pass and the Zirkel Wilderness areas.  Fishing on lakes and streams is turning out to be awesome except for a few that are still experiencing high water.  After talking with CPW, they are working on restocking the lakes in the area.

Campgrounds are plentiful and we have a new RV Park at Sentinel Mountain RV Park located just north of Cowdrey.  Lake John Resort has been busy remodeling the store and is well worth checking out.  Roundup Motel and RV Park as well as Granite Corner are also doing great things for your enjoyment.

How about the Sand Dunes?  Well, what we hear is that it is clear, warm and ready for all you enthusiasts to get out and enjoy.  Whether you’re on a quad or a rail, go out have fun but play responsibly. We want to see your smiling face in at the Moose Creek Cafe for some awesomeness after the playing let’s up.

Keep it safe out there and see you soon…..

A Successful Elk Season

Hello and welcome to MooseCreek. This year saw a huge increase in the number of archery hunters and a plethora of hunters using firearms.  The take was nominal here but the results of big bulls was grand.

Congratulations to all of our winners in the 5 x 5 contest and to those who’s names were drawn for the free dinner in our cow tag contest.  If you didn’t enter, well, be sure that next year when you come out to North Park you stop into the Moose Creek Cafe and pre-register for the contest. You could end up with an awesome Ribeye dinner compliments of the staff.

What a great winter this is in North Park, with opportunities for fun, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and so many photo ops to choose from.

This weekend is the Delaney Buttes Ice Fishing Contest with a grand prize of $1000.  Come on and get your fish on.

Recent activities have been a big hit with a lot of great people coming and enjoying what Walden has to offer. The Ron Sessions Memorial Golf Tournament registered about 90 3 person teams and the weather was very cooperative. Sponsored by the Jackson County Lions Club, this fundraiser allows the Lions to pay out for scholarships, help people who need glasses and enjoy the spirit of Christmas by giving to the children of the community.

Also the Lake John/Cowdrey Lake Ice Fishing Contest brought out 280 plus fisher (men, women, and youth).

Come on and check us out in North Park, where wildlife, the old west, and great food and lodging are waiting. Be sure to stop into the Moose Creek Cafe for friendly chat and great food at great prices.
