Twin Rivers Cabins and RV Park was formerly known as Twin Rivers Guest Ranch and has had a long and colorful history. In the early 1930’s, Twin Rivers had an open-air pavilion that served as the local “hot spot” for weekend dances. Prior to that it was host to the Ute Indians as a summer campground in Colorado, most likely because of the cool shade the enormous cottonwood trees on our property provide and easy access to the Conejos river.
Antonito, our nearest town, (and county seat of Conejos County), has a unique history. Before the arrival of the narrow gauge railroad Antonito was called San Antonio Junction because of its proximity to the confluence of the San Antonio and Conejos rivers. Initially settled by sheep herders, Antonito grew steadily as a regional hub for farming and ranching activity. The community of Antonito continues to grow having distinguished itself as an example of how rural people can come together during times when outside forces attempt to alter perceptions about it’s identity. The Colorado Trust highlights how the process works very well.
Site of the oldest church in Colorado, Our Lady of Guadalupe, the townspeople of Antonito have devotedly maintained the church which continues to welcome visitors the world over.
In 2015 we added a horse corral for horseman and horsewomen to board their equines while visiting the area. As well we installed a huge, 10,000 sq ft. Dog Park so guests can let Fido out for a run!
Practically a historic landmark itself, Twin Rivers Cabins and RV Park’s 12-acre campground offers quiet solace for those who wish to have a home base for exploring Southern Colorado’s vast and wild San Juan National Forest, arguably regarded by many as the most beautiful part of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
