With April showers giving way to May flowers and the splendor of Colorado’s warm-weather season, Dunton Destinations announces the reopening of Dunton River Camp for the season starting June 1, 2021. The seasonal tented camp will welcome the summer season with a new bar, Barbara’s Bar, a re-imagined Farm House lodge, and a pre-pandemic booking model welcoming individual tent bookings and buyouts. In addition to the physical upgrades to the property, Dunton River Camp will also play host to wellness and adventure activations that showcase the resort’s stunning location on the banks of the Dolores River in the San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Rockies.
Named after the woman who built the bar and other projects around Dunton, Barbara’s Bar at Dunton River Camp is an inviting lounge outfitted in Dunton's signature rustic-chic décor. It is the perfect place for relaxing after a day of fly fishing, mountain biking, or lounging in the fresh air. The newly built space features a wood-burning fireplace, plush seating, and pool and chess tables to enjoy while sipping on one of Dunton's signature cocktails or a glass of wine from one of the property's award-winning wine lists. Barbara’s Bar is a new addition to Dunton River Camp’s original 19th-century Farm House, which serves as the property’s main lodge and restaurant and has undergone a renovation to match the design and decor of the newly added bar and lounge.
To celebrate the 2021 summer season, Dunton River Camp will also offer a curated collection of experiences that showcase the property’s exquisite location for outdoor adventures, award-winning food and wine, impeccable hospitality, and nurturing wellness offerings. From one-off culinary workshops to special holiday celebrations and themed packages, guests will be delighted by the opportunity to combine and enjoy various passions and interests into one unforgettable experience:
