The River Forks Inn is located in the small town of Drake, Colorado.
The gateway to the Rockies, the town of Drake provides the best of both worlds. Close to numerous attractions, Drake has still managed to hold onto its small-town charm. A stopping point for travelers since 1905, Drake has long served as a starting point for any trip to the Rockies. Enjoy the quaint and friendly shops and restaurants and see some of the majestic bighorn sheep, which are plentiful in the surrounding mountains. Drake’s location in Big Thompson Canyon, and proximity to Estes Park, make it the ideal starting point for hiking, rock climbing, or simply admiring Colorado’s beautiful natural features.
Halfway between Loveland and Estes Park, staying in Drake makes it easy to avoid the crowds and remain close to all the biggest attractions.
