Where to Play

We hope you play at Backbone, but here are some other great options from fair and kind people:

There are so many things to do in Estes Park Colorado. In all honesty, I think it's best to not plan every little detail. Leave room so if you happen upon something that looks fun, you have the time to do it. If you come during peak season though, you will have to plan. Estes Park gets really busy. If you are thinking about an ATV rental or Jeep rental, book a couple weeks in advance. The same goes for cabin rentals or hotel stays. I suggest booking at least 2 months in advance. The hotel and cabin rentals I mentioned above are very sought after accommodations. They usually book up first. There are only a couple hotels in town that are on the lower end scale of quality. However, even those are fine places to stay. There is a noticeable difference though in the things you choose to do in Estes Park. For example, one ATV rental company vs. another one, or horseback riding can be a very different experience from one to the next. For me though, it's all about the people and customer service. When I go on vacation I like to interact with people who truly enjoy my business and meeting new people. Online reviews are a good way to research who you're doing business with. Like most people, I look at the bad reviews as much as the good. I like to see how owners of businesses respond to bad reviews. It says alot about their character and understanding.
