Kit Carson Lodge is open for the 2022 season.
We look forward to welcoming all our new and returning guests! Our cabins are filling up quickly, so be sure to get your reservation in early.
I have worked hard maintaining and bringing improvements to Kit Carson lodge the past ten seasons. In fact improvements are now underway keeping the lodge compliant with State and federal regulations. You will see them while visiting the 2022 season. Providing improvements is now being challenged by inflation, the lack of employees, and supply chain issues. The past couple of winters the lodge has endured wind storm damage, the loss of a life and hardships resulting from the Caldor fire. Thankfully the lodge is still standing for us to enjoy. In order for the lodge to survive the economic losses and provide new improvements, I will be increasing the preservation fee to $25.00 per night for new reservations made starting May 5th 2022. The preservation and continued improvements of Kit Carson lodge will ensure a more enjoyable place to stay for generations to come.
