View cabin options and sizes on our Cabins page. Within reason, you can have as many people in your cabin as you are comfortable with.

It is not certain that you will see wildlife. Moose and deer are the most common critters that hang out around Spear-O. The Bighorns are home to black bear, elk, mountain lion, red tail fox, coyotes, bobcats, and hundreds of bird species and smaller mammals.

No. Red Grade Road is challenging, especially to people who do not have experience with mountain driving. It is a county-maintained, gravel road.  The drive is easier with a vehicle designed for driving off of a paved roadway. If Red Grade seems too daunting, consider getting to Spear-O on the longer, smoother route through Ranchester, Dayton, and Burgess Junction. Directions
