The Town

Red River An Extraordinary Place

In the old days people came to Red River in search of gold. Now people come to town in search of different treasures the beauty of nature, memorable times with family and friends, a slower pace, and four seasons of fantastic outdoor adventure.

This is a town like no other. Nestled in the Carson National Forest, high in the southern-most tip of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, it’s far from the noise and congestion of the city. Red River has no traffic jams, no sirens, no pollution. In the silence of this mountain serenity you can hear the buzz of the hummingbird - the sound of water as a stream courses down from the mountain. On a winter night, it can be so quiet you can hear the sound of snow falling.

Red River is a family town where people can still go to the parks and take a walk in the woods. The people who live and work in Red River go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Hospitality and mountain magic are what Red River is all about.
