About Us

Our Story


Cougar Ridge creates an environment for our guests to seek adventure, have learning activities and just relax!

Over a span of more than 50 years and through several generations, our family visited Torrey, the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park. We fell in love with the serenity and natural beauty of the region and purchased the 40-acre + property on which Cougar Ridge Lodge and the Casitas now sit. A short time after, we built our Ranch House among red rock cliffs. Later we would go on to construct world-class facilities in one of the most remote and scenic regions of the country.


The Lodge is a sandstone masterpiece! Constructed from only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship, it exudes 5-star comfort and is perfect for families and groups. A 2-night minimum stay is required.

Luxury  Casitas

Our new Casitas offer guests looking for a short-term stay option a chance to enjoy our scenic property. Don’t let their smaller size fool you; they feature spectacular views and the same quality and craftsmanship of the Lodge.

The Property

Our unique 40-acre + property was purchased and designed after our family spent many years frequenting the area. Now, it’s home to the Lodge and our Casitas, as well as a range of activities and spectacular views in our surrounding area. Check out our gallery to see more!


Come and enjoy everything we have to offer, you won’t be disappointed.
