Three Forks Shelter

Tarps, sunshades, and group shelters

Living in Colorado with its ample sunshine and sweeping winds has given us plenty of motivation to dream up our own version of a sunshade, thus the Three Forks Shelter was born. Steep wall architecture with removable side walls (sold separately) protect your party from wind and sun and a webbing connection frame that offers additional structural stability, the Three Forks Shelter is a friend to anyone headed to an all-day soccer tournament, rafting the Grand, or needing to keep gear and people out of the elements on a camping trip (fits perfectly over a picnic table).

What’s in a Name?

Doing it right: When you manage 7,000 head of cattle, you’ve got to do it right. Three Forks Ranch sits on the Colorado-Wyoming Border 40 miles north of Steamboat. Historic farming practices at the ranch were focused heavily on hay production, allowing cattle to run on the ranch without a grazing plan, causing massive damage to the headwaters of the Little Snake River and its tributaries. New ranch ownership saw a call to action, resulting in the largest privately funded river restoration project in history. The ranch now boasts itself as the premiere fishing destination of the West.
