Croll’s Cabin at Vallecito Lake near Durango, Co

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 07-06-2013


2013 fishing trip 012Need a place to just get away or do some fishing or horseback riding. Bob Croll’s cabins are nice, stocked with all you need except food…It is nice and quiet, wonderful views and the fish are a good size. Last year at Platoro, the fishing seemed to be a little better but the fish were smaller. The good thing about the Croll cabins, they are right on the water. At Platoro, you have to drive a ways to fish if other than river fishing. AT Vallecito, you have to drive a ways to 4 wheel. That helps make it quieter  and less dusty at Vallecito but a little unhandy for some of the boys. It all worked out and we had a wonderful time. Click on the picture to enlarge it. Give the Croll’s a call if you are looking to get away. E. V. Pete Hester

Where’s the forest? There are no trees. And I always dreamed of Colorado (and New Mexico) as the Land of the Simmering Aspen. That word picture is about all I remember about all the Zane Grey books I use to read. Pete needs similar word pictures in his books, then they will be read, and read, and read, like Zane Grey. Is Croll’s Cabins affiliated with Interval International or RCI? We need to exchange in order to get there. Will they except time share exchanges at all. Too bad!

More pictures to follow which will include some trees. Yes, there are many, spruce, fir, pine, aspen and others that I don’t know. Believe me they are there. As far as reading my books, that’s optional…if you do fine, if not, that’s fine, too. They are here for those who wish to read them. Crollcabins.com can tell you what you are asking…I cannot. It may be too quiet for you folks. Pete
