About Saratoga

Hot springs, hunting, birdwatching and fishing - Saragota is the perfect place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries in the tranquil embrace of mother nature. Settled in the 1800s, sitting in the shadow of the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountains, the charming lakeside town nestles in the Platte Valley where hundreds of miles of white-foam-gushing freestone rivers flow, and sits beside the Medicine Bow Routt National Forest, where hiking trails abound. During the winter, you can enjoy snowmobiling, a popular pastime in these parts, or fishing, because Saragota boasts the best blue-ribbon trout fishing in the whole of the USA. But people don't merely travel hundreds of miles every year to Saragota for the fishing, they come for the free hot springs, the perfect way to unwind after a strenuous day of hiking! The best places to stay in Saragota include a luxury lodge and spa - a wonderful symbol of Saragota blending rustic tradition with the town's most powerful draw: hot springs.
