Gateway Canyons Resort & Spa - Buttes & Dinosaur Fossils in the Red Rock CountryGateway Canyons  
Resort & Spa

Gateway Canyons Resort is located near the Utah border in Palisade, Western Colorado. This peaceful town is renowned for its peach orchards and derives its name from the adjacent cliffs. The towering Palisade is an isolated hill with steep sides, stretching three miles (4.9 km) in length.

Gateway Canyons chose this breathtaking location, with cliffs, mesas, deep rugged canyons, and a flat desert in the heart of Red Rock Country, to build a village-like resort.

The resort's architecture draws inspiration from the rugged beauty of the American Southwest. The buildings are seamlessly integrated into the majestic natural surroundings of the Colorado Plateau.

Located at an altitude of 4,500 ft (1,372 meters), summer days can be hot, while the nights can be chilly enough to require a pullover.
