Murphy’s offers activities designed for youngsters and adults. Whether you take a dip in our pool or our giant hot tub, play one of a dozen outdoor games like volleyball, shuffleboard, bocce ball or tether ball, your group is sure to have fun. Our guests continually thank us for having these games available for no charge on our expansive property. Other guests in your group may want to simply walk around the vast expanse of Lake Estes and enjoy the quiet beauty of the high mountain lake.
