Shooting Sportsman Endorsed Lodges - Castle Valley 2022
Castle Valley Outdoors makes a perfect getaway for family, friends and upland hunters.
Jim Fauver, Foreman at Castle Valley Outdoors, gets incredible views from his “office window” each day, and bird hunters can enjoy the same scenery as they chase pheasants and chukars. And with more than 12,000 acres of high-desert landscape surrounding the lodge, the operation has plenty of space for big groups, small groups and family outings. Here are a few things that Fauver thought prospective guests might find interesting.
1. Castle Valley Outdoors was founded in 2004.
2. Pheasants are the most frequently harvested birds.
3. The lodge welcomes hunting parties ranging from 1 to 17.
Did You Know?
The property’s 12,340 acres consist of wheatgrass fields, river bottoms, majestic buttes and classic high-desert landscape. Early September through March is the season when lodge guides and their German shorthaired pointers take guests on no-limit hunts for pheasants and chukars.
The luxurious hunting lodge, with its laid-back Western atmosphere and decor, spans 12,000 square feet and offers 17 king-size beds and private baths. At its founding, Castle Valley Outdoors initially hosted only corporate retreats, but it quickly developed into a wingshooting destination for private groups of serious upland hunters. The biggest non-shooting uses of the lodge are off-season weddings and family reunions.
Castle Valley is situated near several incredible recreation areas—including Arches, Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks; Goblin Valley State Park and the San Rafael Swell Recreation Area—and the Castle Valley staff can arrange ATV tours upon request. Millsite Golf Course is also just a few miles away, and Castle Valley entertains guests with its own vast array of yard games, clays shooting and fly-fishing.
Castle Valley Outdoors has its own private library complete with classic Western novels!
