Kremmling Area Chamber of Commerce: Year-Round Recreation
|Visit our Web site|
Kremmling is Nestled in the Colorado River Valley
The Way Colorado Used To Be -- Untapped and Untamed
The sparkling, clear mountain air lends an exhilarating feeling and an extra zest to life.
Kremmling is at the crossroads of Highway 9 and historic Highway 40 -- in the "heart of the Colorado's high country!" Highway 40 is a designated Colorado and National Scenic Byway.
Kremmling sits at the confluence of Muddy Creek, the Blue River and the Colorado River, and it is surrounded by 3 national forests (Routt National Forest, Arapaho National Forest, and White River National Forest)! Kremmling is also near 3 major reservoirs (Wolford Reservoir, Williams Fork Reservoir, and Green Mountain Reservoir).
Kremmling, Colorado offers a handful of small hotels, private cabins, campgrounds and dude ranches providing intimate meeting space with a touch of western hospitality.
The Colorado River Headwaters Scenic Byway
Dropping 1,700 feet in elevation in its 80 mile stretch the Colorado River Headwaters Byway follows the Colorado River past many reservoirs, vast ranch lands, and through narrow canyons flanked by the railroad. Wildlife abounds and access to public land offers year-round recreation. Views of the Rocky Mountain landscapes and geology will make this drive one you will want to experience in every season.
Kremmling: a Sportsman's Paradise
Fishing, hiking, hunting, OHV/ATV trails, hiking, boating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, horseback riding are just a few of the many things located in Kremmling's backyard.
The best elk hunting in Colorado is near Kremmling (Colorado Hunting Units 15, 27, 36, 37 & 181). The Colorado River and the Blue River offer Gold Medal waters that keep your line active and your net full! These Rivers also offer rapids that make river rafting or kayaking adventures safe for the whole family.
During the winter, Kremmling offers exceptional ice fishing on Wolford and Williams Fork Reservoirs. For those looking for a land excursion to bound through the snow there are plenty of groomed trails for snowmobiles and cross-country skiing.
Kremmling scenery is not only stunning but of geological importance. Fossil Ridge is a short drive from Kremmling and has fossils of long gone ammonites. Don't forget to stop at Inspiration Point to see the spectacular views of Gore Canyon.
