Welcome to North Park - Jackson County, Colorado!

RAW, remote, tucked deep in Colorado’s rugged Rockies, the high valley of North Park and its County of Jackson literally scream FRONTIER and a past fast-held in present days. Holding true to ROUGH and rugged times when native hunters, trappers, prospectors, and early ranchers survived off its lands and forged its history, North Park is the REAL West, where travelers can embrace “what once was”, while happily escaping “what now is”.

 

With over a million acres covering more than 1600 square miles; 65% public land; lakes, rivers and reservoirs that attract and support unique and abundant wildlife; and access to five of Colorado’s most rugged and pristine wilderness areas – North Park lies at the center of a minimally used and amazingly untapped recreation universe.

 

Light on links to the world-wide web, with mall shopping, bright lights and traffic jams at least 65 paved-miles away, it is removed from “civilization”, but easily accessed by civilized folk in search of solitude. Raw, Rough, Real – make your GETAWAY to NORTH PARK this year. Unplug to plug in – disconnect from your life and reconnect with your soul.
