ABOUT THE GUNNISON AREA:
Gunnison County encompasses 3,239 square miles making it one of the largest counties in the State of Colorado! 85% of the county is federal land which means that for those of us that live here, we have access to the biggest playground right in our backyard! So we've got plenty of space to enjoy horses, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, rafting, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, boating, jeeping, camping, campfires or anything else the great outdoors offers. Gunnison County is home to many great things from our 103 year old college, Western State College, to World Class skiing at Crested Butte Mountain and at Monarch Ski Areas, to one of the largest bodies of water in the state, Blue Mesa Reservior. Come, stay and play for a while and you will see why so many of us here are excited to call this place home!
