Discover why the people who live here love it, and the people who visit here never forget it!
Located in the heart of the Southwestern Rocky Mountains, Creede, Colorado is the only town in Mineral County, which also includes Wolf Creek Ski Resort, home to the "Most Snow in Colorado"! Secluded and beautiful, Creede sits on the stunning Silver Thread National Scenic Byway near the headwaters of the Rio Grande River. Mineral County is 96% public lands, national forest and wilderness, and it remains remote and wild. Unlimited access to nature, solitude, inspiring views and hikes, and some of the best trout fishing in the world are great reasons to visit.
A small, tight-knit community with strong values and a big heart, Creede is also the perfect place to call home. A new state-of-the-art school, an airport with one of the longest runways in Colorado, and high-speed broadband internet service make it more than just your average small town. The Town of Creede is home to charming and unique retail shops, restaurants, art galleries, numerous live music venues and two stages of the award-winning Creede Repertory Theatre. Visit the world's only underground firehouse and mining museum, or the carefully preserved volcanic hoodoos of the Wheeler Geologic Area. Creede, Colorado truly is one of the last great places.
Come here yourself, and you will see why we say, "Creede, it's where you want to be!"
