Welcome to the County of Gilpin Website
Gilpin County is a rural community in Colorado’s high country, neighboring the Continental Divide, yet less than an hour west of downtown Denver.  Residents enjoy a quality of life enhanced by the vast recreational opportunities offered by Golden Gate State Park, the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests, the limited-stakes gaming in Black Hawk and Central City, a state-of-the-art recreation center and fairgrounds, low taxes and financially secure local government.

Code Red subscribers need to be aware of change in their notification application. Effective Wednesday, December 13, 2017, the number 76993 will be a notification from Code Red. Please add this number to your "Safe sender or whitelist" or just approve it in your contacts so you don't miss any notifications. If you do not have numbers blocked, there won't be any changes.

You are invited to attend one of two meetings to Identify and Prioritize future County transportation initiatives.

MAJOR RENOVATIONS will begin on the Old Courthouse in Central City starting December 4, 2017, and are expected to continue through next Spring.  County offices will remain open during the project, but please be prepared for dust and noise.  While work is being done in each office area, staff will be temporarily stationed in the second-floor meeting room.  If you need assistance to access one of these offices, please call that office directly, or Administration at 303-582-5214 to make arrangements.
