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.

Gilpin County is in Stage 1 Fire Restrictions. Please click here to view the resolution and prohibited/approved activities during this restriction. As always, please take special care when using fire outdoors in these dry, summer days. You can always find the current fire restriction information on the Sheriff's page by clicking here.
