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.
Most County Offices will be closed Monday, May 26, 2017 for the Memorial Day Holiday. The transfer station will be closed on Sunday, May 28, 2017.
