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.
