Recreation in the SLV
Welcome to the historical Fort Garland in the forgotten wilds of Colorado. This quaint town was established in 1858 to ‘protect’ settlers, miners, bullwhackers and mule teams crossing into the San Luis Valley via the Santa Fe Trail.
Now, Fort Garland is home to just over 450 welcoming residents. During your stay, make sure to visit some of the delicious local restaurants around town. Also, we are home to many historic places such as the oldest standing forts from the Great Western Expansion.
Are you here to hunt? Well, you came to the right place! With over 8,000 head of elk, countless deer, bear, fox, eagles, lynx, mountain lion, moose, and Mexican gray wolf, you're destined to have a successful stay.
