Mineral County

Mineral County is located in deep within the Rocky Mountains of Southern Colorado. Featuring 95% public lands, residents and visitors find untouched mountain scenery, abundant opportunities for hiking, camping, skiing, fishing and hunting, and remote mines and ghost towns to explore.

The City of Creede is the only town in Mineral County. Established in 1892, Creede’s history and economy has been built on silver mining and continues today through tourism. Art galleries, shopping, fine dining, historical tours, and the Creede Repertory Theatre attract visitors to town year round.

The tenacious spirit of the locals and the versatility of the community have enabled Creede to thrive at 8500 feet for over 110 years!
