Initially developed as a community to service lumber and mining operations, South Fork is now the center of a rapidly growing and changing tourist recreation area. Surrounded by nearly 2 million acres of national forest, this area provides visitors with abundant all-season activities from hunting and fishing to skiing and wildlife viewing.
Lodging is available in cabins, motels, RV parks and campgrounds. The area also offers an abundant restaurant selection, unique shops and galleries. The breathtaking scenery and family-oriented adventure will captivate and draw you back year after year.
Winter brings the "Most Snow in Colorado" to nearby Wolf Creek Ski Area. Snowmobilers, cross-country skiers and snowshoers will find endless miles of trails, plus ice fishing, sledding and ice skating. Summer and spring offer a multitude of outdoor activities, events, sightseeing, history, culture and relaxation. And in fall, the area explodes with color as the dark-green forest becomes splashed with shades of yellow, red and orange.
