Kremmling embodies the spirit of the American West. It is characterized by the determination of the pioneer, and the kinship of community. The valleys around Kremmling were home to Ute indians, and the area was settled by silver miners in the late 1800s. Still today, much of the land is populated by working ranches.
Kremmling is the headwaters of the famed Colorado River, making rafting, kayaking and fishing main attractions in the summer months. The area's vast wilderness has made the town a destination for game hunters, snowmobilersand outdoor enthusiasts.
