Discover Basalt: Rivers, Recreation & Culture

Basalt Chamber

Updated: 12/16/2019

Known for its two Gold Medal fly-fishing waters — Roaring Fork and Fryingpan rivers — Basalt is at the confluence of rivers, recreation and culture. With its small-town charm, you can enjoy a true local Colorado experience in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. Shop boutiques, browse art galleries and a summertime downtown farmers' market, dine at delicious restaurants or catch some live music. Just a short drive from five ski mountains and several hot springs, Basalt is also a perfect home base for outdoor activities like mountain biking, stand-up paddleboarding, whitewater rafting and more.
