What's Coming Next...
At the Junction of Hinsdale CR 50 (Deer Lakes Road) and Highway 149
The proposed Slumgullion Astronomy Site project is a complete makeover of a decommissioned campground near the top of Slumgullion Pass. The final vision for this site includes a telescope viewing pad, astro-campground, and observatory. We hope to break ground on phase 1 of this project in 2023. This project is pending a USFS permit.
This property spans both sides of the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River at the junction of 9th and Water Streets
The LFVC property along the river right in the heart of town is the perfect spot for a river park. Could you help us design it? We will continue gathering community input in 2023 to help guide the design of the Lake City River Park. Send us a message to provide input or get involved with the planning process.
