South Fork, Colorado is a quiet mountain village, nestled in the scenic San Juan Mountains, where the views are spectacular and the wildlife is abundant. Get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and escape to the quiet serenity of the mountains. South Fork offers world-class golf at the Rio Grande Club, skiing at Wolf Creek Ski Area, just 17 miles away, and Gold Medal fishing on the legendary Rio Grande River. If hiking, camping, four-wheeling, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, and other endless outdoor activities are what you long for, South Fork is completely surrounded by the 2 million acre Rio Grande National Forest.

Some of Our Favorite Places

Pickleball

Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy to learn and can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Pickleball is a fun sport that can be played indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net, a paddle and a plastic ball. This sport combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Be sure to click on the Learn More link for rules of the game.
