Discover North Park with Colorado's Fly Fishing Specialists

Local Information

Jackson County, most commonly referred to as North Park, encompasses nearly 1,600 square miles. Less than 1,500 people permanently reside here so it is still considered a frontier by government standards and designation. It is the idyllic Rocky Mountain setting with snow-capped peaks, gin-clear streams, abundant wildlife, and not a single stoplight.
The town of Walden has a population of about 800 and serves as the county seat. Within the town you will find public services such as: a small clinic that provides medical services and some emergency care, the North Park Pioneer Museum, the county library, an indoor swimming pool, a town park, and the Sheriff’s Department. There are several motels, a couple restaurants, a couple gas stations/convenience stores, a bowling alley, an auto parts store, a hardware, a grocery store, two liquor stores, and, of course, a bar. It is also home to the best little fly shop in the west…North Park Anglers.
