LET’S GO FISHING

Some of the waters in Grand County are designated as Gold Medal Waters; high quality cold water producing trophy sized trout. We recommend booking a trip with a local guide who can help you find some of the best fishing spots in the West. Here are our tips & tricks for getting on the water.
READY FOR A BEER?
For a town with a relatively low permanent population, Winter Park has plenty of brewery options. With new additions in the last few years, it can now be considered a beer destination. Start in Fraser and ride bikes on the paved bike trail connecting Fraser to downtown Winter Park. A few of our favorites include Camber Brewing Co., Fraser River Beer Co., The Peak, Hideway Park Brewery, Big Trout Brewing, Vicious Cycle Brewing. If you’re in Winter Park in early August, make sure to check out the Winter Park Beer Festival to taste local & regional beers in Hideaway Park. Cheers!
