Our Member Communities / Grand County / Town of Kremmling

The Town of Kremmling, Colorado lies at the confluence of Muddy Creek, Blue and Colorado Rivers in Grand County, about 100 miles west of Denver. At an elevation of 7,364 feet, Kremmling is located at the junction of Colorado Highway 9 and US Highway 40. In 1884, Rudolph Kremmling established a general store in the town, and as ranchers occupied the surrounding areas, more services were established in Kremmling to meet their needs. The town incorporated in 1904. A friendly, small-town atmosphere has influenced many families and businesses to settle in Kremmling-a town where it's easy to be involved if that's what you want and just as easy to "get away from it all" in the thousands of acres of Bureau of Land management and U.S. Forest Service land surrounding Kremmling. Just a two hour drive from Denver, Kremmling has easy access to every need.
