The Hidden Gem of Colorado

The tranquil town of La Veta, at the base of the majestic Spanish Peaks, is located along the Scenic Highway of Legends. La Veta, the vein, served as a vital lifeline a century ago; the town was originally a busy trading center, supplying the nearby area with goods. It is now home to a diverse population of artists and ranchers. 

Nestled in the shadow of the Spanish Peaks, Lathrop State Park offers a gentle climate, 103 campsites, fishing, water-skiing, golfing, hiking and great views of the nearby mountain ranges.
