Crowley County

Crowley County

Crowley County is located on the high plains of Southeast Colorado. Ordway, the County seat, lies about 50 miles east of Pueblo at the intersection of U.S. Highway 96 and Colorado 71. Crowley County has 787.42 square miles of land area and 12.91 square miles of water area and a population density of 8.2 per square mile. The average elevation is 4,300 feet.

Crowley County is one of Colorado’s best places to relax and unwind. Fishing, camping, boating, jet skiing, bird watching, bicycling, you name it. In many ways, Crowley County is Colorado as it was intended to be. Crowley County’s 802 square miles feature rolling prairies, wooded glades, farm fields and ranchlands. Expansive lakes and streets lined with shade trees make the area a popular place to visit and settle down.
