Quartz Creek Cabins is located 1.5 - 2 miles from historic Pitkin, Colo. Additionally, we are surrounded by the beautiful Gunnison National Forest.
Numerous roads and trails in the national forest offer outings for hikers, bikers, horse-back trail riding, ATVs, dirt bikes, and four-wheel drive vehicles.
Gunnsion is located approximately 27 miles to the west. From Gunnison, there are several destinations—Crested Butte is only 28 miles to the north, and Blue Mesa Reservoir, Colorado’s largest body of water, can be found 8 miles to the west.
Quartz Creek Cabins is located just below the Pitkin State Fish Hatchery. Quartz Creek runs through the property for approximately a 1/4 mile, providing our guests many great trout fishing opportunities—several of them right out your cabin’s back door.
For the hunters, opportunities in the surrounding mountains for deer and elk are world class. For those that just like to observe, Quartz Creek and the surrounding mountains offer the chance to see a variety of wildlife, including deer and elk (and at least one moose) that have been known to join us in the early mornings.
