State Wildlife Areas are an investment in the future and a link to our past. Purchased with sportsmen’s dollars, they help preserve wildlife and valuable wildlife habitat for future generations. By providing quality wildlife-related recreation, such as hunting, wildlife viewing and photography, they maintain an important part of Colorado’s heritage. With your help, SWAs can insure wildlife in wild places, now and in the future.
Ranging in elevation from 5,500 to 10,500 feet, this SWA contains a rich diversity of plants and wildlife, spanning four life zones. Garfield Creek SWA is unique in that it provides both summer and winter range for elk and deer.
Garfield Creek SWA consists of approximately 13,000 acres in two separate units: Garfield Creek and Upper Baldy Creek. Both units are located between the Colorado River and the high mountain peaks to the south.
