Community Info

White River Community Association

Meeker CO is located in Northwest Colorado at the west end of the Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway. It's just a few short, beautiful miles from many access points to the 235,000 acre Flat Tops Wilderness, the 2nd largest in Colorado, and some say the most beautiful and accessible!  You can see more info about the one & only Flat Tops Wilderness video, "Island Of The Rockies" by visiting the Colorado Wilderness website.

The Meeker, Craig and Rio Blanco County community offers opportunities for horseback riding, backpacking, hiking, fishing,  rafting, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing, as well as what we're most famous for - Deer and Elk BIG GAME HUNTING!  You'll also meet some of nicest residents Colorado has to offer right here in the White River Valley. Check our listing of Northwest Colorado outfitters to book your next elk hunt, deer hunt or even hunt a black bear.  Private land hunts, as well as public property hunts are still available with our outfitters. Trespass hunts are available at Colorado's Mountain West Outfitting Company, Craig CO,

Meeker, CO with a population of approximately 2200 people (except during hunting season when it doubles!), is located in the heart of the White River Valley in Northwestern Colorado. It is the western gateway, as Yampa, Colorado is the eastern gateway, to the Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway. Great fishing spots are everywhere in the White River National Forest, Flat Tops Wilderness and the White River Valley.

The White River Community Association holds their Buy Fly Fishing Tournament the 2nd weekend in March of each year at the Historic Buford School upriver from Meeker. Fun for all and it also supplies the whitefish for the Annual Community Fish Fry which is held the second Saturday in June. Anyone can enter, but 12 teams maximum on the White River for this event.
