Silver Jack Recreation Area

Scenic Spot for a Day or Overnight Trip

The Silver Jack Recreation Area is located 40 miles southeast of Montrose, Colorado, on the north slope of the rugged San Juan Mountains. There are three developed campgrounds in the area, as well as the Silver Jack Reservoir, hiking trails, fishing, and somuch more. The drive itself over Owl Creek Pass is quite scenic. 

Though well-traveled, the Silver Jack Recreation Area is remote and few services are available. Roads are unpaved and may be impassable when wet. Plan accordingly and be prepared for emergencies.
