Palmer Lake

Small Town Mountain Living

Palmer Lake is a small town with a large story. Located at the foot of the front range mountains, directly between Denver and Colorado Springs, this small town has served as a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the big city life since it was founded in 1882. Originally plotted as a vacation community, the area has always been treasured for its small town lifestyle and elaborate matrix of trails that go on for miles in the mountain range.

Palmer Lake, CO

Palmer Lake, CO Real EstatePalmer Lake is located just North of Monument, CO and is surrounded by Pike National Forest and the Greenland Open Space Preserve. The population of the town is 2,420 people and has only grown by 241 people over the last 10 years. For this reason, Palmer Lake is a great place to live for those who value privacy, quiet, and a small town lifestyle.

History of Palmer Lake

In 1871, General William Palmer purchased a large portion of the land in Palmer Lake for the Denver & Rio Grand Railroad. This was the only place for the steam trains to stop and gather water from a  natural resource along the front range mountains. Dr. William Finley officially purchased the land and plotted out the city of Palmer Lake in 1882. The area was intended to be a vacation area and was offered as a healthy place to get a way and relax. Palmer Lake has a rich history and many stories during the wild west of Indian scalping, shootouts, and saloon raids.

Palmer Lake's Star of Bethleham

Many of tourists and residents from other parts of Colorado have noticed the bright 5 point start that is lit up in the month of December, and throughout the year for special occasions. It is 475 feet across and rest on Sundance Mountain in Palmer Lake. This star represents the start of Bethlehem from the Bible and was originally constructed in 1935 by Jack and Bert Sloan. In 1976, the star was reconstructed by the city and has been a staple of the community ever since, ushering in the joy of Christmas that can be seen from many miles away.

Things to Do in Palmer Lake

In 2012, the Lake at Palmer Lake had almost completely dried up. In 2014, we received enough rainfall to partially restore the lake, but recent droughts and water management decisions are taking their toll on the lake. There are two reservoirs behind the lake that open to the public and great for hiking and/or fishing. The Upper Reservoir is a great place to get away in to the mountains and catch a few fish. The trail to these reservoirs starts in the center of town and continues up into the mountain range. It’s one of my personal favorite places to spend a day off with my family. There are many trials throughout the hills and mountains in palmer lake. I advise bringing a map of the trails if you venture out that way because it is easy to get lost.
