Create an itinerary including Fort Uncompahgre
Fort Uncompahgre was a fur trading post constructed in 1828 by Antoine Robidoux, a trader based out of Mexican Santa Fe. The post was situated about two miles down from the confluence of the Gunnison River and the Uncompahgre River, near the present day community of Delta, Colorado. Its design was more to secure goods and livestock than to be defensive, and was abandoned in 1844 when hostilities broke out between Ute and Mexicans.
A reconstruction of this fur trading post is open to the public, although the precise location of the original site has been lost and little is known about the construction or layout of the fort.

  • Cool place to walk around and see some history displays. They have a collection of about a dozen small cabins arranged in a fort each cabin has a historical display inside of it. Great place for kids....  more

  • We were the only two there this morning. It was very interesting. So much history. The woman was knowledgeable and friendly, & there is a wonderful cat there to welcome you. I think he was my favorite 🤭.
  • Nice place to stop and stretch your legs and get a cancelation for your nps passport book! Bathrooms were clean but not climate control.
