While Decker’s, Colorado does appear on most road maps of Colorado, and did for many years have a post office, it was always a resort, not a town. Steven O. Decker filed a mining claim at the confluence of Horse Creek (then called Trout Creek) and the South Platte River. He built a general store and operated a saloon. Over the years Deckers remained a resort under several owners. Today, Deckers resort is owned by the Denver Water Board and consists of a cozy cafe and liquor store, community hall, small grocery store and a full service fly-fishing guide shop.
The idea of DiscoverDeckers.com came to life after recognizing the need to have a “HUB” of information for a very popular Outdoor recreational activity area, centered around the Pike National Forest and the Cheesman Canyon area. Because the Decker’s area does not have it’s own zip code and falls under the 80135 zip code of Sedalia, Colorado, the area could not be searched with today’s preferred method, the internet. Therefore, we decided to build an informational platform to share the current Fire Alerts and Restrictions, river conditions, safety alerts, and tons of other tidbits of information to help you navigate the Decker’s and South Platte River Valley areas. Whether you’re the first time visitor to the Decker’s area, or perhaps your the native Angler, DiscoverDeckers.com has something for you. With weekly fishing reports, brought to you by http://www.FlyCastUsa.com, you’ll be sure to have the best and latest information to help you land that Trophy Trout, in the World Famous Cheesman Canyon and the Decker’s sections of the South Platte River. Complete with interactive maps, our “Explore Deckers” tab will show you some of the best places to Fish, Camp, Hike, Rock Climb, and much more! Check out our “Services” tab, where you’ll be connected to a variety of vendors, artists, and small businesses, that make up the South Platte River Valley and surrounding areas. Wondering what’s happening in the Decker’s area? be sure to take a peek at our “Events” tab, where you can find Volunteer opportunities with several non-profit organizations that do various projects in the area, as well as other local events taking place in the Valley.
