Rangely is a small town located among the stunning mesas of the high desert in Northwest Colorado, which is part of the Great West Region.  Our town is filled with caring citizens, clean air and amazing adventures...right out your backdoor.  We feel fortunate to have 300 days of sunshine a year, dark skies, hundreds of miles of OHV Trails and one of the only designated natural rock-crawling parks in Colorado.  We are located on the Dinosaur Diamond Scenic Byway.

The quality of life in Rangely is second to none…..a safe environment with low cost of living and no traffic. Recently, Rangely was ranked the 2nd Safest City to live in Colorado by HousesFor.Sale.

Working remotely is easily accomplished in our town with our 1gb fiber-optic internet services. Our Town was actually ranked #23 in the U.S. for "Best Work from Home Cities in 2021."

We are a college town being home to Colorado Northwestern Community College’s main campus.

Rangely has the best of both worlds....quiet, safe and remote with major shopping only an hour away....along a beautiful scenic drive.  We invite you to come check us out....be sure to stop by Town Hall and say hello.
