Chipita Park is a charming, little unincorporated community on Ute Pass in El Paso County. The neighborhood is lined with Victorian-style houses and centered around a tranquil lake.
The town uses its neighbor Cascade as a mailing address and is combined in the same census-designated place, known as Cascade-Chipita Park. There are numerous nearby hiking trails, including Crystal and Catamount Falls.
Visitors can also head to Green Mountain Falls, another Ute Pass neighbor. There they have a couple of restaurants and beautiful Gazebo Lake.
Originally known as Ute Park, the town was renamed Chipita Park in the mid-1900s after Chief Ouray’s wife, Chipeta. In 1890 the Ute Hotel was opened and there were also summer cottages and a lake built.
