Gunnison Field Office

Proudly Serving Gunnison and Hinsdale Counties

The Gunnison Field Office is part of the Salida District of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS), and is one of three field offices within 16 districts located throughout Colorado. We are a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU). The CSFS headquarters is located on the CSU Foothills Campus in Fort Collins.

Our mission is to achieve stewardship of Colorado's diverse forest environments for the benefit of present and future generations.

The Colorado State Forest Service offers technical assistance and information to private landowners and homeowners interested in becoming good stewards of the natural resources on their land. We do not manage campgrounds, have jurisdiction over public lands or sell recreational licenses.
