Alligators in Colorado
Colorado Gators Reptile Park is a hidden treasure that can be found 17 miles North of Alamosa on Highway 17. I found this great tourist attraction during a road trip around Colorado. Some times it AMAZING what you can find!
With 23 years in Colorado with alligators, this will surely be a destination you will want to add to your tourist list! There are 125 species of exotic birds, turtles, alligators (LOTS of alligators), reptile refuge, rattlesnakes & pythons, ostriches and emus. You can tour a working fish farm in geothermal pools.
HOURS of operation: Labor Day thru Memorial Day (thru the winter months) are open 9 am to 5 pm.
Children (6-15) $7.50
Seniors (65+) and children under 5 are FREE
There are friendly turtles wandering the shop, along with gators you can get a picture taken with you holding one! This is in beautiful territory, so don't forget to bring your camera. Alligators are not usually a site you will be expecting Colorado!
