Mountain Strong Together!

On behalf of the Platte Canyon Chamber of Commerce, we welcome you to Platte Canyon!

Our communities are historic yet thriving and strong!  Situated along some of the most scenic areas of US 285, we are just a short drive from Denver.  

The Platte Canyon Chamber of Commerce serves the communities of Bailey, Pine Junction, Shawnee and Grant, Colorado. Our Mission is to encourage business growth and a strong community by providing information and advocacy for members.  It is our Vision to support the future growth of a thriving community with energetic leadership, enhanced local participation and an enriched business climate.

We believe some of the things that make our area exceptional are the tremendous scenery and abundant wildlife.  You can often see deer, elk, rams, mountain goats, fox, coyote and the occasional bear!  The area topography from plains and pastures to mountains and lakes encourages outdoor activities such as hiking, rock climbing, ATV trails, mountain biking, hunting, fishing and camping. Our area boasts excellent access to some fabulous trails such as the Colorado Trail, Ben Tyler Trail and many others.  And, the North Fork of the South Platte River flows through our towns right alongside the highway.

The Platte Canyon Chamber hosts fun local mixers and exciting events throughout the year including Bailey Day, Bailey Car Show and Cowboy Christmas.  The Chamber is also proud to provide annual college scholarships to local students via the CHANCES Scholarship Fund.

We are proud to be a “Mountain Strong Together” community; supporting one another in times of triumph and need.  Come visit us!  We are sure you will want to stay and become part of our beautiful community.
