Welcome to Craig
Lying on the north bank of the Yampa River between the towns of Meeker and Steamboat Springs, Craig is little more than a pit stop on the way to or from Colorado’s northwest corner. The downtown stands at the junction of roads leading elsewhere: US 40 goes east–west between Steamboat Springs and Dinosaur National Monument; Hwy 789/13 runs north through desolate, rolling hills near the Wyoming Border; and 394 follows the Yampa River south to Meeker.
The main drag is Yampa Ave, but its taxidermy shops, automotive suppliers and liquor stores offer a fairly grim stroll. There are big box stores and several grocers, handy for stocking up for a trip out west.
