Rifle, Co. is at the base of the White River Plateau, about an hour northeast of Grand Junction, where ranchers gather, deer and elk hunters talk guns, and campers stock up for adventures in the surrounding White River National Forest.
About 15 miles north of town, you'll come across the Rifle Gap State Park. Camping, fishing and boating on the reservoir are popular here, as is spelunking next door at Rifle Mountain Park's limestone caves formed by a 50-foot waterfall.
