Laporte, Colorado is located northwest of Fort Collins, close to where the Cache La Poudre River emerges from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains; south east of Red Feather Lakes, west of I-25, and nestled the northern Colorado mountains.
The towns name, La Porte, is French for “The Door” which was aptly given as it was the gateway to all the mountainous regions north of the South Platte River and to the Continental Divide. Legend has it that in the late 1800’s a group of fur traders had stashed supplies and gunpowder in a cache along the river near Laporte, hence The Cache La Poudre River.
These days Laporte houses those seeking to surround themselves in Colorado’s picturesque landscape. Residents enjoy watching deer stroll through their yard, humming birds visit the garden, golden sunsets, and bright starry nights. The area is perfect for fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and biking. And it’s only a quick jaunt into the plentiful town of Fort Collins to replenish supplies or hang with the locals. Laporte is timeless town that will immerse you in Colorado’s best!
