History

The name of Platoro, Colorado comes from the Spanish words Plata for gold and Oro for silver. Platoro saw activity in the late 1800's to early 1900's. It dwindled to a ghost town with only a few residents once the gold and silver rush ended. It now has become a small resort town located near the Conjeos River and Platoro Reservoir. Camping, fishing and hunting are now offered in the town and surrounding area.
