Welcome to Ordway!
A small town just off the beaten path in southeastern Colorado, the Town of Ordway was founded in 1911 and serves as the county seat of Crowley County and hails proudly as the home of the Chargers!
We are proud of our heritage and welcome visitors with a wide range of entertainment year-round, from a Friday night football game to a weekend stay at any of our two large lakes just outside of town.
Lake Henry and Lake Meredith are a short drive east on Highway 96 and offer outdoorsmen boating, wind sailing, fishing and free camping opportunities with beaches to enjoy the summer sun. Ordway is also home to a reservoir north of town on Highway 71. Our lakes are sure to offer stories worthy of tales of how “The Big One” got away!
Our historic town offers two cafes with home-style cooking certain to satisfy all of your taste buds, two taverns, grocery store, gas station complete with full-service attendants, drug/medical supply store, hotel with very charming rooms, churches for every religion, hardware store, and a high achieving school district.
Ordway is also the place to stop for relax for those bicycling across America. The TransAmerica Bicycle Trail is well traveled as it includes Highway 96. We’ve been here to welcome all cyclists since the trail was established as Bikercentennial in 1976.
