Amache National Historic Site in Colorado

Colorado is home to the newest National Park. The Amache National Historic Site is in Granada, which is about four hours from Denver. This was one of ten incarceration sites established by the War Relocation Authority during World War II to unjustly incarcerate Japanese Americans. There are interpretive panels, self-guided driving and audio tour, and several reconstructed and rehabilitated structures from the World War II camp-era.

Below is a YouTube video by Rocky Mountain PBS that brings you the story of Amache through the eyes of those who lived it.

The physical address is County Road 23 5/10, Granada, Colorado 81041. There is limited cell phone and data coverage. You may want to download the map data before heading there.

We were planning on heading there during spring break. As of today, March 4, 2024, the official webpage states that there is road damage from heavy rains and some roads may require high clearance of 4×4 vehicles. We will check again when it gets closer to see how the roads are doing.

Visit the Official Amache National Historic Site page to learn more.
