Fairplay is a historic gold mining settlement, the town was founded in 1859
There are about 6 churches in town for most peoples needs. The historic chapel in downtown is awesome and friendly. One of the most photographed buildings in the area.
Fairplay Beach and town lake – public fishing in stocked lake and public river frontage – biggest fish I have seen so far is about 24 inches. Always catch 10 to 20 trout per day
