Not too crowded usually and good place for the novice fisher-kids. Nice small stocked lake/pond. Close to Hwy 50 and town so if you need anything it's not too far off the beaten path.

Small boat can be put in the water but you will have to travel in a circle, only going on way. There are no places to get food and there... More

I see people water skiing from time to time. If I recall properly, there are BBQ grills next to the picnic tables. There is a swimming area which I think the locals... More

We stopped at this nice little beach and park area with a nice view of the mountains in the background. The entrance fee is $7/day. The beach has picnic tables, fully functioning bathrooms, and park office. There is a swimmer area separated from the boats and was very relaxing. Glad we found this place on a hot Colorado day as...
