Colorado is home to more than 2,000 lakes and reservoirs. These great bodies of water include the famous Grand Lake, Blue Mesa Reservoir, Lake Dillon, and Lake Granby—all of which provide plentiful recreational opportunities, scenic views, and ample wildlife. In addition to its 41 Colorado State Parks, the state houses some of the most beautiful waterways in the country, facilitating the development and preservation of hundreds of miles of shoreline.
Denver Water Fun is devoted to highlighting some of these water-related opportunities. Though most travelers do not visit Colorado for its lakes—they opt, instead, for the world-class skiing, hiking, and mountain biking—this is one part of the Centennial State’s culture that should not be overlooked. We provide essential information regarding these beautiful waterways, both natural and man-made.
From reservoirs and lakes to pools and rivers, we have detailed some of the most popular water activities in the state. Denver Water Fun provides names and reviews of the best bodies of water for lounging, exploring, and playing. Colorado truly has it all—we want to let everybody know.
