5 Lakes In Colorado You Must Visit This Summer

Colorado has plenty of beautiful lakes to visit any time of the year. Check out this list of 5 you must visit this summer.

Grand Lake.

Formed by glaciers, surrounded by Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Grand Lake has smitten tourists for generations. No one forgets Grand Lake. The lake itself is the deepest and largest natural lake in Colorado, and the area attracts an impressive diversity of wildlife.

Blue Mesa Reservoir

Blue Mesa Reservoir is one of Colorado’s must see destinations. It is located in Western Colorado near the town of Gunnison. Blue Mesa is Colorado’s largest lake being twenty miles long with 96 miles of shoreline. It is part of the Curecanti National Recreation Area which also contains Morrow Point Reservoir and Crystal Reservoir.

Horsetooth Reservoir.

Horsetooth Reservoir is one of the largest bodies of water near my home here in Fort Collins, CO and is seen here from an aerial viewpoint featuring Horsetooth Rock and Long’s Peak rising behind the reservoir.

Lake San Cristobal.

Over 340 acres in size, Lake San Cristobal is the second-largest natural lake in the state of Colorado.  Lake San Cristobal is located just 3 miles from Lake City, Colorado. The cool waters are home to abundant and large trout, making it an ideal place for either boat or shore fishing.
