We stopped here on the way back from Bear lake to have a picnic. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. There are quite a few picnic tables and clean restrooms. After lunch we took a stroll along the lake on the trail. It's an easy walk around a very beautiful lake. Great place for kids to enjoy... More

This is a wonderful walk around a beautiful lake. It is also handicapped accessible. In the spring there are lots of wildflowers and baby ducks. In the fall there are beautiful stands of aspen. In the summer it is a very popular place and it is advisable to go early or take the shuttle. Restrooms and lots of picnic tables.... More

The lake is beautiful and the trail around it is easy. There are usually many people here so arrive early. The Ranger Program is very informative and professional. This is a good way to start off sightseeing in RMNP.

Sprague Lake is beautiful. It's an easy walk around the lake, less than a mile. You will see ducks, geese and even moose.

The Park was quite busy, so we were pleased to be able to park the car! We weren't so lucky when we moved on to Bear Lake. Sprague Lake offered a pleasant and easy walk around the lake, with lovely views. Well worth doing, and there are picnic tables too if its lunchtime!

The area is perfect for picnic and a leisure walk around the lake. Plenty of areas for picture taking with the mountains and lake in the background. You easily spend half a day here enjoying the weather, views and stillness. Good place to recharge the batteries.

We found ourselves liking these easy trails more now that we have kids. We brought our stroller for the baby, some food for a picnic. The view was spectacular, as most hikes and places in RMNP. The kids had a great time. It was an easy hike, totally doable with young children. In fact, I took the baby when she... More

Had a perfect evening stroll here toward the end of the day. Fly fisherman standing in the lake. Many other couples out doing the same walk we were. It's not far from Bear Lake if you want to take a stroll around both of them!

We enjoyed walking by Sprague Lake - a pretty lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. We also saw a moose nearby. Parking is in a lot close to the lake. We also saw some people fishing, having picnics, and enjoying this beautiful park.

Was hoping to see a MOOSE but no such luck. Large parking area with restrooms and plenty of riverside spots to picnic. The trail around the lake was very manageable and had gorgeous overlooks. Could've walked that lake every day :)
