Bunnies galore. Beautiful walking/multi-use trails (though, be careful, they're not particularly well marked. Rangers were friendly, the bathrooms were in EXCELLENT condition. Campground (Arkansas Point) was situated close to a boat launch, and had wonderful vistas of the lake. Great spot!

We had a boat in a slip on the North Shore Marina for a season and it was a lot of fun. I didn't grow up boating, so when I step on the docks, it feels like vacation in California.

A real gem. One of the many reason Pueblo is such a unique and wonderful little gem of the desert. Great vistas, beaches docks and plenty of water to enjoy.

I came to Lake Pueblo to park my RV for two nights - (a Sun & Mon) while I had some business in the area. For starters, yes, ReserveAmerica (who takes reservations for the Colorado Parks) is pretty lame - wonder how they get these government contracts! I got totally inaccurate information about the site I was reserving (yes, I... More

We had an amazing time taking the boat out on the lake. The kids got to wakeboard and were able to swim in a back cove with life jackets on. The fishing was a lot of fun and other boaters were courteous. There is a nice beach for kids to go and swim at.

The facilities at the swim beach are great. There's plenty of parking, pavilions, shaded picnic areas, and restrooms have large changing areas with showers. But the water is just a large pond away from the main reservoir. The geese like to swim here and then there's the unavoidable goose poop everywhere. With the vast shoreline at Lake Pueblo, this could... More

Not boaters or fishers, just goofed off in the park. Too hot to do a lot but went to the swim beach a couple times and paddleboarded and tubed, and went to the fish hatchery, took the nature walk, and drove around and hung out by the campfire. Pretty low-key but the kids enjoyed it. Upside was that the lake... More

I grew up in Pueblo, and watched as they built the dam that created this wonderful water getaway. Just in the high plains of Colorado, at the foot of the rocky Mountains is this lovely lake. Surrounded by some of the most picturesque scenery on the planet. And it is also my wife's favorite american spot to kayak!!! Come breath... More
