Twice we have canoed on the lake and will definitely do it again on our next visit to Estes Park area. The staff at the Marina is very helpful and friendly. Lots of options besides boats on the lake. We have also used the bike rentals. The rental fees are very reasonable.

Beautiful views surround lake Estes. And then you have the extremely rude people who work at the marina. Note - managed by the local rec district. Absolutely unprofessional staff. Too bad the lake is so small that there isn't an alternative to put this horribly ran 'business' our of business.

They answered questions and seemed knowledgeable but were not exactly warm and inviting. Didn't think the pricing was all that great since we'd just rented a boat at a lake in Arkansas that was half the price. The lake area is gorgeous and the kids loved the playground. If you don't want to pay the $5 for parking go to... More

Rented a pontoon for 2 hours. Kids also kayaked and rented a bike. We fished off the shore after returning boat. Very clean place- reasonably priced. Wish we had caught a fish!

This small lake in Estes Park is a nice get-away from the busy, busy downtown. Fun for families and a nice place to hang out and get wet.

Small lake but awesome help at marina. Set my kids up with the perfect bait, then headed out to a great spot. This marina had what we needed and a smile to go with it

If you have a dog in Estes Park, you will soon find there are not many places to walk your dog, especially in winter. You cannot take a dog on trails in RMNP, trails like Gem Lake and McGregor Ranch used to take dogs but don't now, and Hermit Park Open Space was closed for the winter when I went... More

Well, the lake is different since the flood, but I think it will return to being a beautiful lake next summer. (You wouldn't want to go out on the lake in the winter.) Gram, Mom and 2 granddaughters went out in a paddle boat--what fun. I laughed so hard I thought I'd have a heart attack (I'm the Gram). The... More

Lovely small lake. We rented kayaks and used the walking trails. The rentals were reasonable priced and they also have bikes, paddle boats, etc. Great way to spend an afternoon.

The entrance was hard to find with little in the way of signs leading up to the lake. Once there it offers little in the way of excitement as it is essentially a hole in the ground.
