Great views!

Nice, relaxing area for getaway from Fort Collins proper. Keep eyes open for mountain / road bicyclists on roadways! Several areas to park and hike, picnic, boat, or camp.

Great place to unwind, relax, meditate, exercise, or just commune with God. If I ever win the lottery, my dream home would... More

Had a little trouble finding the swimming beach. Heading north from FoCo it was the second parking area and you follow the road downhill to the beach. Small beach, kind of rocky, but water was warm in Aug and it felt great to swim.
