Plunge deep into nature at this narrow lake park. Steep mountainsides, pristine water, alpine scenery and peaceful environment make Paonia a haven for water and nature lovers.
Camp near a babbling stream, water-ski on a mountain reservoir, have a picnic, observe wildlife, all in view of the majestic Ragged Mountains. The park’s natural beauty and abundance of wildflowers make it a “must see” for photographers and nature lovers.
Colorado State Parks in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation recently rehabilitated several areas of the park. Visitors can relax here; for one day or for several.
Spruce campground, located next to Highway 133, offers eight campsites in a scenic setting with towering blue spruce trees and a babbling stream a few feet away.
Hawsapple campground, across the stream, is popular with water skiers.
All campsites have a picnic table, a fire ring and nearby vault toilets. Sorry, theres no drinking water available in the park.
