No Lake is ugly of course. But the surroundings of this lake and publo in particular are just not my idea of beautiful. The National forest area is my idea of beautiful. I like lush Pinophyta covered mountains and the mountains around this lake are...More

Be sure to check the website before you go. We go there only to learn the swim beach was closed and had been for months. Good news - there is plenty of water and other places in the park to swim. Do not go home!...More

We understand that everyone needs to keep their dogs on a leash when you're walking on a trail or wherever there's lots of people. But when you're in an area where you get a chance to throw the stick in the water for the dogs,...More

Swim beaches were closed when we went, so not much to do if you do not rent a boat. Beautiful views and great picnic places though. Nice place to get out of the car and stick your feet in the lake, not great enough to...More

This lake is gorgeous. No swim beach at this time. All kinds of boating activities available. Informative visitor center. No restaurant on site, nice spot for a picnic.

Nice place to camp. If your looking for big shade trees you may not find it. Lake is awesome, you can paddle board nice quiet coves away from everyone. Lots of fishing. Very clean bathrooms and showers. Can be hot. 95 last few days.

We brought our airstream (rv) and two dogs to lake pueblo for two nights. The views were very nice at night with the mountains in the distance and the pretty lake. It was very hot while we were there so it's a shame there isn't...More

I definitely look forward to coming back. It was a lot bigger than I expected. I didn't see anywhere to swim so I can't give it a perfect score but I look forward to renting a boat and fishing.

Amazing reservoir/State Park. Bike trails everywhere. Large camping sites. Good showers . Fishing great. Only negative I would give is lack of trees. It is high desert. Great mountains vistas

No you can not swim anywhere in the lake, there is a facility in the park called the "Swim Beach", it is not on the lake at all. However, this facility is being upgraded this year, and should be very nice. The lake is far... More

It appears to me that none of the campgrounds have much in the way of trees, but there are some nice pinons at one of the campgrounds on the north side. This is a very dry climate. They are repaving all the biking trails... More
