Love this lake. We take the kids up there for day trips (there is no camping or motorized boats) and we love just hanging at the beach and paddle boarding/exploring.

This jem of a spot is almost unknown. you can camp for free and at night catch catfish in the 20-40lb range. located near rifle gap reservoir with great trout and pick fishing.

This is a very beautiful spot and a nice way to cool off on a hot afternoon, BUT they should post a sign when they divert half the water to rifle Gap before you pay expecting to go swimming. Very disappointing.

It is just a short drive to this state park from Rifle. Driving through the Gap is quite impressive, interesting rock slides and chutes. The lake level is a bit low, but there were many people out enjoying the water. Nice semi-secluded spot to visit.

I always enjoy chilling by the water under the cottonwood trees. Great place to visit in the summer, or any other season for that matter.

They were low ing the lake levels to make dam repairs the friday we visited, but it was still very pretty. There were shaded picnic tables and public restrooms and a swim beach for the kids. Good lake to kayak fish.
