Grand Lake, Colorado Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Grand Lake is the state's largest natural body of water, located on the southwest edge of Rocky Mountain National Park in north central Colorado. Surrounded by federally protected mountain peaks, Grand and the nearby man-made reservoirs offer 150 miles of shoreline. Boaters and fishers alike will enjoy the cool waters, nestled over 8,000 feet above sea level near the Continental Divide. Visitors can also relax at one of the many cabins or bed-and-breakfast inns along the lakeshore or on the hills above.

The small town of Grand Lake caters to travelers coming to the region. A rustic feel pervades with an emphasis on log cabin-style architecture and a pleasant lack of corporate chains. A wide variety of unique lodging options and a number of interesting places to eat make Grand Lake a popular spot, both for visitors to the national park and to the lake itself.

Grand Lake is located in the mountains of north central Colorado, northwest of Denver.

Rocky Mountain National ParkAt the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. In the summer, you can rent a boat, bring your own or simply enjoy the gentle lapping of the waves from the sandy shore. Grand Lake connects with Shadow Mountain Lake via a canal, and just down the road is Lake Granby, the second largest body of water in Colorado.
