Lake Pueblo

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Lake Pueblo, rated a fishing “hot spot,” provides over 4,600 surface acres of water, 60 miles of shorelin​​e and almost 10,000 acres of land. Along with the sunny days and a mild year-round climate, visitors quickly learn that one day is not enough.

Full service marinas and a diversity of campsites welcome guests to stay awhile. Water recreation includes sailing, motor-boating, waterskiing, river tubing and prime fishing. Boaters choose from two full-service marinas and boat ramps.

Land recreation includes hiking, biking, picnicking and diverse nature exploration. Miles of trails make it easy to discover the beauty of the shady Arkansas River below the dam or the wonder of 200-year-old Juniper trees. Wet or dry activities culminate with camping options that encourage a day of play to become a mini-vacation.

Views of the Greenhorn and Wet mountain ranges to the southwest and the magnificent Pikes Peak to the north are a splendid way to end the day. It is no wonder that Lake Pueblo State Park is a favorite destination.


​The park is preparing to replace many trails and roads. See the public notice and opportunity to comment​ on potential resource impacts. Please make all comments to the address in the notice by April 27, 2015.​​​​


Summer hours are now in effect.  The ramps are open 5 am to 11 pm daily unless there is inclement weather to make launching unsafe. 

Lake Pueblo is open to boating 24 hours a day, but boats can only be launched when the inspection stations are open. When the stations are closed, the gates to the boat ramps will be locked and no boats will be able to enter or leave the water.
