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.


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.

Swim Beach

Summer is here and that means SWIMMING!  Swimming is only allowed in the Rock Canyon Swim Beach and not in the Reservoir.

Rock Canyon Beach has a sandy beach, grassy areas, picnic tables with grills, volleyball courts, restrooms/showers and vending machines.  You can bring the whole family out for the day of swimming and picnicking fun.

The beach is open Thursday through Monday, 11 am to 6 pm.  Entrance is free to the beach, but a park pass is required on every vehicle that enters the park.

New this year:  Paddleboards and kayaks are permitted on the backside of the swimming area.  Carry in your own, or rent one from the Laketime Rentals (set up on the beach).

Please remember:  Leave your furry friend at home when planning a trip to the beach.  Dogs are not allowed in the beach compound.  For your bare feet's safety:  glass is also not permitted in the beach.
