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.

BOAT LAUNCH/ANS INSPECTION HOURS:

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

Swimming is allowed only at the Rock Canyon Swim Beach.  It is currently closed for the season and will re-open on Memorial Day Weekend 2015!​​

Campground Construction Impacts Spring 2015 Camping

For this spring only, reservations will not be available for electrical sites due to facility​ construction in Arkansas Point, Prairie Ridge and Yucca Flats. You can make reservations right now in Juniper Breaks. Kettle Creek will be up for reservations starting May 1.

Updated information is available on the 2015 Construction Update​ page.​​

UPDATE AS OF MAY 19, 2015

Here's the latest scoop on the campgrounds for Memorial Day weekend:

  • All four buildings in Arkansas Point are open and so is the campground. There are still a few glitches being worked on by the contractors, but it will not impact operations.
    NOTE: There are NO reservations being taken for this weekend. Everything is first-come-first-served. I suspect we might be full pretty early on Friday based on the calls and inquiries we are getting.

  • PRAIRIE RIDGE WILL NOT BE OPEN THIS WEEKEND. NO WORD ON WHEN IT WILL BE OPEN AT THIS TIME.

  • The rain and utility issues has put a real wrench in the progress at Yucca Flats.
    Two things have happened:
    1. ​The rain has stopped the concrete work. Only one building has concrete and hopefully more will be done starting tomorrow.

    2. More importantly, there is NO ELECTRICITY in Yucca. We are waiting on the utility company to install the meters. We suspect the earliest that could be done is by the end of the day on Thursday.
This means...we really have no idea if Yucca will get open for the weekend at this point. We won't know until the last minute. We will do everything we can to get it open as soon as the concrete and electric is in. It will be a priority by all staff to check Yucca and get it open ASAP....hopefully afternoon Friday, maybe later. Stand By!

  • ​Juniper Breaks and Kettle Creek are booked for the weekends.

  • Eagle View will be first-come-first-serve, just like Arkansas Point.
​​CAMPGROUNDS FULLY OPEN ARE:

  • ​​All of Juniper Breaks Campground (sites 100-183)
    NOTE: JBC is a non-electric campground with vault restroom facilities and water is available.

  • Eagle View (sites 300-316) in Northern Plains. Eagle View has electrical hook ups and a place to fill up with water.
    NOTE: no shower, laundry or dump station facilities are available in Eagle View the winter. A vault restroom is open.

  • All of Kettle Creek (sites 500-534) in Northern Plains.
    NOTE: KCC is a non-electric campground with vault restroom facilities and water is available.​​
