Winter at Paonia

​​​​Plunge deep into nature at this narrow lake park. Steep mountainsides, pristine water, alpine scenery and peaceful environment make Paonia a haven for water and nature lovers.

Camp​ near a babbling stream, water-ski on a mountain reservoir, have a picnic, observe wildlife, all in view of the majestic Ragged Mountains. The park's natural beauty and abundance of wildflowers make it a "must see" for photographers and nature lovers.

Colorado State Parks in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation recently rehabilitated several areas of the park. Visitors can relax here; for one day or for several.

Seasonal Closure​

Paonia State Park has closed for the winter season. There are no facilities available at Paonia during the winter months. Paonia State Park will reopen for the summer season May 2015. See the news release​ for more information.​
