​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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 launching hours are now in effect. The South and North 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.

Be Prepared with a Camping Reservation

From this point forward, you should plan on making a reservation​ if you want to be gua​ranteed a campsite on the weekends.

Summer fun is happening NOW.

Swimming is only allowed at the Rock Canyon Swim Beach and it is open for the summer and will close Labor Day September 5, 2016. The hours are 11 am to 6 pm, Thursdays through Mondays (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays). There is no extra fee for the beach, but a park pass is required on every vehicle that enters the park.

In addition to swimming, the area provides a sandy beach area, picnic tables, shaded areas, charcoal grills and restroom facilities.  We also have vending machines for snacks and stand-up paddleboard rentals.  Bring the whole family and spend the day at the beach!

Please note: Pets are not allowed in the swim beach compound. It is not safe to leave pets in a hot car, so plan to leave your pets at home when vi​s​iting the beach. Glass is also not permitted at the beach. Gas grills are not allowed in the beach compound, but bring your charcoal for the grills that are provided.

More on Swimming Rules...

Swimming is NOT allowed in the reservoir. Cliff-diving is also strictly prohibited and extremely dangerous. 

Wading is permit​​ted in the reservoir. A good way to know that you are wading: your feet are always touching the ground.  You are walking around the water, not propelling yourself with your arms.
