Lathrop’s two lakes offer something for every water recreationist, from the power boater and canoeist to the sailor, swimmer and angler. Because of Lathrop’s location in southern Colorado between the foothills and plains, the lakes’ water is often warmer than most mountain lakes and reservoirs at higher elevations, averaging 75 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. Bring your jetskis and waterskis and enjoy these activities on Martin Lake. Boating is limited to hand launched boats from October 15 to March 15 each year, unless otherwise posted.
