  • Love Ridgeway Probably my favorite state park in all of Colorado. This year the reservoir is at capacity and wonderful. We like Elk Ridge campground for the spacious lots, trees and multiple water hydrants. I try to spend a week here every year. Rangers/Hosts are super helpful.
  • Great place for fishing. Beautiful scenery. Nice clean bathrooms and play ground for the kids. Be sure to have your fishing license, the park rangers/game wardens do come around periodically and check.
