North Park, Colorado

I've never even heard of North Park, Colorado before, and I've lived in Colorado all my life. Where is it, exactly?

You won't be surprised to learn that North Park is way up north in Colorado! It's almost in Wyoming.

  • It's 12 miles from Walden, which is to the south.
  • It's an hour from Laramie, Wyoming, which is to the northwest.
  • It's two hours west of Fort Collins, if you go the fastest way - which is through Laramie.
  • It's northwest of the Colorado Medicine Bow National Forest.

 

That sounds great, but it also sounds like it's very out of the way! I may make it up there sometime, but what are some other lakes I should visit in Colorado?
