The Most Remote Lake In Colorado Is Also The Most Peaceful
If you are a tried and true Coloradan, you know lakes are about as famous (and beautiful!) as it gets, making finding an empty and somewhat peaceful one all the more difficult. Never fear: Your friends at Only in Colorado have found a quiet and remote lake just for you, which can be found at the little-known North Park.
Welcome to North Park: South Park's less-popular counterpart that is deemed not only the Moose Viewing Capital of the World but also the perfect place for a tranquil lake excursion.
Spanning a Jackson County valley, North Park is home to the headwaters of the North Platte River, plus smaller tributaries and the aptly-named North, South, and East Lakes.
Whether you are looking to hike, picnic, or simply relax, you are guaranteed the perfect lakeside experience at North Park!
Are you an expert fisherman or want to give the sport a try? You have come to the right place, as the North Park lakes and rivers are billed as having some of the best fishing in the Centennial State.
In addition to its lakes, the 71,000-acre North Park is also home to the aforementioned wildlife sightings, plus world-class stargazing, snowmobiling, hiking, biking, and much more.
When you visit, be sure also to check out some of the nearby towns for charming shops, dining, and historic sites.
