The 70-acre lake is operated in conjunction with the Colorado City Metro District and the Colorado Division of Wildlife. This facility is not only stocked for fishing, but offers a wide variety of outdoor activities. A 1.4-mile cement walkway surrounds the lake and is used for walking, running, biking, and rollerblading. Canoes, pedal boats, kayaks and electric trolling motors are commonly seen on the lake. No gas operated motors are allowed on the water.
