Check Out 14 Beautiful Colorado Lakes Perfect for Paddling
We are pretty dang lucky to live in the best state in the nation to enjoy the great outdoors and the amazing Colorado scenery.
There is much more to explore than mountains though and today we are going to take a look at some of the super fun attractions that are hiding in between some of these mountains and not all that far from Grand Junction.
Great Lakes for Paddling in Colorado
There are more than 4000 lakes and reservoirs in our state, and that means tons of places to get out on the water and enjoy the outdoors. We've put together a photo gallery showing off some of the great places to go if you enjoy paddling. Kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats are perfect for many of the stops on our list. Some of these lakes do not even allow powerboats, making them an even better fit for your stand-up paddleboat, or just a little more peace and quiet.
