Rifle Gap State Park

Description

The clean, clear waters of Rifle Gap State Park’s 350-acre reservoir provide one of the best settings for water-related activities in Colorado. The long, narrow reservoir is inviting to water-skiers, jet-skiers and power boaters. Conditions are often good for sailing and windsurfing. Anglers catch trout, walleye, pike, bass, and yellow perch. The beach on the west side of the reservoir is popular for its swimming. The park also offers good wildlife watching opportunities that vary throughout the year as waterfowl, elk and other migratory animals pass by. Colorado Parks and Wildlife gets everyone outdoors! Attracting more than 12 million visitors per year, Colorado's 43 State Parks are a vital cornerstone of Colorado's economy and quality of life. Colorado State Parks encompass 224,447 land and water acres, offering some of the best outdoor recreation destinations in the state. Colorado Parks and Wildlife is a leader in providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, protecting the state’s favorite landscapes, teaching generations about nature and partnering with communities.
