Sylvan Lake State Park


Among aspen glades and high-mountain timber, Sylvan Lake provides serenity in an alpine park perfect for daydreaming. Non-motorized boating and non-electrical camping offer the opportunity for quiet recreation at this gateway to the White River National Forest and the Holy Cross Wilderness. The lush vegetation in the aspen forest provides habitat for a variety of mammals, including marmots, black bear, pine marten, coyote, and porcupine. The majority of bird species are those common to montane riparian shrublands and thick conifer/aspen forests, such as broad-tailed hummingbirds and mountain bluebirds. Bald eagles are frequent winter residents to the park. 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.
