John Martin Reservoir State Park


Located along the Santa Fe Trail in the Lower Arkansas River Valley, this “sapphire on the plains” is for people to play, birds to flock and wildlife to roam. The park is one of the premier birding locations in the interior United States, and is recognized nationally as an “Important Bird Area” (IBA), with almost 400 species documented in Bent County. Majestic Bald Eagles roost here in winter. After the birds go to sleep, the stars entertain in a dramatic display of celestial light. The park’s vicinity to historic landmarks contributes to make it a year-round destination. 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.
