Barr Lake State Park
|Visit our Web site|
Nature enthusiasts will enjoy a unique combination of activities: wildlife watching, educational programs, boating, hunting, archery, and fishing at Barr Lake State Park. A Wildlife-watcher's paradise, Barr Lake is known as an exceptional wildlife habitat. The Park is a Colorado wildlife refuge and is home to the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory. A pair of eagles nest in the park each spring.
The southwest side of the lake and the marshes along its edge provide habitat for numerous species of birds, including great blue herons, bald eagles and pelicans. You can watch more than 300 different species of birds from the comfort of a lakeside gazebo, from boat (10 horsepower or less) on the northeast end of the lake, or on the Eagle Express, Barr Lake's motorized shuttle trail ride.
Our new Archery Range is open from sunrise to sunset; the range is FREE to use; however, a Park pass is required for entry into the park. There are 12 lanes from 10-100 yards. One Broadhead lane has been installed. Looking to the future the Park plans to add a 3D walking range.
Barr Lake is a DAY-USE ONLY PARK and does not offer camping.
