Resting on the shores of the largest natural lake in Colorado, Grand Lake is an alpine village with board sidewalks, log-front stores and the modern amenities of dining and shopping. At 8,369', this rustic town is enveloped by peaks, especially the impressive, bald Mt. Craig. Grand Lake has access to two reservoirs, two national forests, the national park and the Never Summer Wilderness Area which is accessible only by hiking trails. You can horseback ride, boat, hike, golf and river raft in this beautiful area. When the snow starts, Grand Lake and Granby become a winter playground, with groomed trails for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and close by slopes for downhill skiing. Ute, Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes used to hunt and fish in this Middle Park area and when you visit you'll see why this was land worth fighting over.

Grand Lake is near: Hot Sulphur Springs, Kremmling, Walden (North Park) & Winter Park
