The Rio Grande River between South Fork and Del Norte is designated Gold Medal Waters.

Beaver Creek Pond allows no wake boats and has a boat ramp from October 1 to December 31 you can catch and keep Kokanee Salmon; in winter it's a great location for snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Pass Creek beginning at the top of Pass Creek Road near the top of Wolf Creek pass; if you're looking for a challenge this little gem has tons of fish, anglers will love the fly-fishing here. Big Meadows Reservoir is a great destination for families with small boat ramp for wakeless boating from Memorial day to late October; and ice-fishing in the winter; there are restroom, picnic tables and concessions.
