Boyd Lake, our newest fishery, is an impoundment known for its abundant shad population leading to healthy largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleyes, white bass and others.
Boyd Lake State Park is a water-sports haven for northern Colorado. The lake lies at the western-most edge of the plains at the foot of snow-capped Long’s Peak and the mountains of the Continental Divide.
Boyd Lake State Park has something for everyone: boating, fishing, camping, picnicking, swimming, hiking, biking, and hunting.
All types of watercraft: ski boats, fishing boats, jet skis, sailboats, canoes, use Boyd Lake’s 1,700 surface-acres of water. Boyd also has a sandy beach and a pavilion for swimmers. Boyd Lake State Park also has a modern campground with 148 paved pull-through sites that can accommodate vehicles up to 40 feet in length. (Description courtesy of Colorado Parks & Wildlife)
