This pet-friendly attraction is a great location for friends and family to be close to nature while cooling off in the water. The Boyd Lake State Park is clean and quiet, perfect for a getaway from your busy life. The park also has bathrooms and other facilities for your convenience.
Boyd Lake has over 1,700 surface acres of water. You can enjoy almost any water sport you can imagine: boating, fishing, swimming, and more. And, most types of watercraft are allowed on the lake, including ski/fishing boats, jet skis, canoes, and sailboats.
The swimming area is closed, though you can swim anywhere else on the lake. No dogs are allowed in the swimming area.
Bring your fishing license to catch walleye, white bass, catfish and smallmouth bass. New to fishing? Hire a fishing guide to help you find the best spots on the lake to catch a big fish or visit one of the fishing gear shops to get insider's tips.
Hop on a boat and cruise across the beautiful, blue waters of Boyd Lake. You can water ski, wakeboard, kneeboard, tube and slalom-ski during your stay at our RV resort. (Note that only the south end of the lake is open to water skiing, according to the Angler Guide.) If you just need to cool off, find a good place to drop anchor and swan dive into the water from the deck of your boat.
If your boat has an out-of-state seal, you won't be allowed to boat on Boyd Lake. Unless for special events like boat races, your boat can't go over 40 miles per hour.

Bring your GPS to find hidden items and treasures in designated areas throughout the park. If you take something from the cache, be sure to put something back in for someone else to find. Become part of a group of geocachers in Colorado below.
