Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Welcome to the Boyd Lake State Park Department! Boyd Lake State Park is a water-sports haven for northern Colorado. The park attracts visitors who enjoy boating, camping, water-skiing, swimming, fishing, paddle sports, picnicking, bicycling, walking, hunting and wildlife viewing. The lake lies along the Front Range with impressive views of Long’s Peak. Boyd Lake covers nearly 1,700 surface-acres when full. The
reservoir provides drinking water for the city of Greeley and irrigation water for Colorado farms.

All types of watercraft: ski boats, fishing boats, jet skis, sailboats, canoes, use Boyd Lake's 1,700 surface-acres of water. Boyd Lake 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. View an aerial view of the Cottonwood Campground.

Pets are allowed on Boyd Lake State Park but must be kept on 6 foot leash at all times.
