Elkhead Reservoir State Park is located in the beautiful Yampa Valley of Northwest Colorado between Hayden and Craig. It's truly a hidden gem and one of the bigger lakes in the area at 900 acres. Our kiosk is only open on the weekends throughout the summer but since it's such a hidden gem we usually have several options ready to get you out on the water. Other recreational opportunities abound when you visit Elkhead so bring your bike, hiking shoes, swimsuits, and of course a picnic lunch and make sure to enjoy the park from one of it's many sandy beaches.
