Very nice high country lake for fishing. About 20 minutes west of BV. It was windy on the day we visited, but that is common in Colorado

Road going in is a bit bumpy but the scenery is nice and deer plentiful. A lot of people fishing and enjoying the lake.

With the Arkansas river being so high, spent a day fishing on Cottonwood Lake. Nice size rainbow trouts, pretty lake, and easy to get to.

Liked: fun fishing, gorgeous scenery, not too crowded, clean "outhouse" (for a park service variety)
Disliked: bumpy roads getting there (only way in), no running water anywhere besides the lake, more restrooms would be nice for a lake that large

Enjoy a nice drive off the main road to enjoy this lovely lake back in the aspens. Although there is a day use fee for some organized grounds, one side of the lake has free public access and is well-used by fisher people and those with various water craft. It is just a curiosity to watch experienced lake folks jump into their waders, pump up their water craft and take off into the lake. This is a nice side drive for those going up or down the canyon to Cottonwood Pass.
