“Lovely little lake”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

A short drive down an unpaved road takes you to this cute little lake. There were several people fishing when I visited, so it must be a good fishin' hole. I believe that it must be very pretty in that area in the fall.

“Pretty Lake”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

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

“A nice small lake with a lot of fishermen!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

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

“Great Fishing!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

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.

“Beautiful vistas while you're fishing or hiking or camping”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

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
