Water Recreation Near Colorado Springs

The Colorado Springs area is an outdoorsman’s paradise with Pike’s Peak and the Garden of the Gods nearby. Hiking, cycling, picnicking, nature watching and much more are not far away. However, if you are a boating enthusiast, you are in luck! You will definitely want to check out the many reservoirs with breathtaking views of mountains and terrain. Many do not allow power boats, but you can canoe, kayak or row as much as you like. Some also allow electric powered boats. Bodies of water with these restrictions include Crystal, North Catamount and South Catamount Reservoirs. If you prefer power boats, wakeboarding and water skiing then Rampart Reservoir may be for you. It is the largest lake in the area and allows boats with no restrictions after May 18th. Boat rentals are available at marinas in the area including craft with marine stereos and speakers, so you can listen to your favorite music while you ski! Shop around for the best deal and the boat that fits your needs. Other smaller lakes and reservoirs dot the landscape around Colorado Springs so opportunities abound!

All of these amazing adventures are available just outside your door when you stay at Hughes Hacienda Bed & Breakfast!
