Calling all starhounds! This is your chance to see the best of Colorado’s night sky. Find hot Milky Way action and some of the prettiest vistas in the state, day or night. When you aren’t setting up for the time lapse of a lifetime, spend your day discovering the hidden canyons along the reservoir by boat or hiking/biking the five miles of trails. Camp backcountry or along the shoreline for a truly wild experience, just be “bear aware” of the black bears that call Eleven Mile home. Other than the elusive bear (how could would it be to see one?!) there's tons of other wildlife to catch a glimpse of, including many migratory birds. An anglers paradise, you can catch ‘em and grill ‘em right here or try your hand at windsurfing if you’re not a prize fisherman. Eleven Mile is a truly special slice of Colorado that’s sure to fill your camera and your memory for a lifetime.
