History of Jackson Lake
Land around the reservoir was used for agricultural purposes for several decades. It wasn’t until 1962 that the area began to see recreational use. The State of Colorado purchased property around the reservoir and managed the area as a hunting and fishing sanctuary.In 1965, the Colorado Game, Fish and Parks Department assumed responsibility for the recreational facilities at Jackson Lake Reservoir, and Jackson Lake State Park was born. Today Jackson Lake State Park is known as an “oasis in the plains.” Park visitors come to enjoy some of the best boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing conditions in Colorado. With 3,303 acres of land and water to explore, Jackson Lake State Park is truly paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.
