The bigger the pond, the better the fishing? We’re not exactly sure if that’s true, but camp at Pelican Campground and toss a line in the adjacent Pelican Pond—one of the larger bodies of water at St. Vrain State Park—and report back to us. For the best pond-front view, try to reserve site 20.

The photo shown here is not accurate, nor is the name. Pelican is the name of one of the lakes and also of one of the camping loops at St. Vrain State Park. It's a beautiful park, well known to birders and fishing enthusiasts. I'll upload photos later. I love this park and have spent lots of time there.
