Aquatic Activities

Thanks to the reservoir’s massive size, there are a myriad of recreational water activities to try during your visit.

Summer
In the summer months, boating, kayaking, and canoeing are very popular. Swimming is permitted but only in specified, well-maintained areas, as well as in some of the coves.

Spring & Fall
For spring or fall visitors, the reservoir’s waters are less welcoming. In these months, the sport of bouldering is a well-established Horsetooth climbing pastime to take part in. However, the hard Dakota sandstone proves to be a difficult challenge to overcome for even the most skilled climbers.
