Grand Lake

Known as the "Western Gateway" to the Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake has something for everyone. The charming lakeside setting of Grand Lake makes folks feel at home. Enjoy the quaint cabins and summer homes that line the shores of the state's largest natural lake, stroll down the historic boardwalk with over 60 shops, restaurants, and galleries, or take in a show at the new Rocky Mountain Repertory Theater. 

Grand Lake has year- round recreation for everyone to enjoy. In the summer, hike, bike, or ATV through unspoiled terrain or boat, sail, or fish on Grand Lake, home to one of the oldest yacht clubs in the west. In the winter, Grand Lake, deemed the "Snowmobiling Capital of Colorado", transforms into a winter wonderland with miles and miles of trails for snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, and of course, snowmobiling.

Whether you stay for a day, a week, or a lifetime, Grand Lake awaits you.
