Paddle Boarding

Home of the Colorado River headwaters and Colorado’s largest natural lake, Grand County has the most accessible water in Colorado to play in: swimming, boating, fishing, and even stand up paddle boarding—there’s almost no limit!

Stand up paddle boards (SUP) offer a fun and relaxing way to play on the lakes of Grand County. With as little as a board and a paddle, you can glide across the tranquil lakes amidst the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and get up close and personal with nature and wildlife. Although relaxing, SUP is still a sport, so you will be getting a full-body workout. Plan a relaxing evening in town after your day out on the lakes.

From Shadow Mountain Lake to Lake Granby to Grand Lake, visitors can get up and paddle through the calm waters of Grand County to experience the fastest-growing water sport in the area. And with unsurpassable, expansive Rocky Mountain views, you might be tempted to take a break, relax, and take in the beauty of your surroundings from a new perspective that only a SUP can offer.
