Lake-George is located about 37 miles west of Colorado Springs and two hours from Denver. The town sits in the Pike National Forest west of the Ute Pass and contains a general store and motel - but little else. Lake George got its start as a stage stop on the way to Leadville, but today offers many beautiful natural areas with abundant activities for vacationers. Some of those things to do include viewing fossils and petrified redwoods at nearby Florissant Fossil Beds, and boating and fishing in the areas numerous rivers and reservoirs. From Lake George, its just a short drive to the scenic Eleven Mile Reservoir and State Park. Here visitors can enjoy boating and fishing, camping, or hiking on the five miles of trails surrounding the reservoir. Swimming and water skiing are prohibited, however, because the reservoir is a major water supply for the city of Denver. While the local water spots are well known for the excellent fishing, birders will love the abundance of wildlife in the Lake George area. A lack of pollution and artificial light also makes the Lake George area a prime spot to view the night sky. The Wilkerson Pass Interpretive Center and Picnic Grounds, located just eight miles northwest of Lake George, offers a scenic overlook and 1.1-mile hiking trail. Other outdoor activities in the area include rock climbing, rafting, skiing and snowmobiling, horseback riding and golf.

Lake George Weather & Climate

In the geographic center of Colorado,  the weather ranges from semi-arid to alpine mountain climate. The Rocky Mountains, for which the state is so famous, profoundly affects the climate of the region, with dramatic differences over short distances. Elevations range from 7,000 to 14,000 feet at the highest peaks. July daytime temperatures are in the 70s and 80s in the valleys but 50s and 60s higher in the mountains. Winters are very cold and high winds are commonplace on the mountain peaks. Thunderstorms are common in this area nearly every afternoon in the summertime. Snow and soft hail are another possibility anytime of the year. Heavy snows in the high mountains are common and avalanches pose a threat. Visitors should use caution when traveling to this region and bring warm clothing, no matter what time of year.
