Visit Heeney, Colorado
The little community of Heeney is 8,000 feet above sea level and nestled between two spectacular mountain ranges, the Gore and Williams Peak. This area, one of Colorado’s best-kept secrets, includes the Lower Blue River Valley, the Green Mountain Reservoir, and the popular Cataract Lake & Falls in the Eagles Nest Wilderness area. Heeney is in Summit County and is only 30-40 minutes from Keystone, Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and Copper Mountain ski resorts. The entire area offers a unique change of scenery and peace from the big resorts down the road.
Heeney was established in the late 1930s as an offshoot of the Dam construction. In the summer, the lake is a boater’s playground – fishing boats, jet skiing, water skiing, and pontoon cruising are all popular. The Lower Blue River is Gold Medal Trout Waters above the lake and Wild Trout Waters below the dam. It challenges fly fishermen almost year-round. Winter offers huge lake trout to the patient ice fishermen. The surrounding area also has a lot to offer as far as hiking, camping, off-roading, and awesome views. Heeney has a small marina that provides a public boat ramp, dockside fuel, slip rentals, and boat rentals. A small liquor store and tackle shop are also in the town. At the south end of the lake, at the inlet, are cabin rentals and a small convenience-type store.
The area is a lot like it was 50 years ago, with beautiful hay meadows and grazing cattle. There is still a lot of wildlife in the area, including elk and deer quite often seen grazing early morning or late afternoon. Come get away from it all in Heeney!
