About Trinidad Lake Park

At Trinidad Lake, visitors can expect sunshine, piñon pine- and juniper-covered hills, great fishing, water sports, abundant birds and wildlife, rich history, and heritage as part of an outstanding day, weekend or extended vacation at the park. Plus, this park is less than 5 miles from Trinidad, the most southern Colorado city via I-25.

Activities at Trinidad Lake

The semi-desert climate and sunshine at the park provide year-round access to these activities. The lake offers jet and water skiing, sailing, power boating, canoeing, and other water sports. Anglers can try their luck for rainbow and brown trout, bass, catfish, walleye, crappie, and bluegill.

Miles of trails are winding through ancient and interesting local history, spectacular scenery, and great wildlife viewing. A horno (adobe oven) and Native American archaeological site are near the amphitheater.


The scenic campground offers full hookups and services. Access to the park is easy from I-25, and therefore a good base camp to explore other area attractions like the Santa Fe Trail, the Highway of Legends Scenic Byway, and the historic mining town of Trinidad. — Back to All State Parks.
