Grand Lake

Grand Lake sits at an elevation of 8369 feet (2551 m) and is Colorado’s largest and deepest natural lake, and part of the headwaters of the Colorado River. The Town of Grand Lake was originally an outfitting and supply point for the mining settlements of Lulu City, Teller City, and Gaskill, but today is a tourist destination adjacent to the western entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park which also surrounds the lake and the town on three sides.
