Lake Granby is one of the largest bodies of water in Colorado and is approximately 8 miles from the town of Granby.

It was created by the erection of Granby Dam, completed in 1950, as part of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project. Lake Granby contains approximately 40 miles of shoreline and is surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest. Camping and picnicking is popular in summer and there are many areas to choose from.  More info HERE. The lake is popular with anglers, in both winter and summer.  It is home to Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Lake Trout (Mackinaw) and Kokanee Salmon. In January, Lake Granby hosts the 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Tournament, one of largest and longest running tournaments in the West.
