While fishing is the draw for many, both in the reservoir, nearby Mixed Lake and the Conejos reservoir, the area offers much more, including camping nearby, historical sites, wildlife viewing, numerous hiking and mountain biking trails, and hunting when in season. For those fishing the area by boat, be aware that the boat ramp is very primitive. Fluctuating water levels can make boat launching very difficult at times, especially for larger boats. To get here from Alamosa, take Highway 285 south 20 miles to Antonito. Take Highway 17 West to USFS Road 250 and go north on USFS Road 250 to the reservoir.
