Lake Pueblo State Park is the southern Colorado destination for sun lovers and water-sports enthusiasts, including boaters, water-skiers, sailors and swimmers. An incredible 400 campsites spread out around the 9,600 acre park can accommodate many visitors. This state park lies immediately west of Pueblo along State Highway 96. Miles of tree-lined hiking and biking trails and mild, year-round sunny weather makes any visit to Lake Pueblo a treat.
Pueblo has one of the warmer climates in Colorado. It lies at 4,690 feet, in a semiarid landscape. The topography provides hot summers and mild winters, although Pueblo easily succumbs to cold snaps that pervade the eastern plains of the state. Generally, the winter temperatures range from the 60 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer temperatures can reach in to triple digits. Usually the daytime highs reach 90 and drop to 80 degrees at night.
Take I-25 to Pueblo, then U.S. 50 west, for four miles. Turn south on Pueblo Boulevard and go four miles to Thatcher Avenue. Turn west and drive six miles to the park.
