A great place to go when there is water! Due to the recent drought, the water level is so low that they closed the dock! And don't walk out there unless you want to get stuck in the mud! Two guys in a canoe tipped...More

The reservoir is really super low right now and can get very crowded at the points where you can easily get down the dry shore slope. Boat ramp is closed due to the low water. No human contact allowed with the water as it is...More

Rampart Reservoir is a favorite fishing spot of mine. There's lots of shoreline and, depending on how far you're willing to walk, any number of "hot spots." The reservoir receives it's regular allotment of rainbow, cutbow, etc. trout, all of "stocker" size, 10-13 inches. In...More

Gorgeous setting, The area is coming back nicely since the Waldo Canyon fire. Its really a pretty place to kayak, and paddle board. It does get a bit congested on weekends.

A little difficult to get to, this is a lovely little spot. Nice views. A fire a few years ago ravaged some of the land, but, hey, that's nature. You can take Rampart Range Road up from Colorado Springs, which is a spectacular climb. If...More
